Freed from a London prison, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now says he was set up in the Swedish sexual assault case and claims that the publication of over a quarter-million classified U.S. diplomatic cables was "a step forward."http://abcnews.go.com/International/assange-speaks-sex-charges-tabloid-crap/story?id=12420465&tqkw=&tqshow=WN
"[I am] clearly the victim of a smear campaign," Assange told "Good Morning America" today. "There are intercepted SMS messages between the women and each other and their friends that I am told represent a set-up."
It's funny that a man famous for releasing stolen, confidential and unverified diplomatic emails and cables containing raw data and gossip is complaining that's he's the victim of smears and innuendo. Now he knows how his victims feel.
