The fever swamps at Huffington Post are at it gain. Sure, the Democratic Obama administration is prepping conspiracy charges against Wikileaks, but I think we know what shadowy American political figure is really behind the unjust persecution of Julian Assange:
"This all has Karl [Rove's] signature," a reliable political source told me a week and a half ago in encouraging our Justice Integrity Project to investigate Rove's Swedish connection. "He must be very happy. He's right back in the middle of it. He's making himself valuable to his new friends, seeing the U.S. government doing just what he'd like ? and screwing his opponents big-time."
WikiLeaks created a problem for Sweden and its prime minister, at left above, by revealing a 2008 cable disclosing that its executive branch asked American officials to keep intelligence-gathering "informal" to avoid required Parliamentary scrutiny. That secret was among the 251,000 U.S. cables obtained by WikiLeaks and relayed to the New York Times and four other media partners. They have so far reported about 1,300 of the secret cables after trying for months to vet them through U.S. authorities.
Yup, that's right. According to "reliable political sources," Karl Rove is responsible for the Swedish government's unjust persecution against modern-day Cassanova Julian Assange. It seems he's done some political consulting for Sweden's Social Democrats, so clearly Rove must be running the country's justice system by now. It all makes sense now.
