Swedish prosecutors withdrew an arrest warrant for the founder of WikiLeaks on Saturday, saying less than a day after the document was issued that it was based on an unfounded accusation of rape.

The accusation had been labeled a dirty trick by Julian Assange and his group, who are preparing to release a fresh batch of classified U.S. documents from the Afghan war.

  1. Before the attacks on Wikileaks, I was undecided on the Afghanistan war. Now, I see what the war is doing to freedom and democracy in this country. It just isn’t worth it.

  2. I dream that one of the so-called White House press corps has the backbone to question Obama on this piece of viciousness.
