WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on international most-wanted list for sex crimes

Jullian Assange

Interpol has placed WikiLeaks founder and International Man of Mystery Julian Assange on its most-wanted list. The move is unrelated to his organization's pot-stirring releases of government documents, instead stemming from an ongoing rape investigation in Sweden.

Unless, in a strange twist, the allegations of "rape, sexual molestation, and unlawful coercion" that Sweden's lobbing at Assange are somehow tied to WikiLeaks, in which case his life would officially move into James Bond-villain territory.

Assange has said before that any sexual encounters he might have had with the Swedes involved in the charges were consensual, but it's kind of hard to trust a guy whose whereabouts are unknown, so there's no telling what's what here. Anyway, if you happen see Julian Assange mulling about, be sure to let him know that some people out there want to ask him a few questions.
