The Lee Harvey Oswald Moment of Julian Assange approaches apace as the SAS plans to storm the Embassy and inadvertently kill him as he resists arrest. I predicted this two months ago.
If it happens it will be a stinking albatross about the neck of my friend Bob Carr for all of his notable posterity: an Australian hero guiltless of any crime gunned down in public whom he could have saved.
I urge him, as I have in private, to go to the Embassy and ask there the questions the Swedes want asked of Assange and grant him asylum here, or not.
Infamy awaits, or glory.
Seize the day.
