Taken with the fact that in March, prosecutor Marianne Ny quit or was forced out and replaced by another prosecutor, even as Anna Ardin (who Justice Lindskog refers to by name) fired her lawyer, Justice Lindskog’s remarks are yet another indication that the case against Assange may be falling apart. It may well be that the Swedish authorities are seeing if they can make this embarrassing case go away without causing more of a furor.


“Mature” Responses to Wikileaks Continue: CIA Launches WTF, BofA Buys Sucky Domain Names

Greg Miller of the Washington Post informs us Wednesday morning that the “CIA has launched a task force to assess the impact of the exposure of thousands of U.S. diplomatic cables and military files by WikiLeaks”. The group is officially called the Wikileaks Task Force, but, as Miller informs us, “it’s mainly known by its all-too-apt acronym: WTF”. In a similar vein, we learn that Bank of America also is preparing its mature response to indications that it is to be the next target of Wikileaks. BofA’s response is to buy “hundreds of abusive domain names for its senior executives and board members”.
