(Reuters) - Despite claims by Julian Assange that Washington is plotting to extradite and execute him, U.S. and European government sources say the United States has issued no criminal charges against the WikiLeaks founder and has launched no attempt to extradite him.

Moreover, Obama administration officials remain divided over the wisdom of prosecuting Assange, the sources said, and the likelihood of U.S. criminal charges against him is probably receding rather than growing.

The Obama administration has said Assange's immediate fate is in the hands of Britain, Sweden and Ecuador.
I think this is embarrassing to the US. Assange should be prosecuted to the fullest extent. Sheesh.
