A Head Of State Proves Me RightPosted: August 21, 2012
I’m not a fugitive, so I had not thought about this before. But when Julian Assange decided to hide out in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, I thought about why he’d choose that embassy. The obvious reason is that Incas are in the Embassy to protect him.
I supported my position with a story about a woman called Mama Huaca, a legendary figure in Inca lore and part of the group that founded Ecuador. Ms. Huaca was such a fierce fighter she is said to have burst the lungs of an opponent to drive off the army he was a part of. I had an idea that Mama Huaca could be in the embassy in London to protect Assange.
Today, I read that Ecuador’s president said that “I think it would be suicidal for Great Britain to enter Ecuador’s embassy.”
Yup. She’s in there. No, he didn’t say it. He didn’t have to.
It might not be a good idea to go into that Embassy
