Whistle-blower site WikiLeaks is preparing to release a leaked CIA paper sometime today, according to AFP.
“WikiLeaks to release CIA paper tomorrow,” the site said yesterday in a Tweet posted on its website.
The shadowy organization is already involved in a dispute with the Pentagon over the publishing tens of thousands documents related to the war in Afghanistan. Founder Julian Assange has also been in hot water after Swedish prosecutors issued a warrant for his arrest on suspicion of rape, only to retract the order hours later. A separate claim of molestation is still being investigated.
According to Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, Assange has hired Leif Silbersky, a well-known defense attorney who has dealt with numerous high-profile cases throughout his legal career.
WikiLeaks did not disclose any additional information about the CIA paper it planned to release.
