Julian Assange (WikiLeaks) - Where do I stand with him now?
I'm confused right now. As an Aussie who champions openness and fair play, I've been eagerly awaiting clearance of Assange's name in Sweden so that I can finally rally solidly behind him - but his massive ego still keeps getting in the way. He doesn't seem to like taking advice, even from confidantes trying to protect him from himself. The journo Heather Brooke accuses him of having some kind of Messiah complex, but it seems to me she might have an axe to grind (frustrated guilt?). The Royal Courts of Justice aren't the only ones still reserving judgment, Julian.
