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.

Hi Pascal, thanks for the response and the contact with Nick. Please let
me know if I can ever provide you guys anything.

Nick, no worries on that long-winded question. I'm just looking at
Yaradua's next move that his consolidation of control over the military
chiefs will allow him to make.

Best regards,

Hi Mark, I'm probably not best placed to answer your query as I've just
come back from leave, but I'm copying in our Nigeria chief correspondent
Nick Tattersall who should be able to give you a better read than me.

Let's keep in touch.

Dear Pascal:

We chatted on the phone a few months back, and I wanted to get in touch
with you with a question on Nigeria, following the sacking by Yaradua of
the military service chiefs. It looks to be a more or less normal
leadership transition move. Even though it came roughly 16 months after
Yaradua came into power, this is still quick compared to the years it took
Putin or Merkel to put their people into top military leadership

Question, though: Yaradua can do this to help see through his own
preferred policies. He's publicly a man for democracy, transparency, the
rule of law, energy sector reconstruction, Niger Delta resolution. But is
there a single intent he's aiming for (besides distancing himself from

Thanks for keeping in touch.

My best,
