ECUADOR BACKS DOWN: FOREIGN MINISTRY SAYS IT HAS 'NO PLANS' TO EXPEL ASSANGE

As dozens of supporters massed outside its London embassy, Ecuadorian officials late Friday denied reports that they had been planning to unilaterally revoke the asylum first granted to Wikileaks founder Julian Assange in 2012, expelling the controversial journalist from their London embassy and handing him over to British police for arrest on charges that he skipped out on his bail - which would have likely set in motion a chain of events ending with Assange's extradition to the US.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a "thank God" moment, for people who value the concept that the US government has the right to lie to the American people, or anyone else; Assange is not out of the woods yet, but at least, for the moment, he is out of immediate danger.
