I would have rated you funny. Honestly, you don't have to reach out from some grand governmental conspiracy to explain what is going on.
Assange was staying at one woman's house, banged her, then while still using her place as home base, goes out and bangs some other fan-girl. Fan-girl unwittingly contacts the woman who Assange was staying with trying to get in touch with him. The feminist hostess puts two and two together, gets pissed and decides to extract her pound of flesh for revenge. Takes it to the police to see if they can force him to take an STD test. Then it hits the media and all hell breaks loose. Now everyone is scrambling to try to save face. It gets picked up by a prosecutor attempting to make a name for himself in feminist circles and to continues to snowball. Now the only way to save face is if someone at minimum gets legally slapped on the wrist for bad behavior. For Assange & his supporters it is far easier to blame some grand governmental conspiracy than to deal with the accusations being leveled at him.
You don't need some grand governmental conspiracy to explain what is going on. A better explanation is that everyone here is acting in their own self interest, except for the poor fan-girl who got unwittingly drug into this mess.
All of this and the US government didn't have to lift a finger. They have done the best thing possible, which is to sit back, do nothing, break out the popcorn, let people hang themselves and enjoy.
