Julian Gets A Red Notice

Of course, it’s a warrant for sex crimes in Sweden and has nothing to do with WikiLeaks. But hey, whatever gets him in custody. He’s going to have to try and stay in hiding from now on and his international travel globetrotting days are pretty much over.

Interpol Issues Arrest Warrant for WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange

Interpol has placed the Australian-born founder of WikiLeaks on its most-wanted list after Sweden issued an arrest warrant against him as part of a drawn-out rape investigation.

The Lyon, France-based international police organization has issued a “red notice” for 39-year old Julian Assange — the equivalent of putting him on its most wanted list.

The issuance by Interpol was expected after a Swedish court in mid-November approved a motion to have Assange brought in for questioning. The notice, posted on Interpol’s site Tuesday, is likely to make international travel more difficult for him.

Assange, whose whereabouts are unknown, is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. He has denied the allegations, which stem from his encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden in August.

Well, at least someone’s trying to arrest Assange for something. Thank you Sweden. The Obama administration sure doesn’t seem like they’re too anxious to bring him to justice for what is obviously damaging espionage against the United States. If and when Assange is captured and extradited to Sweden on the sex charges, maybe by then Holder’s Justice department will have gotten its act together and maybe we can charge him with a crime, if it’s not too much bother, for leaking hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. documents, and then try and extradite him from Sweden. The important first step is to get him in custody somewhere and worry about the legal wrangling later.

All Your Iranian Nuclear Scientists Are Belong To US

What’s the matter Mahmoud, did you lose some nuclear scientists? Bummer, little dude.

Where did two Iran nuclear scientists disappear to?

Two Iranian nuclear scientists disappeared over the past weeks and allegedly defected to the West, the London-based pan-Arabic daily Asharq al-Awsat reported.

According to the report, the first defector is Sharam Amiri, a scientist in Iran’s nuclear program who was likely tied to the recently discovered secret uranium enrichment plant near the holy city of Qom.

Amiri disappeared in Saudi Arabia in July while he was on the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca.

Defection speculations have been gaining popularity in light of an announcement made by Iran’s foreign ministry that it had asked Saudi officials to help locate Amiri. This announcement is unusual because many Iranians go missing during the annual hajj pilgrimage, and in those cases, not only is there no foreign ministry announcement, usually there is no effort made to locate them, despite their families’ pleas.

The foreign ministry announcement indicates that Amiri may have a particularly sensitive position in the Iranian nuclear program.

The report regarding the second scientist is also strange. Asharq al-Awsat uses only his surname – Ardebili. He was allegedly arrested in Georgia a few weeks ago. Reports say that Ardebili worked in the Iranian nuclear program as well, but the Iranian foreign ministry fervently denies these claims, and maintains that Ardebili was a businessman who was extradited to the U.S. following his arrest.

If the report is correct and two scientists from Iran’s nuclear program indeed defected, it would be a harsh blow to Iran and its nuclear plans on the one hand, and a triumph on the part of Western intelligence on the other.
