Julian Assange had not been arrested yet when this re-mix was finished last night. This morning he surrendered to Scotland Yard – here’s the story from AP.
CASSANDRA VINOGRAD and RAPHAEL G. SATTER | 12/ 7/10 06:56 PM |
LONDON — WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested and jailed without bail Tuesday in a sex-crimes investigation, but his organization scarcely missed a beat, releasing a new batch of the secret cables that U.S. officials say are damaging America’s security and relations worldwide.
A month after dropping out of public view, the 39-year-old Australian surrendered to Scotland Yard to answer a warrant issued for his arrest by Sweden. He is wanted for questioning after two women accused him of having sex with them without a condom and without their consent.
Assange said he would fight extradition to Sweden, setting the stage for what could be a pitched legal battle. And as if to prove that it can’t be intimidated, WikiLeaks promptly released a dozen new cables, including details of a NATO defense plan for Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania that made Russia bristle.
The Pentagon welcomed Assange’s arrest.
“That sounds like good news to me,” U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on a visit to Afghanistan.
WikiLeaks spokesman Kristinn Hrafnsson insisted Assange’s arrest and the decision Tuesday by both Visa and MasterCard to stop processing donations to the group “will not change our operation.” Hrafnsson said the organization has no plans yet to make good on its threat to release en masse some of its most sensitive U.S. documents if it comes under attack.
At a court hearing in London, Assange showed no reaction as Judge Howard Riddle denied him bail while he awaits an extradition hearing Dec. 14. The judge said Assange might flee if released. When the judge asked him whether he would agree to be extradited, Assange said: “I do not consent.”

Daddy, what did you do during the First World Infowar? As the question of whether WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange is a hero or villain moves from front page headlines to talk shows and the blogosphere, another big story is emerging.
Unlike the quickly suppressed Twitter linked student revolt in Iran in 2009 following the disputed presidential election, the move by supporters to avenge attacks on Assange has gone viral. The rapid duplication of WikiLeaks content over the past weekend from one to more than 208 mirror websites represents a global counter-force that is now worldwide. Around the globe, it has become a call to arms for a far flung team of anonymous hackers.
Taking place in cyberspace, it exposes a whole new battlefield for the US government. A “clean-tech” war, it is taking place far beyond the sand and dust of Iraq and Afghanistan which already has immobilized billions of dollars worth of the military’s engines, and electronics.
Yet this emerging Infowar is more than a multiplication of mirror websites. Operation Avenge Assange marks a power shift, an abrupt shift of power from those who hold power through secrecy, closed door diplomacy, or fear, toward those who favor transparency.
This shift to openness and transparency, declares Jeff Jarvis, author of Public Parts, and What Would Google Do?, is actually a shift from those who hold secrets to those who create openness. That is our emerging reality.
Even more real is the fact that what may be termed the world’s first Infowar has now entered the realm of online gamers. With the line between government secrecy and public transparency beginning to blur, those whose lives are plugged into the Internet are starting to feel a surge of power.
This shift of power to openness and transparency is occurring right under their fingertips, on the keyboard, and on the screen. To them, power is clarity.
“The first serious Infowar is now engaged,” warns cyberlibertarian John Perry Barlow, a founding member of the Electronic Freedom Foundation, and former lyricist for the Grateful Dead. To the anonymous hackers and others who follow him on Twitter and in blogs, he reminds: “The field of Battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops.”
