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.

Here are the initial wire reports on the ICJB's press conference:

- AP reported "at least 21" Indian Olympians called for LOCOG to
drop Dow's sponsorship, calling it "offensive to the spirit of the Olympic
Games." The only person quoted by AP is Safreen Khan of Children Against
Dow-Carbide, who said "hundreds of children are being born disabled" and
blamed Dow for the lack of remediation in Bhopal. LOCOG is noted as
standing firm on the Dow sponsorship, and Dow's position on the Bhopal
issue is given. The article noted Dow's India office referred inquiries to
the US headquarters.

- IBNS issued what is likely the closest iteration of the ICJB press
release, as usual. Three Olympians appeared at the press conference in
Bhopal: "Inam - Ur - Rehman, B P Govinda, Syed Ali and Jalaluddin Rizvi,"
and said, "national and international Olympians should oppose the unholy
alliance with the poisoner of Bhopal. "

Representatives of the five Bhopal activist groups & NGOs are quoted -
Safreen Khan, Dhingra, Rashida Bee, Balkrishna Namdeo and Nawab Khan.
Bee said neither PM Singh's office nor the Indian Olympic Association
have responded or acted on the ICJB's request that they contact LOCOG
and demand Dow's sponsorship be dropped.

- PTI published a brief report from Chennai that Hockey Olympians
Vasudevan Baskaran and Charles Cornelius held a press conference in
conjunction with the ICJB's press event in Bhopal.
