Truth is stranger than fiction so why not?
I'm of a number of minds about the situation anyway:
Assange isn't above the law and should have at a minimum been interrogated by the swedish judge and possibly been behind bars
Assange's claim for a noble reason for jumping bail is bogus - the U.S. can extradite him easier from the U.K. than from Sweden.
Wikileaks is nothing more than the mouth of Putin's dirt excavations and as such is just as dirty as those whose dirty laundry he exposes.
Assange's self-assumed impunity to prosecution is overblown:
- He's never been on U.S. soil & isn't a U.S. citizen - not needed to for prosecution of knowingly spreading classified materials
- They'll never catch me! - Only if Moreno, who has replaced Correa decides he's worth the hassle.
- I'll make a stink! - Any stink Assange makes is tiny compared to Trump's self-made scandals.
- Putin will protect me! - Everyone now sees that Wikileaks "independence" is fake. Putin will easily find another mouthpiece that isn't as transparent as Wikileaks has become.
