Review of what’s happening
: Julian Assange, an Australian citizen and a key player in the Wikileaks project, helped to publish previously confidential e-mails that embarrassed the United States military. While Assange was at the focus of political controversy, two women accused him sexual crimes, for which Sweden says he must answer. Assange, appearing suspicious of the timing of the charges and worried that it is a trick to get him deported to the US, is resisting extradition to Sweden. Assange is in England. The English Supreme Court ruled against him, and has set a date to deport him to Sweden. Assange fled to the embassy for Ecuador in London. CNN reports that Assange is probably still inside the embassy, awaiting an answer about if they will grant him political assylum.
