#vault7: WikiLeaks Posts Series Of Cryptic Vault 7 Tweets Suggesting Leak
Official Twitter account posting mysterious threats or teases for possible conspiracy
WikiLeaks' official Twitter account has posted a series of mysterious tweets referencing "Vault 7", with the hashtag #vault7, that suggests, or threatens, some sort of leak, yet no one seems to know what any of it means.
The internet is awash with rumors that it's relating to the release of classified 9/11 documents, Hillary Clinton FBI investigation files, or even some sort of uncovered Nazi conspiracy, but as the suspense continues, these are all just theories, with no answers yet from WikiLeaks.
With no official word from Assange et al regarding the nature of the cryptic messages, let's take a look at the tweets so far and the images attached to them.
Tweet 1: What is Vault 7?
This is a massive doomsday vault, packed with heirloom seed variety's sent from all over the globe.
According to building plans, available images and all descriptions I've been able to find, however - there are only 3 vaults inside.
Tweet 2: Where is Vault 7?
This image can be found on shutterstock with this description :
Reichsbank gold, SS loot, paintings in a Salt mine in Merkers, Germany. April 15, 1945. Photo by the 'Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives',
Mashable has a great article covering the events surrounding this photograph titled "The Monuments Men - The Nazis stole art. These guys took it back." that gave this caption for the photo :
The 90th Division of the U.S. Third Army discovered this cache of Reichsbank wealth, SS loot and Berlin museum paintings that were removed from Berlin to a salt mine vault in Merkers, Germany.
Tweet 3: When is Vault 7?
This image is of a Pratt & Whitney F119 afterburning turbofan engine developed by Pratt & Whitney for the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor advanced tactical fighter.
This specific photograph can be traced to the Joint Base Langley-Eustis website, where it has this caption:
LANGLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Va. -- Airmen of the 1st Component Maintenance Squadron run a test on a Pratt and Whitney F119-PW-100 engine at the test cell, or hush house, here April 9. These inspections are critical in order to remove any objects that could damage the blades inside the engines. (U.S. Air Force photo/ Airman 1st Class Gul Crockett)
Other potentially relevant tweets
Now this might just be another coincidence however exactly 30 minutes before the first "Vault 7" tweet, they tweeted this:
Note this is file 6 from vault.fbi.gov, which they then followed with references to vault 7...
Wikileaks also tweeted a youtube video of "11 interesting WikiLeaks publications", with a video thumbnail from 9/11.

What does it mean?
It's too early to say what they're referring to for sure, but among all of the theories floating around at this stage, I think it's referring to another possible release related to the Clinton FBI investigation.
Let's look back over the questions asked, and the clues given so far:
WHAT is Vault 7
It's a massive subterranean vault, possibly holding seeds / genetic materials.
WHERE is Vault 7
The photo was of a Salt Mine re-purposed by Nazi's into a gold vault in Merkers, Germany
WHEN is Vault 7
The photo was taken on April 9th, 2010, but the engine model number could be a 9/11 reference.
I feel like this tweet series hasn't finished yet, and they're either hyping people up for a new release or sending an abstract threat to release information, possibly to the FBI given the timing of the tweets.
They seem to be running through the "5 W's" - What Who Where When Why - so we're still waiting on the Who and the Why.
I really hope the rumors are true, and that we're on the verge of major disclosure - but for now, I'm just waiting for more information and trying not to get my hopes up:
