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.

The Sacramento Bee on 7/17 reported on activists that employ hoaxes,
including Yes Men's Bhopal/BBC hoax and the Yes Men partnering with
Rainforest Action Network to hijack Chevron's "Yes, We Can" ad campaign. A
communications firm representative stated corporations like Dow "make
things worse for themselves when they step in" to respond to the Yes Men's
actions, such as when Dow "loudly distanced itself from a humane gesture
like compensating the victims of the tragic accident at Bhopal, still
suffering 20 years later. Bichlbaum was quoted at length and answered
questions on some other Yes Men actions, including the SurvivaBall. Sierra
Club chairman Carl Pope spoke highly of the Yes Men, because companies
"must rebut" when they are the victim of Yes Men actions.

The Yes Men have been quiet again this week, there are no updates to
report from their websites or social media.

- A few other Twitter users are seeing physical similarities between
Andy Bichlbaum and James Murdoch, and are calling for Bichlbaum to be cast
as Murdoch in a movie version of the News of the World/News Corp scandal.

- AlterNet posted the Yes! magazine article from last week in which
Bichlbaum and Bonanno chose four other "protests that shook the world
(with laughter)" and the publication editors added the BBC/Bhopal hoax for
a total of five pranks.
