The best bit of all this - aside from when he's rightly banged up for rape in a cell that, ironically, will probably be bigger and better equipped than where he's been for 8 years - will come when Assange, who will do ANYTHING to avoid being accountable, goes into full plea bargain mode to save his own arse.

It appears the extradition request stems from a sealed federal grand jury indictment in 2010, for conspiracy (read: encouraging) to hack a government network. He egged Manning on, basically, to get more and more data. Apparently the maximum term for this offence is five years.
