    I can’t even begin to imagine what Julian Assange might be feeling right now. He has the Sword of Damacles hanging over his head. And of course his wife and children.

    We can only hope that someone has told the demented fool in the White House that if they proceed with the extradition it will have a big impact on his already dwindling re-election chances.

      Thanks WillD for raising the issue of Julian, Stella and their
      children as a family soon to be separated and worse.
      You raise the challenge to America’s evangelical Protestants and
      Catholics to organize in Virginia and swamp the CIA and US
      politicized judiciary with protest, demanding respect for the family values
      they espouse–or be found out for the hypocrites they are.

    I’m glad Mr. Hrafnsson said the word “Façade”. It is surely an artificial and deceptive front the british courts are displaying. American Poodles to the end.
