19. Which is fine, because he hasn't been formally charged with anything.

As far as your excerpted quote...the Swedish prosecutor in question clearly indicates all they need is permission of the "British authorities" in order to question Assange at the embassy.

So are the Brits holding things up? I doubt it. More bullshit. The Swedish government has more than enough options at their disposal to interview him...if they want. But they don't. They want him to be extradited to Sweden so they can extradite him to the United States. Again, from your own quoted excerpt, they don't need to interview him over a telephone or video link. The Ecuadorian embassy and Assange said they would more than welcome an interview in person either by Swedish investigators or someone acting on their behalf.

The Swedish government rejected the offer. Because the whole thing is a ruse. The UK, the US know it. The Swedish government knows it. The OAS knows it, Russia knows it. I dare say there is no country on Earth who doesn't know what's going on.

And, of course, everyone reading this thread knows it, too. You know it too, but you're playing a little game to pretend you don't.

If it were convincing on some level I could see keeping up the act but...
