Julian Assange Warns He Might Have to WikiLeak Again


WikiLeaks mastermind Julian Assange, feisty from a week spent moving his site to Swiss servers after the Amazon boot and dodging photographers from T: The New York Times Style Magazine, has circulated a cache of uncensored documents believed to have files on BP and Guantánamo Bay ready to be released if any government tries any funny business. Assange warns that the files, his “insurance,” may easily be made public in the event that he is arrested or WikiLeaks is permanently shut down. “We have over a long period of time distributed encrypted backups of material we have yet to release. All we have to do is release the password to that material, and it is instantly available,” said Assange. The files are believed to pose a real security risk, and there’s no way to tell if he’s bluffing about the content — he encrypted them with a 256-digit key that experts say is virtually unbreakable.
