- A British court ruled on Thursday that Julian Assange is an international INTERPOL Amber Alert Threat and must be extradited to Sweden immediately, so that he doesn’t miss his connecting flight to Bagram. (How many hours of “hanging on a meat hook” will it take before Julian confesses that he is Un-American, just like Scotland Yard sleuth “Sarah Palin” hypothesized, on the Twitter?) Julian is “not concerned about the United States” or being FedExed to Gitmo, according to a former Wikileaks colleague, but he is “very scared of going to prison in Sweden.” We’ll just have to wait and see what the teevee pundits say will happen!

Numerous other government crackdowns have been reported throughout the country, and most of them have been very violent and terrible. [AP/NYT]
