    Yep, it shows that the authorities cannot be trusted. That's what he's been saying all along.

    One witness is said to have stated: "Not only had it been the world's worst screw, it had also been violent."

    But it still doesn't point to assault. Just sounds like she wasn't satisfied and now taking it out on him. Some people like it rough yet good. Julian seems like he was rough yet bad. A woman's worst nightmare.

    How exactly is it any different than what he did. I'm all for wikileaks, but it seems pretty hypocritical to say leaking one thing is ok, and leaking another is not.

    Well subjectively taken it can be seen as hypocritical but the world is not black and white. And the message 'we won't tell about you if you don't tell about us' is just wrong. This is not some mafiotic omerta movie.

    If he truly is worried, it is because such leak can influence the public which in turn will put pressure on a court to declare him guilty whatever the facts. Now if courts are really independent (as they are supposed to be in almost every constitution) he should be fine with any publicly made statement or fact.

    But the whole hypocrisy can be avoided all together if the prosecutors agree that their own private stuff is made public as well. That would be interesting :D

    I post a thread showing how Assange is a hypocrite and some one negative reps. me?

    Whether you agree or disagree with WikiLeaks objectives, for Assange to cry foul at this stage is hypocrisy and certainly ironic.

    I'm sure the guy is scared as hell. Who wouldn't be? He's not even worried about the Sweden charges, he's worried about possible extradition to the United States.

    WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange Signs $1.5 Million Book Deal

    'I don't want to write this book, but I have to,' Internet activist says as he fights Swedish criminal charges.

    Julian Assange, the WikiLeaks founder currently out on bail following his arrest on a sex-crimes warrant, confirmed Sunday that he has landed a lucrative deal for his autobiography.

    He said the sum -- about $1.5 million -- will be used to fight the allegations that he sexually assaulted two women in Sweden. The deal is with U.K. publisher Canongate, who will handle the translation rights according to business website Daily Finance, and U.S. publisher Alfred A. Knopf, who will provide the bulk of the salary to the tune of $800,000.

    "I don't want to write this book, but I have to," Assange told Britain's Sunday Times. "I have already spent 200,000 pounds for legal costs and I need to defend myself and to keep WikiLeaks afloat."

    Wikileaks, which continues to cause international controversy for its releasing of nearly 250,000 classified US State Department cables, has been facing further financial difficulties after Bank of America, Visa, MasterCard and PayPal blocked donations to the site.

    Assange remains in Britain fighting Sweden's efforts to extradite him for the sexual assault claims. A hearing in London is scheduled for February 7. There have also been reports that the U.S. is looking at ways to extradite him for the State Department leaks.
