Feel free to add to the discussion other good links.

From an interview with Bendis, there is good reason to believe that the United States President is a Skrull (sorry Naomi Bob if you have already fully explained this, but as there are no archives...)

The logic of this speculation is that Bendis specifically refers readers to his Secret War depiction of a transcript of Maria Hill's first meeting with the President, with the President stating a distrust (and perhaps even hatred) of "costumes". This is how Marvel has customarily given in their stories hints that a character, particularly a government official, is an imposter, such as Craddock in the Kree-Skrull War.

Tom Brevoort in his blog entry provides what is supposed to be part of an email exchange with some spoilers redacted on in X's.

I agree with speculations such as this thread that a plausible filling in of the blanks is that Dum Dum Dugan is a Skrull imposter who will suicide bomb a major SWORD facility, possibly killing Agent Brand and other SWORD top command in the process.

One thing I like about Bendis's major event work for Marvel is that his stories are "front-loaded" both in being made available, at the least the first part, to the entire Internet, and in the art providing hints as to who is the prime opponent. I think it is consistent for Marvel to be rather free in dropping major hints about what will happen to stoke interest.
