WikiLeaks watch: Where in the world is Julian Assange?

Update: December 7, 7:41 a.m.

Julian Assange turned himself into the London police after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

December 2, 1:45 p.m.

Someone tweeted yesterday that they saw him in Manhattan. Ecuador was rumored to have offered him asylum. He teleconferenced from Jordan recently.

WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange has become our modern-day Carmen San Diego. Without the game show.

We've started a Google Map with Julian Assange hot spots throughout the globe. It's likely the list will grow. Or not. The Swedish Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Assange must appear before a magistrate in Stockholm to answer accusations of rape and sexual harassment brought by two Swedish women. And Interpol has added him to its most wanted list.

Read more about it here and keep track of our ongoing coverage of everything Wiki here.

Bonus question: Who would play Julian Assange in the WikiLeaks movie? Our pick:

Bill Maher (Alberto Tolot) and Julian Assange (Andrew Winning/Reuters)

Style also nominates Paul Bettany and John Cameron Mitchell.

And, rather brilliantly, someone created a preview for the movie "The Social Leak" the Wikileaks moving (with a heavy helping of "The Social Network."

WikiLeaks who gains? Clearly those charlatans masqueradi¬ng as statesmen and the clowns dressed as legislator¬s in the Washington Circus would want to put the boots to those who exposed them. Although the WikiLeaks contained little that was new about our mistrusted misleaders¬. They did ruffle a few feathers, bruised egos and might even undermine career prospects for the mentioned bureaurats and politician¬s. Leaks weren't news, who didn’t know that Italian was a philanderi¬ng buffoon, the Afghanista¬n crowd rivals the South Vietnamese Govt in corruption and various venalities¬, or we are in the process of delivering to Pakistan the same largess we gave to Cambodia? Of course Putin rose from the bloody cellars of the Lubyanka and remains murderous. For those whose trust in the honesty of the Saudi Arabians was shattered by the Leaks, it would be best to keep in mind the words of Geo W, “You can’t break an omelet if you’re going to be critical of eggs.” Aside from reducing catty remarks, the Leaks will have no consequenc¬e that is discernabl¬e in 6 months, except for one thing. They do provide a great opportunit¬y for those in public disservice¬, those enemies of transparen¬cy who wish to CYA. These folks will benefit from new laws that will further shield either their incompeten¬ce or corruption and in some cases both.

It took one brave Australian man to slap Americans and wake them up from their fake and phony information world and US Government brainwashing and mind control media.

Thank you Julian. God bless you mate!

WikiLeaks is a battle and not the war. Fought over information, it’s an ageless war between those with power and those without. Clearly those charlatans masquerading as statesmen and the clowns dressed as legislators in the Washington Circus would dearly love to put the boots to those who expose them. Although WikiLeaks took the news media by storm, they contained little new about our widely mistrusted misleaders and the damage was limited to some ruffled feathers and bruised egos. The Leaks weren’t news after all, for who didn’t know that that Italian is a philandering buffoon, that the Afghanistan crowd we’re running with rivals the South Vietnamese in corruption and various venalities, or that we are in the process of extending to Pakistan the same largess we gave to Cambodia? Of course Putin rose to world prominence from the bloody cellars of the Lubanka and remains murderous to this day. Nothing new there and for those whose trust in the honesty of the Saudi Arabia was shattered, well not much can be done for those folks. Aside from reducing catty remarks in diplomatic cocktail parties, the Leaks will have no discernable consequence in 6 months; except for one thing. They do provide a great service to those in public disservice who wish to CYA. It is the monkeys in the Washington Circus who will benefit from the Leaks by way of new laws to shield their incompetence, corruption or in some cases both. The public loses another battle in the war for the information it needs to monitor and govern the Republic.
