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.

Dear Ibrahim,
Thank you so much for agreeing to make the time for me. I'm really
looking forward to familiarizing myself with your country. Nuh and I had
a very lively exchange last week over coffee and he said you would be
perfect to talk to.
I haven't finalized my plans between Istanbul and Ankara yet, but I can
plan to be in Ankara Wed, March 10 to meet you. Please let me know if
your schedule changes ... I know how busy you must be. Again, thank you
for making the time.
Looking forward to meeting you.
All the best,

Dear Ibrahim,
I hope this message finds you well. The reason of my e-mail is to
introduce Reva Bhalla to you. Ms. Bhalla works for Stratfor as the
Director of Research and has recently been working on Turkey and
the Middle East as part of her responsibilities. Her expertise on
many areas stretching from energy issues to Afghanistan is
impressive. She will be in Turkey in between 5-15 March and want to
see people who work on foreign policy, domestic politics and energy
isues. I advised her to see you since you focus on all of these
issues. I know your schedule is extremely tight but it would be
great if you can find some time to meet her.
Dear Reva,
Mr. Kalin is Chief Advisor to PM ErdoA:Yan on Foreign Policy. As he
was the former Director General of SETA and one of the leading great
intellectuals of Turkey who has international reputation, he has
expertise on many issues that we have discussed. I think having a
meeting with Mr. Kalin would be one of the best things that can
happen to you in Turkey.
I let you arrange your meeting (hopefully), and would love to hear
from you soon,
best regards,
