OK, I know I'm a newbie, and I willingly (mostly) admit I'm an idiot when it comes to ...pretty much all of this crypto stuff. HOWEVER, I do have an intuitive knack for minuet details and patterns, decoding symbolism, identifying connections between things, yadda yadda. That said - I found two items I think some of you should definitely look at.

Regarding the first link, Assange apparently became a registered member of this blog site ONLY YESTERDAY, at which time he posted Exclusive: The Wikileaks Manifesto. It's not really a manifesto, but it is (You'll just have to read it). Assange is also a poet, and having read some of his poetry tonight, he's most certainly an individual who enjoys stacking layers and layers of meaning into words. As a poet myself, I believe even the most cryptic poem will tell you all you need to know about an author, because the author put it in there intentionally - you just know how to find it. But anyway - its possible the insurance file serves not only as his "insurance," but also as one of the links he discusses, and it's purpose is to help "split the conspiratorial power." This probably sounds really weak, or more like gibberish, so I'll study up and try to find a few more dots to connect (like I wouldn't anyway). Oh - and I think the idea someone had earlier about gauging guilt by the amount of resources thrown at this works in here too.
www.thecommentfactory.com...

This second link is from his website iq.org..., but the index page is blank - I mean really blank - no header, tags, body, nothing. There's other stuff there I'm sure some of you will find interesting, but what I wanted to make special note of is the Rubberhose encryption software he authored (this may be a 'duh!' for the professional, but remember, I'm an idiot, so I don't know). And I have no idea how this may be applicable to the insurance file, but links on this page, particularly the "Idiot Savants' Guide" link explain its security structure, source code, keying, hacking, etc.

It's not that I think the file can be hacked with this information, but for individuals who know what all this means, and know what they're looking for, the information may give some insight into what its about on and/or how Assange operates, structures things, whatever. I found this statement in the Guide interesting:


Rubberhose also allows you to pass information around to a group of people, but only allow certain people to access certain material.


So yeah, sorry - the link - iq.org...


You have no reason to trust me, and I probably sound like a fruitcake (because I'm not familiar with these concepts - that's my story and I'm sticking to it), but trust me - when something nags at me like this I'm rarely wrong (that's not to say I can always pinpoint the connection before it becomes obvious). I believe there's useful information here for someone who knows a hell of a lot more than I do. Just like I really think the symbolism of straw glass and bottle to FIASCO in my last post is somehow relevant - again, not necessarily for revealing contents, but maybe for gaining a better understanding of what you're dealing with. Maybe? Should I go back to lurking?

Well, just when I thought that WL was getting credible... If this article was actually written by Julian Assange and titled The Wikileaks Manifesto, then he plagiarized himself.

As I earlier posted in this thread here, this article was posted on cryptome.org as The Conspiracy Essays and was authored by Mr. Assange in 2006

Linkage: Julian Assange's Essays on Conspiracies
Warning: It's a PDF and yes, you'll have to download it.

I lean heavily toward Straw Glass and Bottle meaning Fiasco. See www.abovetopsecret.com...

After reading more on Assange and some of his poetry, I'd bet a pretty good chunk on it. That's the directory all the war-related files are in, which is very appropriate too, of course. How it's meaningful, though, I don't know. It's relevant, but it may be relevant only to the extent that "fiasco" reflects the contents. He could have just as easily named the directory "war" or "fiasco," but that's not as fun or cryptic - could just be Assange being clever.

Damn! I hate when that happens!

He could certainly plagiarize himself (if that's possible), but if someone else posted it, they didn't plagiarize since they posted it as him (that would be impersonation, I guess). I thought it was curious that he registered with a blog site (when he has so many resources), and that he posts this the day after the insurance file went up. (The presumption being it was recently written.)

Well, thanks for shaking up my etch-a-etch

If I remember correctly I think somebody mentioned that whoever cracks the program needs a specific program I think (there's been alot of posts) but I did a search for julian assange cryptologist and got a message board post

archives.neohapsis.com...

and he posted twice and you can do a search to see the posts and what it was about but one of the links he posted was to

www.netbsd.org...


I doubt it's relelvant cause it was 10 years ago but I'm still looking.


also found this and the quote at the end is interesting

www.mail-archive.com...@c2.net/msg04521.html

|If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people
together to collect wood or assign them tasks and
work, but rather teach them to long for the endless |immensity of the sea. -- Antoine de Saint Exupery

Seems that's actually a matter of contention:


The Biggest Gray Area: The big gray area I'm talking about here is your brain. So, I've talked about citation and fair use of other people's work, but what about your own work? I'm certain we've all done this...you have a class that asks for a term paper, and you wrote a similar paper to what is being required for another class the previous semester. It's your work, you own it, so it's not plagiarism, right?

Now if they shut down the net, a fair percentage of us are going to suspect that they did some really horrible things they dont want us to ever know about. No one is going to buy the terrorist line of crap at this point. Or very few will.



you seem to have forgotten how many people in the US think that muslims are the spawn of the devil.

Still kinda looking around and I found a old (I think) I guess username I'm doing a search on it and came up with some interesting stuff. If anything it kinda shows the background of Julian Assange. The name is proff@iq.org, I'm pretty sure it's ok to post cause I found it in another search and I don't think he uses it anymore or the site isn't around anymore.

I read in an article today that he used to go by the "nickname" "proff"

I'll see if I can find the link

Of course, and I should not have discussed plagiarism in such a light-hearted manner, as it is a very serious issue. When referencing something I authored in a previous work, I also include a proper citation.

At the very least, Assange should have included the original name and date of the work on the new post (assuming Assange made the post, of course).

haha, I could do that actually you should do a search on that name too there's alot of interesting stuff in there. I also found another user name of his it's the same proff name but a different extension or whatever.

No, I know some do. But I dont think that that group of fanatical Muslim haters out weighs the rest of us at this point. They are a vocal minority. Not the majority. And support for the war is dwindling.

Thats part of the problem with the strategy of the PTB on this one. They had already milked 9-11 for just about everything they could, and they persisted in pushing on and on and on.

People are sick of it. Its just old and tired, and no one wants to hear about terrorism anymore. They got greedy and overplayed it. That, the economic collapse, the gulf spill, just a whole load of crap is making them look pretty darn ridiculous right now.

I dont know about you, but I cant even look at any of them without seeing them as just cartoon cutouts. They are just so fake and so full of crap it just oozes off them. None of it seems real anymore, and I think thats because if there is a collective consciousness, it has totally awakened to the crap going on in our government.

Sure, there will be foot draggers and hold outs, but I think we have hit the tipping point.

I've seen twice now where he explains how to crack a password but I'm pretty sure that I can't post it and I don't know how up to date it would be either.

Perhaps on the morrow. As you may well suspect through my recent inauspicious posting - my bed time has pasted.

yeah I already did it, I'm in Alaska so I'm usually the last one on message boards like all the time.

I think I can post this but everybody should check it out

So, I just got this file today, and I have no idea what to do with it. Windows first says it needs to know the program that created it, but I doubt that it will either open or even be legible if I did. It is crazy, I am staring in the face of awesomeness and cannot touch it.

Does anyone here know anything about encryption?

And who else here actually has the file?

yeah a few people do, you have to read the thread to get past the first part, but from what was posted earlier you either can't do it from windows or it's very hard I'm honestly not sure how that works. somebody did get past the first encryption but there was another one after it.
