Of course, Wikileaks won't disappear just because he's in jail. :)

Assange claims he lost tooth, was housed with child killers in prison

Assange: Prosecutors 'are going to lose'

WikiLeaks founder says he has enough material to make major US bank head resign

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he spent his prison time housed with "child killers" and lost a tooth while in custody.

“There were crazy pedophiles who shouted all night about their crimes," Assange told the Spanish newspaper El Pais. "You heard these cries all night.”

Assange said he lost a tooth when he bit into a piece of metal on his food plate. He said he didn't know "if it was put there or if it was a simple accident," according to a translation at the Telegraph.

"It will soon be for sale on eBay," he joked.

The tooth disappeared from his cell shortly thereafter, Assange said. "I suppose [it was taken] because they didn't want any kind of evidence that such an episode had occurred," he added.

The 39-year-old Assange also said police were so concerned that he would be assassinated after being freed on bail that they cut short a press conference on the courthouse steps after four minutes.

“I receive death threats all the time," he said. "My lawyer receives them, my [20-year-old] son [Daniel] receives them. ... Most of them seem to come from members of the United States armed forces."

ASSANGE: PROSECUTORS 'WILL LOSE'

The founder of WikiLeaks had tough words Monday for US prosecutors mulling espionage-related charges against him.

"No doubt, some prosecutors [are] seeking to gain their bit of fame and reputation by taking us on, but they're going to lose," Assange told CBS News' Katie Couric.

According to news reports, federal prosecutors are investigating the possibility of charging Assange with conspiracy to steal classified material. To make a case, they would have to prove that Assange aided the alleged source of WikiLeaks' State Department cables -- PFC Bradley Manning -- before Manning allegedly took them.

On CBS Monday, Assange denied having any contact with Manning and asserted that the first he ever heard of him was when Wired published online chats between Manning and hacker Adrian Lamo, who turned Manning in. In those chats, Manning allegedly boasts of knowing Assange.

"We never heard the name of Bradley Manning before," Assange said. "But it ... it's interesting you're raising that particular question, because it's something that appears to be coming out of attempts to conflate media activities with espionage. That's a serious business."

ASSANGE: ENOUGH MATERIAL TO TAKE DOWN CEO OF MAJOR US BANK

Assange is expected to tell a Times of London interviewer that WikiLeaks has enough documentation on a major US bank to force the institution's leadership to resign.

According to a Tweet from the Times' Alexi Mostrous, Assange claims to have "enough material to make bosses of a major US bank resign."

Speculation has abounded for weeks that WikiLeaks' next target may be a major US financial institution, on which the secrets site has reportedly obtained five gigabytes' worth of data.

Though it hasn't been confirmed, many believe that the bank in question is Bank of America, which last weekend blocked payments to WikiLeaks.

Ooh, ooh, do the bank one next, Julian! That'll be fun.

It should be noted in this thread that none other than Michael Moore ponied up for Assange's bail. That should generate some interesting comments due the wide variety of his popularity.

The vitriol directed toward Assange by right wingers in America is interesting considering that many are the same individuals who jumped on the teabagger bandwagon to talk up their anti-government & personal rights and wide-eyed conspiracy theories. Assange should be their hero. He's about as anti-government and pro-freedoms as one can get. So were those people being cynically insincere last summer or are they just jumping on the "Lynch Julian Assange Bandwagon"?

It shouldn't be a surprise, I suppose, considering they've defined themselves by what they are against, not what they are for.

*bump*

A British court on Thursday ordered Julian Assange, the
founder of WikiLeaks, to be extradited to Sweden where he is
accused of sexually abusing two women last year.

Mr. Assange must be pretty happy about the small role his leaked cables played in the popular toppling of dictators recently.
Obviously local conditions are a much, much greater factor, but there was some unpleasant stuff about the guy in Tunisia in there to add to the laundry list of grievances the revolution had.
