UPDATE 7:53 PM EDT —The unique sets of numbers previously thought to be Hashtags are NOT! They are DECRYPTION KEYS for certain files; passwords if you will. This means that Wikileaks has just given the entire planet the decryption keys for three sets of files, 1 on John Kerry, 1 on Ecuador and a third on the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).
This is a “dead man’s switch” . . . it means that Wikileaks – or its Editor Julian Assange – are in direct danger —- or Assange may be dead.
By issuing these decryption keys, they are announcing that the files are already distributed and the world will be told WHERE to find those files if someone dies. Once the world is told WHERE to download those files, the decryption keys can be used by literally ANYONE to get all the deep secrets inside.
If it is a dead-man’s switch, then Julian Assange may already be dead or in custody. The release of the Encryption passwords would be PART OF the Dead Man’s switch. We’ll explain:
The decryption keys are an automated message in the case of someone like Assange being unable to regularly prove he’s alive and well. It’s usually set up where they must log in somewhere at a preset interval, say, once a day. This prevents the triggering of the switch
If something happens to them, the system automatically sends out codes to encrypted files already in the hands of friends, the press, other governments, etc. In this case, if it is a dead-man’s switch, the system did not receive the regular log-in and used Assange’s Twitter credentials to send out the decryption codes. The proof will be if we see Assange again, or hear that he’s dead/hospitalized/captured.
Otherwise, he could just be prepping for someone else to release the next batch of leaks. We’re pretty sure there are powers who are trying to cut off his access to the internet. They may have done so and the automated Dead Man’s Switch has begun its task.
If that’s the case . . . . if Assange is dead or in custody . . . . then the Dead Man’s Switch will continue its automated processing and, ultimately reveal to the world what Wikileaks has – thus doing severe harm to . . . somebody . . . .
Assange apparently dumped A LOT of Wikileaks at once making people think his “dead man trigger” had been activated.

There is a lot of chatter here…not sounding good.
UPDATE 9:17 PM EASTERN U.S. TIME:
I just spoke with the Ecuadorian Embassy in London. A man who identified himself only as a Security Guard answered the Press Office telephone. I idnetified myself and he told me he is not allowed to speak to the Press, that I would have to call back in the morning. SO I asked simply “Is Julian Assange still there?”
He replied “That is confidential information, I am not allowed to speak with you.” A strange reply since the entire world knows he’s been there for five years.
RUMINT: A low level intelligence guy (NOT CIA) has said the Obama Administration strong-armed Ecuador into Turning Assange over for Extradition. He also claims that Assange has refused to go, threatening to KILL HIMSELF if the try to take him out.
The Intel guy said “In 12 hours, Julian Assange will either be in a jail cell or dead.”
