Some Doubt Intent of Accusations Against WikiLeaks Founder

Some Doubt Intent of Accusations Against WikiLeaks Founder 24 Aug 2010 Although Swedish prosecutors have yet to complete their review of sexual abuse accusations that two Stockholm women made last week against Julian Assange, founder of the WikiLeaks Web site, those who say they have detailed knowledge of the case discount conspiracy theories linking it to efforts to discredit WikiLeaks.

The killers who own and operate the deadly salmonella-laden egg farms will be deciding whether or not to repair our roads. This is *nuts.* --LRP]
