has broken through for those confused about how a
publisher ended up in a maximum security prison in
London with a one-way extradition ticket to court in
the U.S. and the rest of his life behind bars.
One of the main German TV channels (ZDF) ran two
prime-time segments on Wednesday night exposing
authorities in Sweden for having “made up” the story
about Julian Assange being a rapist.
Until last night most Germans, as well as other
consumers of “major media” in Europe, had no idea of
the trickery that enmeshed Assange in a spider-web
almost certainly designed by the U.S. and woven by
accomplices in vassal states like Sweden, Britain
and, eventually, Ecuador.
ZDF punctured that web by interviewing UN Rapporteur
on Torture Nils Melzer. One ZDF “Heute Sendung”
(in German) is especially telling from minute 13:00
to 15:30 . The
is ZDF “Heute Journal” (minute 25:49 to 30:19.)
Both ZDF programs show Melzer being interviewed,
with minimal interruption or commentary, letting his
findings speak for themselves about how allegations
against Assange were “made up” and manipulated to
hold him captive.
The particularly scurrilous allegation that led
many, including initially Melzer, to believe Assange
was a rapist — a tried and tested smear technique of
covert action — was especially effective. The
Swedes never formally charged him with rape — or
with any crime, for that matter. ZDF exhibited some
of the documents Melzer uncovered that show the
sexual allegations were just as “invented” as the
evidence for WMD before the attack on Iraq.
Melzer had previously admitted to having been so
misled by media portrayals of Assange that he was
initially reluctant to investigate Assange’s case.
Here is what Melzer wrote last year in an op-ed
marking the International Day in Support of Torture
Victims, June 26.
