The Julian Assange rape case

There are two aspects to the Julian Assange rape case.  One is his actual guilt or innocence.  On that I think all reasonable people have to reserve judgment.  The other is whether the case was exploited for political purposes.  On that I think the evidence is clear.

For Aaron Bady’s well-reasoned argument for withholding judgment on guilt or innocence, click on If You’ll Pardon the Presumption.

For Nate Silver’s well-reasoned analysis of the political motivations behind the handling of the case, click on A Bayesian Take on Julian Assange.
