Turtles and rabbits chasing WikilLeaks

The Swedish prosecutor is obviously busy leaving no stone unturned in the Assange rape case, one might think she is crawling down a gravel road considering the time she has spent on this case now. Marinne Ny is proud to continue to make the Swedish judicial system appear ad hoc and unsafe.  The latest update on the official web site of the Swedish Prosecutors Office was made on September 29 with a short message that the investigation is still ongoing and at this point it is not possible to say when a decision can be made.
While Sweden is moving at the speed of the turtle the US and Australian governments are the rabbits. They have managed to speedily close WikiLeak's donor account managed by the UK firm Moneybookers.

The account was closed on August 13 as it had been put on an official US watchlist and on an Australian government blacklist. The Guardian reports that Assange got the following message from Moneybookers "Following an audit of your account by our security department, we must advise that your account has been closed … to comply with money laundering or other investigations conducted by government authorities."  Cutting off the cashflow will obviously cause big problems for WikiLeaks and this must be a much bigger concern now than the navel gazing of the Swedish authorities into the rape allegation of Assange. The WikiLeaks web site was down today for maintenance might there be problems with the internet providers again. What WikiLeak needs now is a big leak.
