Assange lawyer threatens Palin legal action
Robert Stary, Julain Assange's Australian lawyer, fears for his employer's safety:
We've been troubled by the sort of rhetoric that has come out of various commentators and principally Republican politicians — Sarah Palin and the like — saying Mr. Assange should be executed, assassinated.Legal action is a distinct possibility:
Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that's what we intend to do.So what exactly did Palin threaten?
On her Facebook page, Palin suggests that Assange should be "pursued with the same urgency as al-Qaida and Taliban leaders."Considering that Palin is almost single-handedly responsible for the rising tide of American violence that veiled threat cannot be taken lightly.
