- U.S. Grand Jury on WikiLeaks

The secret U.S. Grand Jury on WikiLeaks has been convened in Alexandra, Virginia, U.S.A. for over a year. It appears that they are still at the "fishing expedition" stage (yet to force immunity, take the right to remain silent away and threaten jail for supbeonaed witnesses). This pace is probably in relation to wait and see what was going to happen to Bradley Manning at his pre-trial at Ft. Meade (where the Judge was also from the same U.S. Justice Dept conducting the Grand Jury on WikiLeaks, go figure?) and what happens in London on Feb 1 & 2 to Julian Assange.

What the hell ?

Has anyone just considered the hypothesis that this man would not be a victim of a conspiracy (as the ultimate majority of men accused of rape claim it) but just simply a fucking rapist ?

Does the fact of being a man with a halo of rebel who leaked state secrets prevents him from being a rapist ?
Or is it enough that despite of such an accusation, some comrades would offer him an unconditional support (since it is what it is when the article is relayed on indymedia)?

I try to be euphemistic, but I can not hide that I am shocked by the silence of this article on the issue.

What if it were true ? Would you find it just to defend the cause of such a "great hero". Why most of our comrades don't benefit of such a support when the go to jail ? What does the ABC think about it ?

Hell... here is my contribution as an addition concerning informations : did you just know that most of the antifeminist movments (masculists, etc...) support Julian Assange and that one of the swedish women who accused him of rape is a radical feminist and the other one of his student ! Let's be very careful about who we support...
