Wikileaks irony?

Is it just me, or is there something quaintly ironic about the fact that when the Swedish prosecutor first issued an arrest warrant for Julian Assange in August (yes the rape allegation is not new news), it got slammed for making the arrest warrant public?

It's probably worth noting, that the day after issuing it they revoked it, dropped the charge of rape and then carried on investigating and issued it publicly again some time later.

Whether of course this is the evil smearing work of dark forces as conspiracy loving loons like John Pilger would have you believe; or whether Assange really is a bit ff a perv remains to be seen.

Feel free to read/translate the various statements from Sweden's official prosecutor here.
