WikiLeaks readies next release

CIA documents next up

WikiLeaks used Twitter to tell the world it is to release a CIA document later today.

The site's supposed crusade of transparency has been over-shadowed in recent days by its founder's legal difficulties in Sweden.

Swedish prosecutor Eva Finne is still considering whether or not to prosecute the site's founder Julian Assange for alleged molestation charges made by two Swedish women. A decision is expected later this week.

The prosecutor's office issued, then withdrew, rape charges against Assange over the weekend. Assange denied any wrongdoing and claimed it is a Pentagon-backed smear campaign.

The claims have led to a predictable storm of conspiracy theory claim and counter-claim online, ranging from claims of CIA dirty tricks to self-promotion by Assange himself.

A lawyer representing one of the women told the Wall Street Journal that claims of CIA involvement were nonsense and had no substance, while Assange's lawyer said his client was innocent and the handling of the case had been an abuse of the law. ®
