The Guantanamo Bay Wikileaks Files, Grand Jury possibly Investigating Wikileaks

On Sunday April 24th, Wikileaks began publishing 779 secret files of all Guantanamo Bay prisoners. The files included information about the prisoners identity, health assessment, detainee's account of events, capture information, evaluation of detainee's accounts, detainee threat, detainee intelligence value assessment, and enemy combatant status. The UK paper The Telegraph was passed the files and leaked the information in an easy to read database on their website with pictures and nationality of the prisoners as well as time spent in the prison and an easy search system here. The original Wikileak site here.

In wake of the release, the FBI has served a Grand Jury subpoena in Boston to a Cambridge resident with ties to Wikileak, to testify in Alexandria, VA, the site where the Grand Jury has convened to investigate Wikileaks and Julian Assange. Assange had warned before in the past that any attempt to shut the Wikileaks site down or to bring about charges on him would result in the huge release of state and commercial secrets in a so called "insurance file" a 1.4 GB file.

  14. Assange really has the world by the balls. Governments and multi-nationals every must be shitting themselves. If he's casually releasing Guantanamo info I'm really curious about what's in the insurance file.
