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.

Hey Izabella!
You are actually free to take what you want over the holidays between now
and the new year...
but the 'for sure' days off are Dec 25-26 & Jan 1-2.
Just let us know what you want to take off and we'll work around it.
Please take off that time in Jan & Feb to see your husband!! Send him our
love and we are so glad he is safe and able to come home. Enjoy your time
I am in Scotland right now (my fiance's christmas) and my christmas is in
Jan during the orthodox ones, when I'll spend them with my own family.
Have a wonderful holidays.

Hi Lauren,

Hope all is well and you are looking forward to a nice rest during the
coming holidays.
There are a few things I would like to ask you before you guys 'shut

1. What are the non-working days for Strafor (Dec 24/25 and Jan 1..)?

2. I will be visiting my mother in Budapest from Dec 24 to Jan 03 but
will be able to work as usual.

3. From January 10 to February 10 I will be in the U.S. and Canada, due
to family affairs. I live alone in Skopje, while my husband is working
for the US government for some time now (in Kabul for the past two
years) and he has some meetings in Washington D.C., then he will be free
- on holiday - and our daughter is getting married in San Francisco, so
we will be there from 14 to 28 January; then off to Toronto to take care
of our nephews fro two weeks (their grandma will be away).
Unfortunately I will not be able to work, but will be able to follow
more or less what is going on in the world.
Hope this is all right with you and will not cause any significant

Pls let me know.

Wishing you and the entire team happy holidays!
