WikiLeaks is planning to release another secret document, and this time the CIA's involved. "WikiLeaks to release CIA paper tomorrow," the group tweeted yesterday, without providing any further details. It's not clear whether this document is connected to the 15,000 Afghanistan war records WIkiLeaks says it still holds, CNN notes.

Site founder Julian Assange continues to insist that a rape charge filed against him in Sweden last week and then quickly dropped was part of a smear campaign aimed at discrediting WikiLeaks. The lawyer for the alleged victim says rumors that the CIA and the Pentagon are involved in the accusations against Assange are "complete nonsense."
