Julian Assange's Misrule of Law
Ana Palacio, Project Syndicate
Assange's rejection of extradition to Sweden for questioning on allegations of sexual assault is based on the supposed interference in the case by the United States. But no such interference has materialized in any way, shape, or form. So, while Ecuador waves the banner of anti-colonialism against Britain, the bottom line is that Assange, Garzon, and Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa are simply playing the old "blame America" card to evade a properly issued European Arrest Warrant (EAW), upheld by the United Kingdom's Supreme Court.
