The "poison pill" is just a scare.
Of course, I'm often wrong.
Well, in this day in age, and given this dude's position it is equally easy for him/(them, really we must start treating this guy as the public face
of a collective) to have actual juicy details in there.
It could be anything, it could be all the chaff that was separated from the wheat of earlier leaks - it could be a totally new source of data... But
somehow I think it would be parts from all over the place - for instance documents on war may not kick the bankers where it really hurts and vice
versa, so I would expect it to cover quite a few bases...
And I do expect some people outside of wikileaks have some idea of the contents, just to sweeten the whole leverage angle - I don't think it has a
back door, and I reckon it's gonna take something much more dramatic than a couple of chancing feminists to trigger the key hash release... I guess
the value of the payload would be directly proportional to the threat that occasion's the key release... If it's nudie pictures of the chief
Inspector of Scotland yard, expect them to be set free as soon as the british police are jerks... If it's incontrovertible world shaking 9/11 stuff,
well that would take a bit more.

Is there anything in there about Madonna leaving a few adopted kids in some country and forgetting which one?
