Multiple layers of encrypted files within files sounds a little convoluted. Why do that? Could it be that the passwords for successive layers will be slowly disseminated thru the web -- Perhaps in response to perceived threats?
All of this really kind of stinks to me. It doesn't feel right. How do you know that you aren't being monitored by the NSA for just downloading that file? I doesn't matter how careful you think you are, they can trace you.
Just be extra cautions because these people don't play games.

While I love and admire what Assange is doing, the following explanation occurred to me earlier:
Lately there has been alot of talk that he is a CIA/NSA/etc plant. By posting this Insurance file, he is clearly making it look like he is trying to keep some threat at bay, most likely intelligence agencies and governments, which could totally just be for show to kill off those rumors.

Interesting. Could 1.4 Gb of random data or it could be the real deal waiting to go.
I wonder how many people are trying to brute force the password as we type?
Reminds me of that film with Sir Patrick Stewart, where he plays a retired agent of some intelligence agency. As insurance he set up a site that couldn't be brought down, and had to log into it every 24 hours, otherwise the data on it was released to the world, via a form of a dead mans switch. The idea was to protect himself.
A very interesting film. EDIT: Safe House (1995/1996). Wikileaks seem to be paralleling this idea.
