LONDON, U.K.—Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, is an unattractive character, and he also has very poor judgement. He should have gone to Sweden seven years ago and faced the rape charges brought against him by two Swedish women.

Even if he had been found guilty, he would probably be free by now under Swedish sentencing rules, since no violence was alleged in either case.
