It's not been a good time in recent months for Wikileaks founder Julian Assange after the publication of a series of secret documents about the war in Afghanistan that's had the Pentagon up in arms.  Now Swedish authorities have issued an arrest warrant on accusations of rape and molestation.

The warrant, which was issued on Friday, comes with no details but Assange, in a message on Twitter, said the accusations were "without basis", "deeply disturbing" and that he had been warned to expect "dirty tricks".

Saying that nobody at Wikileaks had been contacted by the Swedish police, it asks the question of whether the accusations are genuine or if there might not be the hand of the Pentagon stirring things up!?

Despite this, Assange has said that in addition to the 75,000 secret military documents Wikileaks has already published, they will be publishing another 15,000 in the coming weeks.

Assange was in Sweden last week to talk about Wikileaks and to defend his decision to publish the secret Afghanistan documents.

Update: It still has not been decided if Julian Assange will be extradited to Sweden. The final appeal hearing takes place today at London's High Court. Depending on the outcome of that hearing, the request may be denied or granted. If the ruling goes against Julian Assange, he will face extradition to Sweden within 10 days.

Swedish authorities want to question Mr. Assange over sex crime allegations made by two Swedish women that he denies.

    Lavely and Singer is up to their old tricks.

    Stef Willen, Mathilde Notaro, and Jaqueline Kashian are the one’s making the false accusation, to my knowledge.

    My reckoning is that they wan’t a reason to get him inside because of his website.

    I’d bet Lavely and Singer is behind this and that aspiring actress, Stef Willen, and aspiring comedian, Mathilde Notaro, is behind this.

    This is classic Lavely and Singer. Tig Notaro, an unknown comedian, is most probably the woman making the fake accusations.

    If I were him, I’d check the brakes of any car I was driving. Make sure they work.

    Assange no longer wanted

    Chief prosector Eva Finné has come to the desicion that Julian Assange is not suspected of rape. Considering that, Assange is no longer arrested in his absence.

    Eva Finné will make no other comments during Saturday night.

    In a series of other messages posted on the Wikileaks Twitter feed, the whistle-blowing website said: “No-one here has been contacted by Swedish police”, and that it had been warned to expect “dirty tricks”.

    Sat, 21 Aug 2010 10:21:04 wikileaks: Julian Assange: the charges are without basis and their issue at this moment is deeply disturbing.

    It won’t be the U.S. government that will nail him. The U.S. has again been sissified by liberal left already. Nope. It’ll be angry muslims. The angry muslims whose families this dingdong puts to the death. And we all know what angry muslims does best.

    Hard to know the truth when not directly involved. But I have to admit I’ll be joining the millions who find this suspiciously convenient and suspect the guiding hand of the Fourth Reich in there somewhere…

    After the recent “leaks”/ publishing from the mistakes the U.S.A. army (what that the U.S.A. did there and also that the not protected it much better) is much more likely that the same “fair/honest/ well-respected/very honorable” U.S.A. convergent and all his branches like the army/ F.B.I. /C.I.A./ etc.again have make the hole store up. Like the almost every time do.
