I think the two sniggering articles you linked to say rather more about Assange and his defenders. It is uncontroversial that Russia is a practically a kleptocracy with tight control over the Russian press and other major institutions.
Sorry?! Are we speaking about the same Assange who had to be taken to task by Stephen Colbert about his titling and editing of "Collateral Murder" and who then admitted that:
"Governments are elected based on what people know about the politicians, or what they would know about their government does. If we don't know what the government's doing, we can't be sad about it. Why are you trying to make me sad?
Cause you are, you're trying to bum us out about the world, aren't you? All these terrible things happen behind closed doors, and you've decided that I need to know about it"
"What is the purpose of letting the audience, what is the purpose of letting the public know? It's like you're saying it's better to know, then not know. Have you not heard, Ignorance is Bliss? This Footage puts a face on war that says people get killed!"
I haven't seen the interview, so I don't know whether this is the case or not, but there's no way that a BBC reporter like Jeremy Paxman or John Humphreys would interview someone like Nasrallah *without* pressing him on an issue like why he screens a series on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, and whether he happens to believe that it portrays an accurate historical document.
A representative of Wikileaks responded, ‘We have no further reports on this “rumour/issue”. Another Wikileaks representative told Index “obviously it is not approved”.
The appellant [Assange]'s physical advances were initially welcomed but then it felt awkward since he was "rough and impatient" … They lay down in bed. AA was lying on her back and Assange was on top of her … AA felt that Assange wanted to insert his penis into her vagina directly, which she did not want since he was not wearing a condom … She did not articulate this. Instead she therefore tried to turn her hips and squeeze her legs together in order to avoid a penetration … AA tried several times to reach for a condom, which Assange had stopped her from doing by holding her arms and bending her legs open and trying to penetrate her with his penis without using a condom. AA says that she felt about to cry since she was held down and could not reach a condom and felt this could end badly.
after a while Assange asked what AA was doing and why she was squeezing her legs together. AA told him that she wanted him to put a condom on before he entered her. Assange let go of AA's arms and put on a condom which AA found her.
"..crucially, Emmerson said, there was no lack of consent sufficient for the unlawful coercion allegation, because "after a while Assange asked what AA was doing and why she was squeezing her legs together. AA told him that she wanted him to put a condom on before he entered her. Assange let go of AA's arms and put on a condom which AA found her."
A boy and a girl run around on the grass at the park. The boy tackles the girl. The girl laughs. She gets up and runs away. She loves to run. He chases, she turns and they grab eachother, tumble and land in a pile, giggling. After a few minutes, he tackles her again and she lands a bit hard. She is bigger and physical, but he more than holds his own in roughhousing. She pauses for a second. Then she laughs again; she’s still having fun.
Dad gets his attention, and says, “If she’s not having fun, you have to stop.”
..told him that she wanted him to put a condom on before he entered her. Assange let go of AA's arms and put on a condom..
