Julian Assange facing arrest over 'rape'

This arrest warrant was quickly withdrawn. See http://www.upi.com/Top_News/US/2010/08/21/Sweden-drops-WikiLeaks-rape-warrant/UPI-63341282392349.

This entire incident is very suspicous. Instinctively, I didn't believe the allegations when they were first reported.

If the CIA was responsible for causing bogus charges against Julian Assange, this could - and should - come back to haunt the agency and will further harm the image of the USA in the outside world.

I can't think of anything more un-American than trumping up allegations against someone for exercising their freedom of speech and freedom to publish information.

Cayman Court Secrecy: A Huge Red Flag for Foreign Investors & Clients
David Marchant
As any fule kno, the biggest enemy of fraud, corruption, money laundering, and other forms of financial crime is transparency, while their best friend is secrecy. That's why the unprecedented mass sealing of cases that's taking place at the Financial Services Division of the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands is repugnant to anyone with a genuine concern for financial crime.
