Skip to comments.WikiLeaks founder uploads mystery file (WikiLeak Blackmails US and Blames US for Dead Informants)
Posted on 08/01/2010 2:55:37 AM PDT by tlb
Julian Assange has uploaded a file called insurance to the website and elsewhere. The file is 1.4 gigabytes, a thousand times larger than the recently leaked documents.
It is estimated that even the fastest computer would take millions of years to decrypt the file.
It is believed that Assange may have distributed the pass key to supporters, who could release it to the public.
The contents of the file are unknown. However, the recent release of documents, detailing the coalitions experiences in Afghanistan, are not part of the 500,000 documents from Iraq, alleged to have been sent to WikLeaks by Bradley Manning.
Admiral. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that Assange and WikiLeaks may already have on their hands the blood of some young soldier or that of an Afghan family.
An angry Assange responded by asking Why is the Pentagon focusing on the hypothetical blood on our hands, which has never been proved, rather than the real blood of the 20,000 deaths revealed in the documents?
The top whistle blower, also criticized the US for sloppy and unprofessional security. WikiLeaks only uses code names internally for sources. Assange criticised the accessibility of the documents, saying, the information, including names of informants, was available to every member of the U.S. military and every U.S. contractor not just in Afghanistan but all over the world. The military has acted in a disgraceful and careless way.
Assange told reporters that he has plenty more material to be published, including very significant information on the BP oil spill and abuses in the US military, including sexual abuse.
In the meantime, the mystery file is being downloaded by many people, waiting for the key.

Possible bluff, but it's not like anybody in this administration will call him on it. Further even without the "insurance" I saw nothing to make me think anybody would move against him regardless.
Apparently though he has been stung by those who say he is getting Afghani informants killed.
How could a 22-year old get TS clearance??? and why was the data that he processed not compartmentalized?
Meanwhile, the Taliban appears to be carefully combing the documents that have been leaked. “We will investigate through our own secret service whether the people mentioned [in the Wikileaks documents] are really spies working for the U.S.,” Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Britain’s Channel 4 News. “If they are U.S. spies, then we know how to punish them.”
The man is either a stupid fool or writer has it wrong. No encryption software exists today that the government can’t break in a few days with their massively parallel arrayed decryption computers.
Any service person can get a TS clearance, but they do not receive any more classified info for which they have a “need to know” to do their job. Everythign is segmented and compartmentalized. He may have been hacking and stealing info.
I wish Wikileaks would do something patriotic FOR the USA, expose Obamas past, his history, all his credential, the entire enchilada, from the Dunham side of the family selling B-29 plans to the Russians to the connections of the American Communist party and rumored financial backing from Castro and his 50 years dream of ultimate revenge upon America.
this guy needs to get acquainted with the business end of a Mossad hushpuppy
Why did it take the military four years to get MSRAP vehicles that have been around for fifty years? Why launch Challenger against your engineers in freezing weather? Why spend trillions on urban renewal, HUD, Fresh Start when for decades it has been shown not to work but make things worse?
Why have one CIA Director surfing Russian porn sites with his issued laptop and another NS Director smuggling out documents in his pants?
We’re talking government. You think anyone is going to fall for having a gay, battalion intel clerk get this stuff?
I’d love to hear from any legal experts on the forum if this guy can hypothetically be tried for treason and sentenced to the death penalty if found guilty. Although not likely to happen with this administration, I’d still like to know if it’s possible.
For the sake of national security though, it would be good if he disappeared.
there may have already been soemone who fell for that gay intel clerk...and that’s how the gay intel clerk got his information.
If 1.4 gb is 1000 times larger than the previous release, that’d mean that the previous release was only 1.4 MB... small enough to fit on an old-fashioned (1980s) floppy drive.
I am not any kind of expert.
But I recall about ten years ago, when I had to reactivate a clearance, I asked the FBI interviewer what the status of the Designated Counties List was, and he said with disgust, "It's not politically correct any more".
That said, regardless that I doubt anything will be done, the people responsible and the people in the press who republished it need to be whacked. Today.
If they needed it for his job; and all communications types need high level security clearances, they would have a background investigation and if passed, given the appropriiate clearance. I’d have to guess there may have been some in that age group on the USS Pueblo. The reserve unit I joined in the late ‘60s was a group of cryptologists. I had a TS by 20 y/o.
Same here in the early 70’s. US Army 31S

I went to CT”R” SCO 1957 and had full BI while in Boot Camp (17yo) and received INT TS around 19 (if not earlier, not sure what was reqd for CT SCO) while aboard ship as RM and working as Cryptographer and around TS material...as they said, though most was need to know or ‘eyes only’.
Assange is not just ni fear of US government. The Aussie military intelligence hierarchy have been hounding him weeks before he first announced the preannouncement of the big leak.
Fair to say the military intelligence in the Anglosphere and Commonwealth all have him on their radar.
Can’t remember. Gays from elite British schools, ‘meeting’ American elite gays, all passing on to the Soviets.
Philby. Never turn your back on a man who calls himself “Kim.” Nyuk...nyuk...nyuk.
