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.

Patrick Boykin was the POC.

Circa 2009?

You may recall I blogged about TrapWire? Abraxxas is TrapWire.

No worries. Mike is an ex spook and knows shit happens.

Ok, no problem. Since when has this agreement existed? I need to know this
stuff so that I can put them on our list of content share partners and
make sure that no one contacts them again like this. This is something
that Brian didn't even know about (Meredith's jurisdiction to make sure
this info is passed down to whoever's the current PR manager, so it's not
your bad or anything).

Question: Do you know Kyle? We got this mssg from him. Has something
changed? Or just a misunderstanding over there? Mike
