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.

Pardon my late response to your email. I have been up to my ears in
Stratfor briefings this week and this is the first free day that I have
had. I am glad that you wrote to Fred Burton and Scott Stewart. They are
both valuable, professional guys and are part of the STRATFOR hierarchy.

As I am sure that Chet told you, I am still with STRATFOR creating
business in the Washington area. Would love to hook up with you and Chet
for lunch and to share stories.

Hey Ron. I just found this article your guys wrote last year. It is great,
and will be put to good use as I fight with the contrarians. I saw Chet
Nagle at a party last night for just a few minutes and we didnt get much
time to chat. Hope you are well.

Thanks Fred. John Bennan called me last Aug 19th, the day before Megrahi
was released, to say that he had just spoken to Scottish Justice Minister
Kenny MacAskill, at the request of President Obama. We were still not
sure what MacAskill was going to do, but John Brennan said they were
assured there would not be any "celebratory activities." That assurance
was clearly not honored.
I will add you and Mike Parks to my email list. Thanks for all your
All the best,
Frank Duggan

Hello Frank,

Horrible event.

I would be honored to send you a signed copy of my book Ghost, which
discusses my read (from the DSS end) on the Libyan attack. Pls also add
me to the mailing list, if you can.

Our CT office started and operated the Rewards for Justice Program (am
copying former agent Mike Parks) and we set the initial $2 million dollar
reward on the heads of the Libyans responsible.

Simply shocking to me that we allowed the hand-over to the Libyans. Have
you been given any sort of briefing by State or the Agency on what really
took place?

How can we help you?

Best Regards,

Yes, Gannon is a great guy, as is my colleague Ron Duchin.

I'm cc:ing another of my Stratfor colleagues on this message. His name is
Fred Burton and he worked the Pan-Am 103 investigation for DS. It is
indeed personal for us.

Is there anything we can do to help you and your organization?

Good to hear from you, Scott. That paper on the Lockerbie bombing was
spectacular and I am embarrassed I never saw it before. I knew a bunch of
Stratfor guys in years past (Ron Duchin, Buckley Carlson, Blumel (forget
his first name) and some other guys I helped in your efforts on Bankruptcy
reform about ten years ago.
That Pan Am flight was amazing- it is very rare that I dont meet someone
who knew someone connected to the bombing, and like you, it becomes
personal. A lot of guys knew Matt Gannon, including John Brennen, now the
terrorism czar, and it is personal with him too. The Gannon family was
large, as you know, so I assume your friend is Richard Gannon. He is a
good guy, very quiet, and shows up every year at the memorial service we
have at Arlington Cemetery. I will add you to my mailing list and you will
get more shit than you want, but you can just delete it. Thanks again, and
let's stay in touch.
All the best,
Frank Duggan

Hello Frank,

Thank you for the very kind words. I lost two colleagues on Pan-Am 103
(Dan O'Connor and Ron Lariviere) and the brother of a third colleague
(Matt Gannon) was also killed on that flight.

I'd like to thank you for all the efforts your organization makes to help
bring those who murdered my colleagues and the rest of the Pan-Am 103
victims to justice.

Warmest regards,

Scott Stewart

This is the best and clearest explanation of the bombing and the evidence

against Libya that I have seen. I have always had great admiration for

Stratfor but I must admit, I just found this year old article. It will be

very helpful in light of the persistent charges from the Libya shills and

Megrahi supporters who try to point the finger away from Libya. Thank you

very much.
