What’s In The WikiLeaks Mystery File?

Wikileaks logoIs this the notorious Julian Assange “insurance” file? From AFP:

WikiLeaks released a mysterious encrypted file on Wednesday after telling its followers on Twitter to stand by for “an important announcement.”

WikiLeaks did not identify the contents of the 571 megabyte file and it could not be opened without a decryption key, which the anti-secrecy website said would be released “at the appropriate moment.”

In July of last year, WikiLeaks posted what it called an “insurance file,” which was also encrypted.

According to press reports, the 1.4-gigabyte file was intended for public release in the event of something untoward happening to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

Assange is currently fighting extradition from Britain to Sweden where he is wanted to face questioning over allegations of rape and sexual assault.

The release of the latest mystery file comes just days after WikiLeaks published more than 130,000 US diplomatic cables from what it says is a cache of more than 251,000 documents.

Without confirming the authenticity of the latest documents, State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the United States “strongly condemns any illegal disclosure of classified information…

      Would he be trying to punish us with information then…perhaps to scare us into becoming Luddites rather than face such a ghastly fate?

        At least being a luddite is a little close to sustainable. Ain’t ever gone get there on the road we’re taking.

    I dunno but I think everyone knows those rape charges are BS. The cases themselves are flimsy and furthermore, sense when the fuck is alleged “rape” considered an international emergency? Most places in the world just give the guy a slap on the wrist. Hell, here in America, you get more time in jail for sitting in your mom’s garage and smoking pot than you do for rape!

    • TEKNIKAOS

      wow your fucking stupid. being that as it is…

      1. extraditing someone to the country or state of the crime they are being charged for is not uncommon or considered an”international emergency.”

      2. most countries certainly take rape seriously and variously punishable by death, incarceration, institutionalization, chemical castration, dismemberment, and torture. …although your right about america being one of the more sympathetic societies for rapists….probably because of all the idiots like you.

      3.learn before you speak….the average sentence for a first time rapist is minimum 7-20…in the us.

        I think what he is trying to say is that the rape charge is a false accusation, supported by several governments, and that it would not be happening if Assange had not released all those cables. As for the rest of his post…well, yeah, you’re probably right in calling that out.

          I would not be surprised if you’re correct that the rape charge wouldn’t have happened if Assange hadn’t released the information, but that doesn’t mean the rape charge is bunk.  It’s entirely possible that Assange committed rape and the US was dying for a excuse to have him charged with something, just like its possible to believe wikileaks is a good thing but that Assange ought to serve jail time if he is in fact guilty.  It’s not an either/or situation here.

        I applaud your being unwilling to take rape lightly as a subject. A commendable attitude. Any civilized country should treat rape as a horror visited upon human beings that should be severely discouraged…

        …but at least in the case of Assange…it simply reeks of being a badly rigged encounter with a second hand ‘asset’ who set him up for a fall…with considerable assistance from the Swedish courts and government…breaking their own laws and protocols many times in the process of entangling him. The sheer volume of backpedaling and re-defining of precedent by the Swedes is more than sufficient cause to toss the case out and refuse extradition…since they’ve made it abundantly clear that no pesky series of laws or rules will get in the way of their mauling him at any cost.

      Why isn’t it possible that Assange committed sexual misconduct and the US was looking for a way to railroad him?

    He wasn’t even charged with rape he was charged with sex by surprise which means after having consensual sex the night before  and falling asleep together the women woke with him having sex with them again.  Not as if he chased them down the street and forced to the ground.  Now while I’m not trying to defend his actions I’m really tired of everyone calling it rape when it wasn’t.

      Unless I’m mistaken, it’s on the books under sexual assault crimes.  Rape comes in many forms, not all of them are violent.
