The Global Intelligence Files

On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

At the heart of it, knowing whether a national crisis will disrupt output
in the world's #1 cocoa producer.

There may be circulation slowdowns as the government maintains a curfew,
but overall, the southern-based government will keep the cocoa flowing and
the northerner opposition isn't positioned to stop that.

Type III, analysis-driven

Cote d'Ivoire's Constitutional Court ruled Dec. 3 that incumbent
President Laurent Gbagbo won the country's run-off presidential
election, overturning preliminary results released a day before by the
Independent Electoral Commission. The move will lead to a loud
backlash by supporters of opposition presidential candidate Alassane
Ouattara, but clashes will be contained by a strong imposition of
government control, while Gbagbo uses his advantages of economic and
security force muster to compel Ouattara to enter drawn-out
negotiations to accommodate each other in a new coalition government.
