Not mutually exclusive. But piss off the CIA and there's always going to be 'revelations'.

Innocent until proven guilty, in the absence of evidence.

Is it me or is that just a bit dodgy

One minute a guy is accused of rape and molestation then he's not

Mad. So, he is accused of rape and molestation, then 24hrs later the chief prosecutor says "I don't think there is reason to suspect that he has committed rape."

But forever, google searches for him will bring up 'rape' and 'molestation' charges despite having been immediately dropped. Fucked.

Don't come to conclusions to early... he's still up for two counts of molestation. But dropping the rape charge means he doesn't have to report to the Police.

A few years ago he was involved in trying to organise hundreds of women to protest in their bikinis outside a mosque in Australia - obv that isn't the same as rape or molestation, but it certainly shows he probably isn't that great when it comes to respecting women.

edit - the protest ended up being canned after it got taken over by the local fascists

I never knew he was involved in that - can you give me a link for that?

Before launching WikiLeaks in 2006, Mr Assange had a successful career writing computer programs.

He also helped his mother’s disastrous attempt to launch a so-called ‘bikini’ protest against Islamic radicals in Australia in 2006.

In interviews at the time, Mrs Assange said that bikinis were an essential part of Australian culture, adding: ‘We’re not going to cover up to avoid rape.’

But the Great Australian Bikini March was cancelled after it was hijacked by neo-Nazi groups.

The bit about Assange starts mid-way down http://www.mailonline.co.uk/news/article-1299311/FBI-question-WikiLeaks-mother-Welsh-home-Agent-interrogate-distressed-woman-search-sons-bedroom.html

sounds like he's a bit of a freedom enthusiast rather than a closet rapist (fits the profile eh?). whats wrong with a bikini protest in favor of womens freedom of there bodies? organised by his mum, a woman, against anti-women religious nutters.

Anyway he's just the frontman. They took a gamble when they went from faceless to hyped personality cult organisation and are now (perhaps) paying the price.

From my point of view there is no need to *trust* Assange or Wikileaks, they should just release verifiable documents.
