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.

Carlos was captured in August 1994. Bruget disappears in November 1995.
I do not believe the intell on Carlos came from Bruget. It came from the
Sudanese who wanted to regain our favor after we put them on our
state-sponsored list. I do not see our hands in the Bruget disappearance
- not really our style. Not French, Swiss ( he was a
Swiss citizen), or German syles either. Israelis would have no reason to
go after him - Carlos yes, but not Bruget. No, I think either one of the
Palestinian terrorist groups or an Arab intell service did this. Of
course, Bruget could have planned this disappearance. Maybe he is in a
small dacha in Argentina (sic)? No Fred, I think this is an Arab hit but
we will never be sure.

May I ask why you are interested in this case? Book subject? Heard you
wrote one on the 1970s murder of the Israeli air attache in Maryland - a
BSO hit.

Hummm....I seem to recall us tipping off the Frogs to Carlos'
whereabouts in The Sudan. Is it feasible we flipped Bruget and he was
used to locate Carlos?

Bruget and Koop were arrested in early 1980s, not 1990s.

All open source info states he disappeared on November 12, 1995.
Either kidnapped and killed by an intelligence agency or
Palestinians. Simply put, a mystery. How important is this to you?
I could use a chit and contact a former RAF analyst at the BfV who is
now retired and ask him. Personally, I think Bruget was killed by
either Syrian, or Iraqi intelligence services because of his knowledge
of Carlos' work for these states. You must know that Carlos published
his bio in 2004 and in 2009 sent President Obama a letter asking for
help in finding Bruget - all open source. Proof on who kidnapped /
killed Bruget will be hard to come by - but a lot speculations. As
you know, there are many mysteries in this field that will never be

What happened to him? Was he rendered?

Yes, he was arrested in Paris in the 1990s along with Carlos's
girlfriend Magadelan Koop. Carlos carried out several attacks on
French targets and even sent a threat letter to the French
Minister of interior. French held fast. Both were eventually
released. Koop in Venezuela and Bruguet disappeared ....

Hello Dennis,

Do you recall a terrorist by the name of Bruno Breguet, who
in 1995 on a ferry from Italy to Greece?

He was linked to Carlos.

Thanks much, Fred
