Time Person of the Year, Julian Assange Arrested in London December 7, 2010

Posted by jefhenninger in News.

Julian Assange was arrested today, but not for anything to do with Wikileaks.  Instead, we learned that it has to do with sex charges mostly involving not wearing a condom.  Sounds strange and difficult to prove, but he’s being held without bail at the moment.  At some point, he will likely get out of these charges.  Question then is, will the US come up with a way to file charges against him?  So far, I haven’t even heard a pundit on TV give a plausible scenario as to how this could be done.  The fact that the US has been silent on this issue indicates either that there is no way to prosecute him or that they will arrest him when it seems like he will be released on the current case.  In other news, Drudge is reporting that he may be named Time’s Person of the Year.

It’s amazing how one of the highest profile arrests of the year came from something which might not be provable, but what’s even crazier is the amount of positive press he’s getting from something like this. He might never have to leak any more information to live the rest of his life in fame/infamy.

Guess that’s one way to do it.
