It is sad when lackeys turn on each other

Pepe Escobar:
"Only the terminally naive could believe that the US Justice Department did not order the Swedish government to mobilize Interpol into producing a lightning-fast arrest warrant linked to the syrupy broken condom/"sex by surprise" saga. 
All across the land of the free, the emperor has been pulling a Beijing (one may say emperors are all alike), deploying a variety of methods to actually censor the net - and TV - and dispatch the cables to digital oblivion. Some methods are worthy of the Three Stooges: the US Air Force blacking out from its computers anything linked to "cablegate"; the Pentagon banning anyone from even looking at newspapers. 
Other methods are slightly more refined. Assange won the readers' poll as Time magazine's Person of the Year. But the editors could not possibly have the guts to respect public opinion and infuriate the emperor even more. So they gave the prize to an autistic geek who invented Facebook because his girlfriend dumped him."
"WikiLeaks: Swedish government 'hid' anti-terror operations with America from Parliament":
"'The new revelations contained in the Swedish cables … shed some light on the ferocity of the Swedish prosecutorial process in this case.'"
The Swedes pretend to be neutral but are secretly rabid American imperialists.

Who ordered the appeal of Assange's bail?  The lackeys are blaming each other.
