I notice today that Julian Assange is now on Interpols most wanted list. I am not here to comment on his innocence or guilt in these allegations however it does seem strange that this would come out just a few days after a large public release of previously classified State Department cables.
Coincidence? I am not so sure. Some very powerful people were embarrassed by these revelations and they would certainly have motive to see this guy discredited. This is sort of similar to what happen to Scott Ridder when he started talking about WMD's in Iraq.
