Not to mention i believe if certain interests really wanted him gone, he would be - and surely government supercomputers could crack this in 24hrs or less. Also now it's 'in play' someone else will eventually break it.

Because you don't decrypt military encryption,
military encryption decrypts you!
This proves someone is giving him the Cipher from the inside.
The only way someone could be giving him this is from like the NSA. Seriously this is messed up.
He must be a plant. Wikileaks must be a front. Obviously with NSA level decryption abilities. (He has top secret Ciphers)
No hackers in the basements are gonna break that. AES256 with a decent pass key? Holy crap man that would take forever to crack with brute force, you NEED the cipher seriously.
Who do they think they are fooling by being so blatant about this?
I did some research on this stuff too. I will share a little bit of it if anyone is interested.
Until May 2009, the only successful published attacks against the full AES were side-channel attacks on some specific implementations. The National Security Agency (NSA) reviewed all the AES finalists, including Rijndael, and stated that all of them were secure enough for U.S. Government non-classified data. In June 2003, the U.S. Government announced that AES may be used to protect classified information: The design and strength of all key lengths of the AES algorithm (i.e., 128, 192 and 256) are sufficient to protect classified information up to the SECRET level. TOP SECRET information will require use of either the 192 or 256 key lengths.The implementation of AES in products intended to protect national security systems and/or information must be reviewed and certified by NSA prior to their acquisition and use." AES has 10 rounds for 128-bit keys, 12 rounds for 192-bit keys, and 14 rounds for 256-bit keys. By 2006, the best known attacks were on 7 rounds for 128-bit keys, 8 rounds for 192-bit keys, and 9 rounds for 256-bit keys
But really read the whole article there it's quite fascinating.
Also, another link I read.
Really just type in "How hard is AES 256 to crack?" into Google and tons of stuff comes up, almost all of it is extremely interesting and eye opening.
Granted I am not a expert in encryption by any means, I am just a guy who reads stuff and thinks about it

I have been a ghost of this site for years but just noticed something relevent you all need to see:
""WikiLeaks communications infrastructure is currently under attack. Project BO move to coms channel S. Activate Reston5.""
the password may have just been released.

"straw, glass and bottle" sounds very much like a elite's term for the old aussie saying "hook, line and sinker".
