The Global Intelligence Files

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.

From: James F Smith

Dear Mr. Friedman and Stratfor Team,

My background is CIA and our company is comprised of former DOD, CIA and
former law enforcement personnel. We provide services for those same
groups in the form of training, security and information collection.

As such, I am routinely asked to make guest appearance on various national
/ international television and radio programs to discuss issues of
national security, intelligence, counter-terrorism and related matters.

My intent is to thank you for your organization's excellent service of
intelligence reporting and analysis. Outstanding just doesn't cut it -
professionally competent, salient, germane, concise are all descriptors
that describe your organization's work product. I routinely refer to your
site prior to on-camera appearances to do a sanity-check on my talking

Keep up the great work ladies and gentlemen. You're doing a great service
to your subscribers.



(as I requested above, please do not reprint or publish this email - thank

Jamie Smith
