I dunno to be honest... Unfortunately, due to the nature of it - being a digital file and all - it could be about anything. Although... they've
disclosed tons of information about the war(s)... and I'm wondering how much more they have left to make available. If it's war documents, like
their most recent release, it's going to make todays release seem like small potatoes I think.
Something tells me it might be a bit more than just war documents/logs tho... I think there's probably at least 1 video in there, and a handful of
pictures... and lots of text. Kinda like a "Wiki Leaks Pot Luck" or something.
Is the entire file about the same topic? Hard for me to even guess... It would be cool if it was.
The nature of the contents? Again... your guess is as good as mine. But.. I think with the amount of stuff that must be submitted to WikiLeaks by
various people, that have access to sensitive information, it's got to be pretty intense, whatever it is.
Take today's release for example... I don't think it would make a good insurance policy. It's startling, and it exposes alot of wrong-doing (by
action or inaction), and hopes to bring much more scrutiny to the powers that be. But for an insurance policy to be effective, it's got to be
rock-solid, and undeniable. It's got to hit hard, and be something that nobody wants to have exposed.... so let your mind wander.
I read here that the NSA, or DOD knows what the file contains... and, it probably scares them a little that the info was leaked to WikiLeaks - and is
being used as an insurance policy against something.
If the information wasn't critical, or they weren't afraid of it coming out, they'd make the info public, and then go after WikiLeaks/Assange, as
his insurance policy wouldn't be effective.
I wish I had concrete answers for you... but, due to the nature of the file, I don't. none of us do until they give us the password... or until
someone get's REALLY lucky and guesses it - which I don't think is going to happen.
As an aside - the insurance.aes256 file is about 1.38 Gigs in size... however, part of the encryption is something known as SALT - which makes the
file ultra-secure by adding random characters to the password (if I remember correctly). However, each character added to the PW essentially doubles
the storage space required by the file.
So... the contents are substantially smaller than the 1.38Gb file size.. we may very well open it,and find a single video, that's about 23 megabytes
