Naomi Wolf on Julian Assange's Rape Charges

The Huffington Post has this article by Naomi Wolf about how the world treats a rape victim and rape offender around the world. Here's Naomi Wolf on Julian Assange's criminal arrest for rape (In case you don't know who Naomi is, go here):

"In other words: Never in twenty-three years of reporting on and supporting victims of sexual assault around the world have I ever heard of a case of a man sought by two nations, and held in solitary confinement without bail in advance of being questioned -- for any alleged rape, even the most brutal or easily proven. In terms of a case involving the kinds of ambiguities and complexities of the alleged victims' complaints -- sex that began consensually that allegedly became non-consensual when dispute arose around a condom -- please find me, anywhere in the world, another man in prison today without bail on charges of anything comparable."

Guess two powerful nations are victimising Assange for what he has gone and done. Tut tut!
