Why has this been over-looked. This thread needs to be bumped back to the front page, or a new one created, for that quote alone. It's certainly a line to fuel us conspiracy theorists, I mean come on, it implies something big. I assume by 'history' he means our collective history and not just Wikileaks. This really could be 'Insurance' considering TPTB have stepped up their surveillance and pursuit of WL and it's personnel.

There can be multiple explanations for that:
a) the file contains a hidden operating system, to improve security of the data included.
b) it contains 30 minutes of video
Foremost is a console program to recover files based on their headers, footers, and internal data structures. This process is commonly referred to as data carving. Foremost can work on image files, such as those generated by dd, Safeback, Encase, etc, or directly on a drive. The headers and footers can be specified by a configuration file or you can use command line switches to specify built-in file types. These built-in types look at the data structures of a given file format allowing for a more reliable and faster recovery.

Expert Cautions about Intelligence Trap in WikiLeaks 'Insurance' File
TEHRAN (FNA)- An Iranian IT expert warned here on Wednesday that a mysterious download file posted by the WikiLeaks website, labeled as 'Insurance', is likely a spy software used for identifying the information centers of the United States' foes.

How can it be spy software if it's not executable?
In any case, some of the details might be wrong. The file might not be encrypted with AES256. It might be Blowfish. It might be OpenSSL. It might be something else. Some more info here.
