I support wikileaks and think that the rape accusations against Assange in Sweden are just threats and ways to make him stop revealing the truth. Hopefully, he won´t end up dead or missing...

Wikileaks information release just show that how governments can sometimes lie to their own people. Julian has been trying to prevent the release of his memoir. Just wonder if he is speaking the truth about himself?
