Will Assange be "Suicided" in Prison?

Paul Craig Roberts writes:

Bob and Darin were on a panel together discussing banalities in generalities, as is the usual case. If either had said anything meaningful on the subject, the moderator would have cut him off.

Bob didn't know Darin. He was introduced as a former CIA official. Bob had heard back in those days when he was on the Congressional Budget Committee staff that Darin had once had a limited oversight position -- budget Bob seemed to remember it was -- over a black-op CIA group. When the moderator closed the panel, the two looked at one another and raised their eyebrows.  

Bob took advantage of the eyebrow connection to suggest that they have a drink. To his surprise Darin agreed.

Darin was remote and distant at first, but found the conversation to his liking as the two discussed the moderator's skill in avoiding delicate issues. In an abrupt change of subject, Bob asked Darin if the US government would assassinate Julian Assange. 

"Yes," Darin replied.

Bob followed up quickly with a question, which as he was asking it, he realized he should not be asking: "Does the CIA have an in-house assassination group or does the agency contract it out?"

Darin replied, "The CIA doesn't need to physically assassinate Assange. Washington will use the PATRIOT Act to override the First Amendment and bring a spy case against him. Currently, the British are going through their pretense that they have a rule of law, but if in the end law doesn't require that the Brits extradite Assange to Sweden, whose government will sell him to Washington, Washington will bring an extradition case based on charges that are being concocted in a grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia."

Bob asked, "You mean Assange will be tried and condemned to death?" 

"Possibly," Darin replied, " but Washington might be content with discrediting him. Washington would try him in Alexandria, Virginia, which has a high density of military contractors. If Washington concludes that the jury wouldn't convict Assange, then Assange will be "suicided' in prison."

"Is there anywhere Assange can go to escape the frame-up?"
