Palin's comment, posted on her facebook page, was more of a dig at President Obama than at Assange, but the latter will take action against Palin, should she travel to Australia, Assange's home country:
Robert Stary, Assange’s Melbourne-based lawyer, in an interview published by National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, stated:
“Our main concern is really the possible extradition to the US,” he said. “We’ve been troubled by the sort of rhetoric that has come out of various commentators and principally Republican politicians — Sarah Palin and the like — saying Mr. Assange should be executed, assassinated.”There have been no announcements of pending travel to Australia emanating from the Wasilla or Arizona Palin cult compounds. Only of probable late winter or early spring travel to Israel and to the U.K.
Stary added: “Certainly if Sarah Palin or any of those other politicians come to Australia, for whatever purpose, then we can initiate a private prosecution, and that’s what we intend to do.”
