Julian Assange has been arrested at the Embassy of Ecuador today.

http://news.met.police.uk.../arrest-update-sw1-365526

Well, I guess he outstayed his welcome at the Ecuadoran Embassy?

He appearantly wanted to leak something about the current Ecuadorian president. There's the saying in German: Don't bite the hands that feeds you.

That applies for him too.

He didn't leak anything about President Moreno. What he was accused of leaking was already top news in the Ecuadorian press, Wikileaks just re-tweeted an article about President Moreno's current troubles.   

This arrest sets a bad precedent for political asylum cases in the future.

 Star  That is an interesting thought and I bet nobody has the foresight to even see this!

And of course the US arranged a nice debt-relief package for Ecuador with the IMF right after he left the embassy...

The arrest of Julian Assange has exposed the myth of conscientious and bold journalism in the free world.

Would you say the same about governments spying on their citizens that they should all be in prison for illegal activity? He is a journalist who has been approached by whistle-blowers to expose the crimes of their governments. That is exactly why he's being hunted down. A journalist is not someone who publishes White House leaks to further his career (which is what many have successfully done) but someone who provides a space to all members of society that have witnessed crimes being committed by their political elite to come forward and expose them. Jailing him instead of those he exposed shows how broken the fourth pillar of democracy is in the free world.

If he is sent to Sweden to face the charges of rape, then yes.
But should he be sent to the US there is no criminal case other than hacking and whistle-blowing or as the charges may read: Treason.
Then of course we can argue whether  it is treason to call out corruption in your country..

He cannot be charged for treason in the USA as he is not a citizen.

It is most likely that when they get him to the USA additional charges will be tacked on to the current hacking charge.

Whatever we think of this man personally what is happening right now is not justice, it is the international security and military establishment led by the US getting revenge on the man who showed them for what they are.   

But the most frightening thing is not this case but the next case.  When the next whistle-blower who isn't as well known or a dissident is fleeing persecution and can easily be dragged back to face certain death or torture in their home country now that this case has paved the way.
