WikiLeaks: Julian Assange could face 'grave consequences'

WikiLeaks: Julian Assange could face 'grave consequences' 28 Nov 2010 Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has been rebuffed by the US government after he sought information "regarding individuals who may be 'at significant risk of harm'" because of" his release of classified documents. His unusual move to open an 11th-hour dialogue about the documents came after a Swedish appeals court last week upheld an arrest warrant on rape charges for Mr Assange, validating an international warrant... His approach to the State Department, in a letter co-signed by his lawyer Jennifer Robinson, suggested that Mr Assange might be feeling under growing pressure after the Swedish court decision and the US government accused him of endangering lives.
