Summary: Never say the US government can’t accomplish anything! Julian Assange of Wikileaks has been smeared with dubious (at best) charges and trapped in Equador’s embassy for the past 5 years by the Swedish and British governments. Coincidence or mission accomplished? Review the story and decide.
“A just city should favor justice and the just, hate tyranny and injustice, and give them both their just desserts.”
— Al-Farabi (aka Alpharabius), Islamic philosopher and scientist (872-950).
The Swedish government closed the flimsy investigation of sexual assault as the the statute of limitations runs out. The limit on the obviously bogus rape investigation has 5 more years to run.
Both Sweden and Britain refused to guarantee that they would not extradite Assange to the United State — to receive the kangaroo court justice typical of our national security cases.
Assange sought refuge in Equador’s London embassy. They granted him a well-deserved political asylum on 19 July 2012. Since then Britain has spent over $17 million to keep Julian Assange from escaping from the Ecuadorian Embassy. No price is too great for UK taxpayers to pay when serving the needs of the USA! Britain intends to whine about this to Ecuador.
The Swedish government says that their investigation requires an interview with Assange, but they refuses to interview Assange in London. The Guardian describes their sorry excuses and stalling…
For more than four years Ny refused to go to London to interview Assange, but changed her mind in March after a Swedish court questioned her failure to make progress in the investigation.
… But it was June before the Swedish government made an official request to Ecuador to enter the embassy, and an agreed date to begin interrogation a week later had to be scrapped. After a tense standoff in which each side blamed the other for delays, this week they agreed to formal talks over judicial cooperation, potentially breaking the deadlock – but not in time to prevent the time limit on most of the accusations running out.
… Assange said: “She has managed to avoid hearing my side of the story entirely. This is beyond incompetence. I am strong but the cost to my family is unacceptable.”
Britain’s Foreign Minister Hugo Swir plans to a formal whine to the Ecuadorian government. “Ecuador must recognise that its decision to harbour Mr Assange more than three years ago has prevented the proper course of justice.”
“Just out of curiosity, is there any evidence that Assange would be extradited to the US if he went to Sweden?”
— Journalist Michael Cohen

It is possible that these events have happened with little or no intervention from the US. If so, we should send our senior intel officials to Vegas. The winnings from such lucky people could balance the budget.
