WikiLeaks Vows ‘Thermonuclear’ File Leak if Prosecuted

December 6, 2010

(ChattahBox World News)— WikiLeaks’ founder and anarchist Julian Assange continues to play an international cat and mouse game with world governments seeking his downfall, and Swedish authorities who are after him for rape charges. His lawyer, Mark Stephens is threatening to release all of the stolen files in Assange’s possession, including unredacted versions, if Assange is prosecuted on either espionage or rape charges. Stephens called the mega file cache an insurance policy and a “thermonuclear device.”

The release of stolen U.S. diplomatic cables has been continuing unabated, despite a number of cyber attacks interrupting service and being dumped by Amazon.com and PayPal.

But with the Swedes hot and heavy on his trail and neoconservatives from the U.S. and Canada labeling him as a terrorist, Assange is threatening to publicly release an encryption key to a massive uncensored file that reportedly also includes information on BP and Guantanamo Bay.

“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 password-protected insurance policy is said to be secured with a virtually unbreakable 256-digit key.

Stephens added WikiLeaks has “been subject to cyberattacks and censorship around the world and they need to protect themselves … This is what they believe to be a thermonuclear device in the information age.”

Meanwhile, Assange’s ego continues to take on cartoonish proportions, as he embraces the persona of Superman’s archenemy, the evil genius Lex Luthor.

“I believe geopolitics will be separated into pre-and post-Cablegate phases,” said Assange.
