WikiLeaks founder falsely accused of rape

The arrest warrant issued for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on suspicion of rape was sensationally withdrawn tonight.

Swedish prosecutors made the dramatic u-turn less than 24 hours after the document was originally issued, saying it had been based on an unfounded accusation.

Confusion now surrounds the case which has been branded a 'dirty tricks' campaign by Assange and his Wikileaks team.

The whistleblowers were preparing to release a fresh batch of classified U.S. documents from the Afghan war.


This shows yet again that false accusations of sexual offences can be and are routinely used to destroy the lives of innocent men. What more effective way is there of destroying a man? It's a silver bullet.

This is a blatantly sexist aspect of our culture, and a gross sexual injustice. Do you hear feminists complaining about it? No. Quite the reverse. They are largely responsible for promoting this climate of fear and suspicion.
