Not long after their first contact with police, the two women at the center of these accusations retained a top Swedish attorney, Claes Borgstrom. According to unnamed sources on a site we can not locate at the moment, Attorney Brogstrom began calling and questioning the status of the investigation just as the police were hoping to bury it. If this rumor proves to be true, then at some point- both women allegedly decided (or someone made a phone call) to elevate the playing field against Mr. Assange.

We are curious as to how a former political secretary for the Brotherhood Movement of the Swedish Christian Social Democrats managed to retain one of the most powerful attorneys in Sweden. Is it a coincidence that his partner is the former Justice Minister and prosecutors are descending like hungry wolves on their prey, Julian Assange?
Imagine if this were one of us. Imagine getting caught up in an similar event. The whole thing begins to snowball on us. Uh oh, I think we need to get an attorney. This is becoming much bigger than we are. Who should we call? Should we try former U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno or former U.S. Attorney Alberto Gonzalez? No, we wouldn't even think of trying that. Besides, we know that we wouldn't get past the first secretary at the front counter. Someone would have to make the call, someone in the know, someone who found us first, was referred to us, was led to us . Now, who would do that dirty job?
In the meantime, Some bloggers have claimed that the lack of any relevant online information on Sofia Wilen is due to a complete professional cleaning of all information, possibly by her friend, U.S. citizen Seth Bensen.

Wilen is underground, Ardin is playfully tweeting and blogging from her new home on the West Bank-Yanoun, Palestine, where she is working with her Christian Socialist Democratic brethren. (We stand corrected. Paparazzi will never travel there. Smart girl, good hide-out.) She was @ananymos on twitter for awhile but recently changed her name back to @therealardin. All is well in Palestine.
This past Sunday, Mr. Assange was labeled a "high-tech terrorist" by Vice President Joseph Biden. Whatever happened to that transparent government we elected? Say it ain't so, Joe! The unfolding of this story continues to amaze as much as the diplomatic cables themselves, one day at a time, one country at a time.
