The title says it all: the rape charge against Assange has been formally dropped, and the other charge is not a sexual offence – he’s been charged with “molestation” which covers “inappropriate” or unruly behaviour that is not sexual in nature.
Of course it wasn’t a complete surprise that Assange was arrested for something. He is a major pain in the ass for the US, and for Sweden he is a big political embarrassment. So they make him into a monster then say all he does is monstrous too. “Ad hominem” I think the term is: attack him personally because they can’t fight his assistance of whistleblowers.
