UPDATE: WikiLeaks Publishes CIA Director’s Hacked Emails
The anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks claims to have released a few documents from CIA director John Brennan’s private email account – the group calling the release The CIA Files.
According to the organization, Brennan made use of “the [AOL] account occasionally for several intelligence-related projects,” and to support the claim, Wikileaks published six documents.
The six documents stolen from an old account belonging to Mr Brennan include:
- A 2008 form provided for background investigation during Brennan’s confirmation
- A draft security clearance application that includes personal information of several federal employees
- A 2007 draft on national security challenges
- Position papers on Iran and the intelligence community at large
More Documents to Come
Wikileaks also said the group would release more CIA documents “over the coming days“.
