I'm following this on sight , And think its great how long before the first threads will be around here? And is this credible new stuff leaking here or old wikileaks files ?
"On 29 July 2010, WikiLeaks added a 1.4 GB "Insurance File" to the Afghan War Diary page. The file is AES encrypted and there has been speculation that it was intended to serve as insurance in case the WikiLeaks website or its spokesman Julian Assange are incapacitated, upon which the passphrase could be published, similar to the concept of a dead man's switch. Following the first few days' release of the US diplomatic cables starting 28 November 2010, the US television broadcaster CBS predicted that "If anything happens to Assange or the website, a key will go out to unlock the files. There would then be no way to stop the information from spreading like wildfire because so many people already have copies." CBS correspondent Declan McCullagh stated, "What most folks are speculating is that the insurance file contains unreleased information that would be especially embarrassing to the US government if it were released."

Thank you, I've heard about that and thank you for the wiki link. Maybe I didn't make myself clear and maybe I think I'm being treated like an idiot. I didn't ask what the thread is about.
My question was... What's going on with this thread? A RECAP PLEASE
