"From what I know I do not believe Assange raped those women."

What does that even mean? The actions of which he is accused would
constitute rape under both the British and Swedish legal codes (
http://www.newstatesman.com/blogs/david-allen-green/2012/08/five-legal-myths-about-assange-extradition).
I hope the author has some case, which he hasn't presented here, for
absolute innocence, as there could hardly be a less opportune week for Todd
Akin/Sparticist League-style attempts to redefine rape in the attacker's
favor.
