Why, I would say that the important thing to the US, both in terms of damage
control and of deterrence of such initiatives, is to get him framed, if
possible by a non-US law enforcement agency, wouldn't it?

Moreover, sex assault charges as bogus as they may be in fact and in
principle ("My consent was not free, as I was not informed at the time of
the intercourse that he was sleeping as well with my best friend...") do not
offer the kind of martyrdom amplification that espionnage charges,
kidnapping or assassination may involve; and imply as well a welcome stigma
on the target.
