Don't believe the article.

They had redundant backups and insurance files. There are thousands of copies out there.

Assange deserves this. Wikileaks was never about getting the truth out or exposing anything, it was all about getting Assange in front of the camera to stroke his ego. That's why it took MONTHS of "JUST WAIT TILL WE RELEASE THIS - IT'S AMAZING!", instead of instantaneous releases of anything and everything that people wanted to post.

Like they dont make multiple copies of each file.

This really is an odd story, both Assange and Domscheit-Berg are both saying the data is gone and its not like they are friends any more. Would they both lie about somthing like that?

That made me laugh. I have those moments. It's also when I realise I've spent 5 mins on one post.

If you have the keys to access the data in multiple backup sites... you can delete them forever. It's not that hard to do because its digital information. A few commands lines and you can delete digital data forever.

It's more like TPTB leaned REALLY hard on him. He had Hillary and the Potus really p****d off. I heard before that they had several sets of backup copies, sent to different locations, so I don't believe the oops got deleted bit at all. Assange caved under pressure, end of story.

Does anyone notice that the MSM has placed wikileak under the rug? Like the site has done what it was meant to do and is slowly leaving us? This reminds me of h1n1 and other "Hot topics" that comes and goes.

Any one want to make a bet on how long until he gets "deleted"?
This in not a game. He just committed suicide.

Nothing in this day and age gets "permanently deleted". If they still had all of these amazing secrets, what the hell were they waiting for, anyway? Why hold back? Were they expecting to get paid for them or something?

Or it could possibly be that since he's walking around free, that he did in fact have some rather juicy secrets to tell. Now that this Berg fella deleted them all, Assange could be killed or incarcerated. Or, it was all just disinfo from the get go.

I would think that wikileaks would have backups of the files somewhere... Assange would realize how important those files really were, or at least one would think.

I almost wonder if this guy isn't looking for media attention by deleting said files...

Think about it for a moment. Wikileaks has some of the most sensitive, earth shaking files in the world and they aren't going to save it to CD or at least on a portable, external drive somewhere in case someone on the inside went rogue?

The move might not have been for publicity but it is certainly a statement. He might know that Assange has copies of the files somewhere and is doing all of this for his own publicity, hence the new company. It both acts to put his own competing company in the media and be seen, somehow, in a good light within the intelligence community in general (not to mention, by Bank of America).

He could've also been paid by Bank of America and other companies with vested interest in keeping those files from getting out into the open.

Keep in mind that he said he did this in the interest of keeping the informants identities secret. That's counterintuitive to how wikileaks operates in the first place. The files don't necessarily give away someone's identity as a wikileaks informant. Something deeper going on here.

Like an expert on the field who knows all the systems wouldn't know that?
Doesn't matter if you have million copies out there if the perp has access to them all.
Also the insurance file was done before some of this stuff was given to wikileaks. So that's a no go.
I cant tell what I'd do if I'd ever happen to run into this guy cause that is against the T&C but use your imagination. This guy is the one who is a sellout. He sold out, destroyed data, started openleaks and now he expects people to trust leaks to him???

I bet the insurance files is filled with worthless info and they will never release the key to unlock it. People fell for the bait hook, line and sinker. Nothing that damaging was released and never will be.

I'd bet that the insurance files has original uncensored copies of the diplomatic cables, the iraq war files and the afgan warfiles. Complete with names, dates, locations etc. If that were to leak out it would be a poopstorm of epic magnitude. So it's a good insurance.
