UK Police Pull Assange Embassy Guards

I guess the UK government is sick of spending more than $16,000 a day on trying to arrest Assange so they are moving on to more "overt and covert tactics." Snipers and ninjas?

In a statement issued today, the Metropolitan Police said that "it is no longer proportionate to commit officers to a permanent presence" outside the embassy. After discussions with the Home Office and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, it will "deploy a number of overt and covert tactics" instead of continuing its very visual approach.
