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.

Subject: INSIGHT - RUSSIA - Latest in Clan Wars (protect for now)

ATTRIBUTION: Stratfor sources in the Kremlin
SOURCE DESCRIPTION: The Prosecutor General

The past few weeks have been particularly difficult between the clans.

Surkov/Medvedev tandem has purge a slew of people from
Sechin/Patrusheva**s clan. 21 officials from the Interior Ministry, 5 FSB
Generals in the Defense Ministry and Moscowa**s police chief Pronin have
all been purged.

In response, Sechin/Patrusheva**s group has decided that they need to come
after me and my groupa**the Prosecutor Generala**s office. They have used
their foot soldier, Alexander Bastrykin, in the Investigative Committee to
launch a purge within my office. Bastrykin vows to not be owned by Sechin,
though I have never believed this and now my proof is here. Thus far they
have gotten fired the head of my Investigative Committee, Anatoli
Bagmeta**who was critical to aiding me in my work inside our
investigations against the Siloviki. Bastrykin is planning on firing the
heads of the regional Investigative Committees as well, 12 in all.

The problem is that Sechin/Patrushev want to come after me (Chaika), but
Surkov will not allow such a move. What I have been told is that Putin has
laid ground rules on how far each clan can go to purge the other. For
example, Surkova**s request to have Interior Minister Nurgaliyev sacked
was quickly nixed by Putin. Now that Sechina**s move to get me fired has
also been shielded from above. So instead there are a lot of purges
happening on the second tier, like these in the past few weeks.
