What of the man behind the curtain?

Julian Assange leads a life that lives like a spy novel: 'insurance' files (previously), having no home and permanently traveling from place to place. His actions are angering world powers who are beginning to demand his head.
In addition to international pressure, he has faced legal trouble. He was charged with rape in Sweden in August, but the arrest warrant was dropped a few days later. Two weeks ago, a Swedish court upheld the warrant and demanded he be questioned. He is currently on the run from Interpol, Swedish, and US authorities, and it is unclear how long he can evade arrest given increasing international pressure.
This post was deleted for the following reason: We've had a couple of pretty Assange-centric posts and the subject comes up in every wikileaks thread we have as well, so maybe just add this to the most recent thread. -- cortex
