Judge speaks up, if a bit late

Justice Stefan Lindskog, chairman of the Supreme Court of Sweden, spoke highly of Julian Assange of Wikileaks in a speech he delivered in Australia.
Lindskog praised Assange's public information campaign.

"He'll be thought of as a person who made public some pieces of classified information to the benefit of mankind," he said.

"It should never be a crime to make known (a) crime of a state," he added. 
How do ya like them apples? There's also this:
Lindskog suggested that Sweden's extradition treaty with the United States would not apply to Assange.

"Extradition shall not be granted when alleged crimes (are) military or political in nature," he said.
Things are looking up for our hero, Julian. It's about time.
