Assange's victims want justice

Written by Nick Farell

We are not pawns
The two women who have had their names dragged through the mud by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange have said they are not pawns of the CIA, but just want justice for a violation of their ''sexual integrity''.

After they complained to the coppers about Assange, they have been called every name under the sun, including a weapon of the CIA to silence Wikileaks. Their Stockholm lawyer Claes Borgstrom the pair were not out for money either. He said that it was upsetting that Mr Assange and some of his supporters were suggesting the case was a smear campaign against the whistleblowing website, Borgstrom said. ''He's been spreading false rumours that he knows are untrue.''

However they have a point in that there can be very few sex cases where two victims are blasted more than the person they accused, before the case gets to trial.

Bragging on Twitter that you had Sex with someone and went on cool parties with him - and later, after you have found out that the "bastard" slept with another woman at the same time, calling this rape, is definitely strange.

Sounds more like a revengeful woman to me ...

@ 2 women: saying you're not CIA's pawns doesn't make you less so

I would be inclined to believe these two ... women, except for the oddly coincidental timing of their allegations.
This whole thing smells so bad - but I think most people these days can (for the most part) discern reality from a dog and pony show.

Don't let the f*ckers take your Common sense too!

Assange's victims want justice

You sure about that? At least one of them isn't cooperating with police...and even in HER OWN tweets (Anna Ardin, the one not cooperating) is siding with wikileaks and Assange.

Somebody wants justice, but it isn't her.

Desperate governments, desperate measures. If you're gonna make a career of embarrassing governments worldwide, you can't have a social life. Or at least have the women you sleep with sign a legally binding document indicating consent. :lol:

What's more interesting is the article the guardian published about the actual charges and happenings, seems it is all very mild and lame and she had assange stay for a week in her house AFTER the 'assault' and in fact sleeping in her bed, and they even threw a party for him AFTER the incidents in the accusation.

I think nick should read that article too.

Incidentally the reason why those women are 'dragged through the mud' is that the prosecutor against swedish law released the name of assange, which not only causes the backlash against the women but also is nicely proving something unsavory is going on with this case.
However if they are part of an CIA plot or are merely scorned and their action is being used by the bastards in the shadows as a weapon is of course unknown, but assange at least met them so he has more of a footing to pick a standpoint than we do I guess.
And he has a reason to get a little paranoid, if that's what it is.
