Assange Accuser Worked with US-Funded,
CIA-Tied Anti-Castro Group
By: Kirk James Murphy, M.D.

Yesterday Alexander Cockburn reminded us of the news Israel Shamir and Paul Bennett broke at Counterpunch in September. Julian Assange’s chief accuser in Sweden has a significant history of work with anti-Castro groups, at least one of which is US funded and openly supported by a former CIA agent convicted in the mass murder of seventy three Cubans on an airliner he was involved in blowing up.

  • Israel Shamir? Seriously? That guy is the ’71 Ford Pinto of journalistic integrity. Seeing as he is the reporting “journalist” I don’t believe a word of the article or the alleged “investigation.”

  • As much as Anna Ardin is working against the Castro regime, she’s at same time very hostile towards US policy against Cuba, the embargo etc. (Rightly so imo) I guess that is CIA policy as well? She’s a swedish social democrat, and as such working in a tradition which is fiercely hostile towards communism, but at the same time very critical about “US imperalism”. It’s in the tradition of the Swedish PM Olof Palme’s anti-US policy of the 60-ies and 70-ies, were they CIA-sponsored? I have personally met a US Vietnam veteran here in Sweden who was helped by Mr Palme escape from US military service during that war. Her motive for accusing Mr Assange seems very much to be what is openly stated in the charges: rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. It’s very much a question of a clash of cultures here, if you knew anything about Swedish left feminist attitudes about sexual relationship and intercourse, you wouldn’t be surprised.

  • No individual, no matter what their job or their political affiliation, has to submit to having sex without a condom against their will. Every person, no matter their job or political affiliation, has the right to report when they have been violated.

    While Sweden should have no right to extradite an individual for political reasons, using dismissed cases as the basis for the extradition hearing, it is irresponsible to blame the victim in this case for a countries actions.

    Just like i don’t blame Assange, we also should not blame the victim for the antics of the US, Swedish and British antics.
