I quote a few tidbits from the article:
"Informal discussions have Already ceilings placed between U.S. and Swedish Officials over the Possibility of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange being delivered into American custody, According To diplomatic sources ..."The question is which "Swedish Officials" were involved, directly or indirectly? Cecilia Malmström, leaving the Swedish government as Minister for EU Affairs in January 2010 to become a European Commissioner. Could it have been Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, Justice Minister Beatrice Ask, Cecilia's successor as Minister for EU Affairs Birgitta Ohlsson, or any of their Secretary of State?
"His arrest in north London yesterday was Described by the U.S. Defence Secretary Robert Gates as" good news ", and may pave the way for extradition to America and a Possible lengthy jail sentence ..."Something denied fervently by both Cecila Malmström, Carl Bildt and Marten Schulz tex.
"The U.S. Justice Department is considering charging Mr Assange with espionage offences over his website's unprecedented release of classified U.S. diplomatic files ..."It was in December 2010. Now we know that there is a sealed indictment by the Grand Jury in Virginia.
"Sources stressed That no extradition request would be Submitted Until and Unless the U.S. government laid charges against Mr Assange, and That Attempts to take him to America would only take place after legal proceedings are concluded in Sweden ..."Which is what we said in the thread for a long time now. U.S. waits for the Swedish legal process. Then turn it onto.
My hypothesis is that the talks between Swedish and U.S. "Top Officials", in November / December 2010, consisted of a discussion of how the U.S. request to send him from Sweden would be handled, including interpretations of the law. It is not unreasonable to also discussed how public opinion could be influenced by appropriate media strategy. We remember what happened the week after December 9 in the Swedish media.
