LONDON Online whistle-blower WikiLeaks has posted a huge encrypted file named "Insurance" to its website, sparking speculation that those behind the organization may be prepared to release more classified information if authorities interfere with them.
At 1.4 gigabytes, the file is 20 times larger than the batch of 77,000 secret U.S. military documents about Afghanistan that WikiLeaks dumped onto the Web last month, and cryptographers say that the file is virtually impossible to crack unless WikiLeaks releases the key used to encode the material.

This ought to be interesting, ping.
Attack them with a huge denial of service, Pentagon. lol
A Pentagon mouthpiece was on TV today asking (begging?) Wikileaks not to post anymore classified info.
Yet last week there were reports that the NY Slimes went to the White House prior to publishing the initial leaked information and received an Obama/Gibbs-sized shrug of indifference.
Can this administration be any more inept? It boggles the mind.
Is he going to blackmail anyone who tries to go after him with the threat of a release?
Something odd is afoot as I imagine this ‘situation’ could have been managed.
I always thought we had Spooks to take of these things.
too late. the file has been downloaded to hard drives all over the world. All he would have to do is post the password on a bulletin board somewhere.
They'll release it, they can't stand not to. Their just going to try and hide behind "encryption" (Who me? We encrypted that file! Evil hackers un-locked it!!), but the key is probably on their site already, just broken down.
If not, it'll pop up on an anti-American site soon enough.
I'll laugh my arse off if it is blowfish encrypted.
Things are easy to encrypt..
They've all been reassigned to work on finding dirt on Sarah Palin.
Obama doesn't have the cahonees to order such a mission.
HA! You know what, you probably right...It’s probably a movie fetched off of demonoid and encrypted.
Wikileaks doesn’t have the key. They are hoping some hacker can crack it.
They need to rescind the no assassination policy.
I thought about that at first..But what if the file is actually good news for America? They would not chance that.
I have to say that I am not really sure who I am rooting for in this case. I certainly do not want any serviceman to be put at risk. But if true exposure of Zero and the hildabeast are in there...well?
Wikileaks and the shemale wannabe are giving our entire country the middle finger. This goes way beyond Obama and Hitlery.
Do you actually think that Obastard would allow GOOD news to be leaked to them?
It is Obama’s birth certificate and college records with Michelle whitey tapes and all of the Chicago mob corruption files and facts that prove Elvis and Michael Jackson are alive and big foot exists.
