Opposing Assange's Extradition Is Wrong!

"Capable generous men do not create victims, they nurture victims….. I’m a combative person so I’m not actually so big on the nurture. But there is another way of nurturing victims which is to police perpetrators of crime.” So said Julian Assange. He posted these words, it is alleged, on a private dating site, but, applying his standards, it is completely fair to publicize them and use them against him.

Now, the Wikileaks founder remains in custody in the UK as Sweden attempts to extradite him to face questioning, and then perhaps trial, for sex offenses allegedly committed against two women. In spite of attacks on their characters and specious allegations of links to security services around the globe, all the credible evidence suggests that these are reliable witnesses and victims with sound prima facie cases.
