The truth stands alone

The news is out: [WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested on a 7-year-old warrant early Thursday at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, and is currently being held in a police station.
“Julian Assange, 47, has today, Thursday 11 April, been arrested by officers from the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) at the Embassy of Ecuador, Hans Crescent, SW1 on a warrant issued by Westminster Magistrates’ Court on 29 June 2012, for failing to surrender to the court,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement. “He has been taken into custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster Magistrates’ Court as soon as is possible.”
Assange has also “been further arrested on behalf of the United States authorities” after he arrived at the police station in central London, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.
Carlos Poveda, Assange’s lawyer in Ecuador, confirmed to ABC News that Assange had also been arrested on a U.S. extradition request. He also claimed the arrest contravened international conventions on human rights.
Assange, an Australian native, founded the website WikiLeaks in 2006 and drew attention over the next decade for releasing sensitive, and often classified, information.]
Assange exposed the truth. Justice is the finding of the truth. Exposing the truth cannot be illegal. Did Assange slander anyone? Did Assange lie? Did Assange make up libelous stories? The answer is an unequivocal NO.
The only things he could be indicted with: 1) not cleaning up after his cat, and 2) his poor personal hygiene. These are not crimes.
Very telling of the times we are living in.
