Report: WikiLeaks has 'insurance' file staff and news service reports
updated 13 minutes ago

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has circulated across the Internet an encrypted cache of uncensored documents suspected of including files on BP and Guantanamo Bay, The Sunday Times reported.

An "insurance" file has been downloaded from the WikiLeaks site by tens of thousand of supporters, the newspaper reported, meant to trigger a deluge of national and commercial secrets if Assange's activites are curtailed.

Computer experts interviewed by the newspaper said it was unlikely that the U.S. could defeat the encryption in the files. The Sunday Times reported that the U.S. Defense Department said it was aware of the insurance file, which has been available for download since July

Assange is known to possess an aerial video of a U.S. airstrike in Afghanistan that killed civilians, BP files and Bank of America documents. It is not clear how WikiLeaks obtained the diplomatic documents, but the U.S. government's prime suspect is an Army private, Bradley Manning, who is in custody on charges of leaking other classified documents to WikiLeaks.
