Julian Assange and the British-Ecuadorian Standoff

Hosted by

Julian Assange of WikiLeaks fame has been holed up in Ecuador's London embassy. Diplomatic principle and British law say a foreign embassy is equivalent to the soil of another country. Ecuador says Britain is threatening to break the rules. Britain wants to send Assange to Sweden, and Assange fears that could mean extradition to the United States. We update the stalemate with John Burns, London Bureau Chief for the New York Times and Charles Crawford, former British ambassador to Sarajevo, Belgrade and Warsaw.
