Wikileaks posts insurance file

With the release of some 90,000 classified documents by the whistleblower Wikileaks many facts surfaced, which the Pentagon wanted to remain secret.
This includes collaboration of Pakistani officials with the Taliban, increasing difficulties in the North and also a massive amount of civilian casualties.

Now the Pentagon wants these documents back, including every copy of them. They issued a statement, which is quite interesting, because these documents are already widely spread, so what is the point?

“We want whatever they have returned to us and we want whatever copies they have expunged… We demand that they do the right thing. If doing the right thing is not good enough for them, then we will figure out what alternatives we have to compel them to do the right thing.”

Making Wikileaks compel to do the right thing sounds funny, because that’s where the newly uploaded insurance file comes into play. This file is more than twice the size of the Afghanistan documents and completely encrypted. This key for decrypting the file will probably be released, if something happens to the founder Julian Assange or Wikileaks itself.

The file could either be a huge bluff or even more devastating documents than those already released. The question is whether the Pentagon or the FBI, which also investigates this matter, will stay away just because of the file. They can never be sure that Wikileaks will not release the key anyway.

But yet again, what is so secret and therefore powerful, that it works as insurance? This might be a huge thing for conspirator theorists all over the place.

I am sure this won’t be the last thing we hear about this file.
