New WikiLeaks Doc Release Today: ‘CIA Paper’
August 25, 2010
(ChattahBox)—As the world waits for another Pentagon documents dump from WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, the mysterious former hacker announced the release of a CIA document on his Twitter page. The Australian-born muckraker has certainly had a busy few days. Swedish authorities issued an arrest warrant for Assange on charges of rape and molestation, that was withdrawn just hours later, although he is still expected to appear for questioning on the molestation allegations. Now, after a short detour fending off rape allegations, Assange is back to his whistleblowing ways, retrieving material from shadowy international postal drops.
On late Tuesday, the following tweet appeared on WikiLeaks’ official page:
“WikiLeaks to release CIA paper tomorrow.”
No further details were provided. What kind of CIA paper? And what does it say?
Those questions will be answered sometime today, according to the Twitter posting.
As ChattahBox has previously reported, “Assange and his group have come under increasing criticism for leaking over 77,000 secret Pentagon documents detailing the U.S. military’s operation in Afghanistan. Pentagon officials have accused the Australian WikiLeaks founder of placing soldiers and informants in harms away, with the release of sensitive documents.”
Assange recently announced an additional dump of 15,000 Pentagon documents in two-weeks.
