I love the smell of burning irony on a Sunday:

LAWYERS for Julian Assange have expressed anger about an alleged smear campaign against the Australian WikiLeaks founder.

Incriminating police files were published in the British newspaper that has used him as its source for hundreds of leaked US embassy cables.

In a move that surprised many of Mr Assange’s closest supporters on Saturday, The Guardian newspaper published previously unseen police documents that accused Mr Assange in graphic detail of sexually assaulting two Swedish women. One witness is said to have stated: “Not only had it been the world’s worst screw, it had also been violent.”

Bjorn Hurtig, Mr Assange’s Swedish lawyer, said he would lodge a formal complaint to the authorities and ask them to investigate how such sensitive police material leaked into the public domain.

My year will be complete if the police reply, “we got the documents from WikiLeaks, dude.”

For those of you keeping score at home, here’s the deal: leaked documents about Julian Assange being a lousy lay constitutes “sensitive” material that should never see the light of day, but information about national security issues and secrets that can get people killed is the kind of necessary transparency that ultimately makes the world a freer and safer place in which to live.

Julian Assange and Michael Moore should just move to Ironyclown Island and live happily ever after together.

    You shouldn't insult clowns like that.

    Such deliscious irony, Doug ! As if any were needed, here`s more proof that whiny libs can dish it out but they cannot take it ! And there`s the disgruntled leaky gay cpl. complaining of being tortured in jail – what ? is he being forced to wear white socks with his prison flip-flops ? No designer bed sheets ? Was bubba a little rough ? I don`t care !!

    Ironyclown Island ! Heh, that`s a place that we all would like to send some celebs and politicians to !! Is it OK if I hope it`s populated with a large tribe of pigmy cannibals ?!

    I would be of the opinion that most rapists abilities are unappreciated by their victims. It's a leap, but it's something I believe.

    I believe all communications between Assange and his attorneys be published online in their totality – with nothing expunge. You know – goose/gander type thing – he couldn't possibly object to the truth being exposed…

  7. David Argall on December 19th, 2010 9:16 pm

    Irony cuts both ways. That Assange does not like his secrets exposed does not mean he is wrong to expose secrets.
    And it seems that those who insist on the need for secrets are also in the business of exposing secrets, which means they are contradicting their own position. And their contradiction is much the worse. They are ultimately our employees and are violating their duties to us.

    "If and when" your mission is to defend against and perhaps even defeat you enemies, then having and keeping your secrets are a must ! It`s not a difficult concept !

  9. SignPainterGuy on December 19th, 2010 9:52 pm

    Your line of thinking is reactionary and totally retributional – I LIKE IT !

    Of course he wouldn`t object, seeing as how all he`s done so far has been in the spirit of fairness !! Right ?!

    The more I read about Assange, the more it becomes clear to me that he is suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder, or NPD. Narcissists believe that the world revolves around them, and that there are different rules for them vs. everyone else. Narcissists love being the center of attention, believe that their personal conflicts are the most important issues in the world, and really don't care who else gets hurt in the process. Hopefully those responsible for our national security will grow a spine and slap this spoiled child hard, but I'm not terribly optimistic about that happening…

  11. SignPainterGuy on December 19th, 2010 11:23 pm

    I feel the same as you, but keep in mind, right now the UK has Assange in their custody, Sweden is the country who issued the arrest warrant and plans to extradite him to face charges there ! The US is at least second in line, unless we nab him, which would create an international incident ! You don`t think Obummer and Holder will risk that do you ?!

    What team in what league at either professional or amateur (and one must carve out from between those two levels, college sports) would anybody be willing to support if the team or individual were a purely defensive one? Though I have won using that strategy in Tic-Tac-Toe, I doubt it will work against mortal enemies.

    The purpose of war is obliteration and decimation or unconditional surrender and damn the global phony indignation. Since the indignation is only ever directed at America, how real can it be? And what can it be but jealousy? The American people don’t care, but the cowardly leaders in Chicago D.C. seem to work overtime at fearing.

    Off point? OK, but SPG started it.

  13. SignPainterGuy on December 20th, 2010 12:15 am

    I started it ?! Who, meeeee ?! Would I do that ?!

    Defensive Tic-Tac-Toe is it ? Isn`t that where the best you hope for is a draw, no winner, no loser ? I`m thinking that "at best", Assange wants no better than a draw for the US, but might even be pleased with our defeat ! Or at least being brought down a few notches ! It`s just not fair that we should be "allowed to be" the only superpower ! I`m not convinced that he believes we are battling a "mortal enemy" !

    speedstan,

    My take as well. I said from the very beginning this was about *SEX*! Not unlike Nick Leeson ( the subject of Rogue Trader" that brought down Barings Bank ) We can all think fo dozens of NPD cases to parade about.

    Thanks for salvaging an otherwise dreadful Sunday Mr. PTB! Monday's looking brighter already.

    "…..all about sex", so says the arrest warrant ! Some where I heard recently that it is "Accidental rape (sex w/o a condom)". (?) I think that is all trumped up as a excuse to have him arrested ! Perhaps that`s a real charge in Sweden, but still, it sounds all hoaky to me ! And if Sweden were in cahoots with us to catch him, wouldn`t the UK have been in on it as well ?

    Have you had a bad day, M_W ?

  17. Marshall_Will on December 20th, 2010 1:22 am

    I'm supposing the Swedes are like the Saudi's. When you ask them "Who's side are you ON!?" they just look at you like you're an idiot and say.., "We're on *OUR* 'side'! " lol

    No, I just stopped down at the office to check on a few things and in this case it was all worth it! Have a great eve folks!

    Steve,

    Checked out your site, nice "global warming" pic ! Do you know the year it was taken, it`s been a looong time since you would see 23 power lines run together like that ! AND the glass insulators ! Over 15' of "global warming" I`d say ! Poles and wires weren`t as high as they are now ! Cool, or is that "warm" ?!

  19. SignPainterGuy on December 20th, 2010 3:35 pm

    "cpl" S/B "pfc." , sorry !

    Go die, you slag…How could you say such stupid dribble.

  21. SignPainterGuy on December 21st, 2010 2:42 am

    I would imagine he takes a breath, sets his diaphram, puckers up, holds his tongue "just right" and it just COMES RIGHT OUT !

    I am also of the opinion that there`s no brain ingagement envolved !

    Of course "Meanbean" typed those words, so that makes it a mindless "digital" matter ! :-)
