Just got an email from CNBC that says that Assange is in jail in the UK for 52 weeks or so for skipping bail.

Convenient for the UK.

A year in jail for skipping bail in a case where he is probably innocent in the first place. If this sticks, it is a black eye for the UK "justice" system.

This whole situation is a symptom of what happens when the National Security State comes out of the closet and rears it's head. Maybe, to some people, this Assange situation is solid, sound and justified. To me it looks like a circus that not even Stephen King or George Orwell could conjure up in their imaginations.

Fact is often more strange than fiction.
