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.

Scot, Tomm,

As you've no doubt seen, BBC News published an updated article on the
Bhopal activist response to the Olympic stadium sponsorship, this time
quoting Satinath Sarangi. He called Dow's sponsorship a "dance on the
graves of Bhopal gas victims" and promised protests in "Bhopal, Delhi and
London, if necessary."

The article noted former Olympic gold medal hockey player Aslam Sher Khan
is calling for India to boycott the London games over the sponsorship.

Dow's position on Bhopal and the London games, as well as the London
Olympic Committee statement regarding the sponsorship were also included.

The article has been shared on social media directly from the BBC News
website 187 times, so far. There are no comments posted on the news page.

The reporter is Shahzeb Jillani.

India's Environment News Service reported Chemicals and Fertilizers
Minister Srikant Kumar Jena told Parliament the DRDO will dispose of the
Bhopal factory waste by incineration at the Borkhedi facility near Nagpur.
The article cited the NEERI report assessing the environmental situation
at the defunct factory, which credited contamination of soil and
groundwater to chemical disposal from 1969 to 1984, and not to the 1984
gas accident. There was no mention of the court or regulatory issues
regarding the disposal.

IBNS reported the Bhopal NGOs burnt an effigy representing "Corruption in
medical care, rehabilitation and compensation disbursement" in solidarity
with Anna Hazare's opposition to the GoI's Jan Lokpal anti-corruption
bill. The Bhopal protest took place in front of the former UCIL factory.
In Mumbai, Hazare burnt copies of the proposed legislation. This issue
does not appear to involve action against Dow.
