    WikiLeaks Publishes 5 Million 'Shadow CIA' E-Mails

    WikiLeaks Publishes 5 Million 'Shadow CIA' E-Mails | Common Dreams

    WikiLeaks announced tonight that it is publishing documents it is calling "The Global Intelligence Files" which includes over 5 million e-mails from the US-based "Global Intelligence" company Stratfor, the Global Intelligence Company described by Barons as the Shadow CIA, according to a statement the organization released Sunday night.


    WikiLeaks has partnered with 25 media organizations to publish the documents including the McClatchy newspapers and Rolling Stone.


    "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."
    These files are important because they reveal the growing multi-billion dollar intelligence industry that allows non-government organizations like multinationals to gain information about private citizens, activist organizations, and to precision-manipulate the political arena. It also reveals the ways in which the corporate media are actively trying to manipulate the public or omit crucial information.

    Our democracy is under direct attack and Wikileaks has done us a great service by publishing this information.

    I love Stratfor and have read them for years. They provide excellent analysis for foreign affairs and should be read by more people. Much of this is alarmist blabbering left over from when "Anonymous" hacked them, took customer (not high profile accounts..regular people) credit cards, and bought video games and other electronics, gained access to our email accounts (sending out phony emails in the name of the company), meanwhile fronting this as an attempt to expose corruption and giving high-profile doners' cash to causes like the Red Cross. Frankly, I support them fully. I see this as yet another attempt by a select group of advocacy organizations like Wikileaks and hackers to demean intelligence work and punish those who do not agree with their views.

    I'll bet they do not show anything of the sort that is being claimed.

    The spying on activists is just sad.

    Wikileaks does what journalism should do in a democracy.

    No, if anything the guys who find the information are the ones doing the "service". All that WikiLeaks does is offer webhosting for the info and then take all the credit even though they do nothing themselves.

    Yes, I'm sure the anonymous sources are raging at not receiving 'the credit.'
    "I do not claim that every incident in the history of empire can be explained in directly economic terms. Economic interests are filtered through a political process, policies are implemented by a complex state apparatus, and the whole system generates its own momentum."

    How do they take the credit when they say they have sources?

    People offer heaps of praise to Wikileaks even though any website could have hosted the content, the praise should go to the guys who deliver the content (even though a lot of them are just traitors to begin with).
