The Global Intelligence Files- Subject Directory of Leaked Stratfor Emails Powered By Docstoc
					   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.

   LONDON—Today, Monday 27 February, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence
Files – more than five million emails from the Texas-headquartered "global intelligence"
company Stratfor. The emails date from 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 Defense Intelligence Agency.
The emails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment-laundering techniques
and psychological methods, for example :

   "[Y]ou have to take control of him. Control means financial, sexual or psychological control...
This is intended to start our conversation on your next phase" – CEO George Friedman to
Stratfor analyst Reva Bhalla on 6 December 2011, on how to exploit an Israeli intelligence
informant providing information on the medical condition of the President of Venezuala, Hugo
Chavez.

  The material contains privileged information about the US government’s attacks against
Julian Assange and WikiLeaks and Stratfor’s own attempts to subvert WikiLeaks. There are
more than 4,000 emails mentioning WikiLeaks or Julian Assange. The emails also expose the
revolving door that operates in private intelligence companies in the United States. Government
and diplomatic sources from around the world give Stratfor advance knowledge of global politics
and events in exchange for money. The Global Intelligence Files exposes how Stratfor has
recruited a global network of informants who are paid via Swiss banks accounts and pre-paid
credit cards. Stratfor has a mix of covert and overt informants, which includes government
employees, embassy staff and journalists around the world.

   The material shows how a private intelligence agency works, and how they target individuals
for their corporate and government clients. For example, Stratfor monitored and analysed the
online activities of Bhopal activists, including the "Yes Men", for the US chemical giant Dow
Chemical. The activists seek redress for the 1984 Dow Chemical/Union Carbide gas disaster in
Bhopal, India. The disaster led to thousands of deaths, injuries in more than half a million
people, and lasting environmental damage.

   Stratfor has realised that its routine use of secret cash bribes to get information from insiders
is risky. In August 2011, Stratfor CEO George Friedman confidentially told his employees : "We
are retaining a law firm to create a policy for Stratfor on the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. I
don’t plan to do the perp walk and I don’t want anyone here doing it either."

   Stratfor’s use of insiders for intelligence soon turned into a money-making scheme of
questionable legality. The emails show that in 2009 then-Goldman Sachs Managing Director
Shea Morenz and Stratfor CEO George Friedman hatched an idea to "utilise the intelligence" it
was pulling in from its insider network to start up a captive strategic investment fund. CEO
George Friedman explained in a confidential August 2011 document, marked DO NOT SHARE
OR DISCUSS : "What StratCap will do is use our Stratfor’s intelligence and analysis to trade in
a range of geopolitical instruments, particularly government bonds, currencies and the like". The
emails show that in 2011 Goldman Sach’s Morenz invested "substantially" more than $4million
and joined Stratfor’s board of directors. Throughout 2011, a complex offshore share structure
extending as far as South Africa was erected, designed to make StratCap appear to be legally
independent. But, confidentially, Friedman told StratFor staff : "Do not think of StratCap as an
outside organisation. It will be integral... It will be useful to you if, for the sake of convenience,
you think of it as another aspect of Stratfor and Shea as another executive in Stratfor... we are
already working on mock portfolios and trades". StratCap is due to launch in 2012.

   The Stratfor emails reveal a company that cultivates close ties with US government agencies
and employs former US government staff. It is preparing the 3-year Forecast for the
Commandant of the US Marine Corps, and it trains US marines and "other government
intelligence agencies" in "becoming government Stratfors". Stratfor’s Vice-President for
Intelligence, Fred Burton, was formerly a special agent with the US State Department’s
Diplomatic Security Service and was their Deputy Chief of the counterterrorism division. Despite
the governmental ties, Stratfor and similar companies operate in complete secrecy with no
political oversight or accountability. Stratfor claims that it operates "without ideology, agenda or
national bias", yet the emails reveal private intelligence staff who align themselves closely with
US government policies and channel tips to the Mossad – including through an information mule
in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Yossi Melman, who conspired with Guardian journalist David
Leigh to secretly, and in violation of WikiLeaks’ contract with the Guardian, move WikiLeaks US
diplomatic cables to Israel.

  Ironically, considering the present circumstances, Stratfor was trying to get into what it called
the leak-focused "gravy train" that sprung up after WikiLeaks’ Afghanistan disclosures :

  "[Is it] possible for us to get some of that ’leak-focused’ gravy train ? This is an obvious fear
sale, so that’s a good thing. And we have something to offer that the IT security companies
don’t, mainly our focus on counter-intelligence and surveillance that Fred and Stick know better
than anyone on the planet... Could we develop some ideas and procedures on the idea of ´leak-
focused’ network security that focuses on preventing one’s own employees from leaking
sensitive information... In fact, I’m not so sure this is an IT problem that requires an IT solution."

  Like WikiLeaks’ diplomatic cables, much of the significance of the emails will be revealed over
the coming weeks, as our coalition and the public search through them and discover
connections. Readers will find that whereas large numbers of Stratfor’s subscribers and clients
work in the US military and intelligence agencies, Stratfor gave a complimentary membership to
the controversial Pakistan general Hamid Gul, former head of Pakistan’s ISI intelligence service,
who, according to US diplomatic cables, planned an IED attack on international forces in
Afghanistan in 2006. Readers will discover Stratfor’s internal email classification system that
codes correspondence according to categories such as ’alpha’, ’tactical’ and ’secure’. The
correspondence also contains code names for people of particular interest such as ’Hizzies’
(members of Hezbollah), or ’Adogg’ (Mahmoud Ahmedinejad).

   Stratfor did secret deals with dozens of media organisations and journalists – from Reuters to
the Kiev Post. The list of Stratfor’s "Confederation Partners", whom Stratfor internally referred to
as its "Confed Fuck House" are included in the release. While it is acceptable for journalists to
swap information or be paid by other media organisations, because Stratfor is a private
intelligence organisation that services governments and private clients these relationships are
corrupt or corrupting.

  WikiLeaks has also obtained Stratfor’s list of informants and, in many cases, records of its
payoffs, including $1,200 a month paid to the informant "Geronimo" , handled by Stratfor’s
Former State Department agent Fred Burton.
  WikiLeaks has built an investigative partnership with more than 25 media organisations and
activists to inform the public about this huge body of documents. The organisations were
provided access to a sophisticated investigative database developed by WikiLeaks and together
with WikiLeaks are conducting journalistic evaluations of these emails. Important revelations
discovered using this system will appear in the media in the coming weeks, together with the
gradual release of the source documents.

CURRENT WIKILEAKS STATUS:

  An extrajudicial blockade imposed by VISA, MasterCard, PayPal, Bank of America, and
Western Union that is designed to destroy WikiLeaks has been in place since December 2010.
The EU Commission is considering whether it will open a formal investigation, but two lawsuits
have been filed (http://wikileaks.org/Banking-Blocka...). There are also other ways to donate
(https://shop.wikileaks.org/donate). It is legal to donate, including in the United States. The US
Treasury has publicly stated that that there are no grounds to place WikiLeaks on a US
government blacklist.

   WikiLeaks Founder and Publisher Julian Assange has not been charged with any crime in
any country. Four prosecutors are currently trying to charge him under the Espionage Act of
1917 before a closed Grand Jury in Virginia, in the United States. Julian Assange has been
detained for 447 days (10,728 hours) since Dec 7, 2010, without charge, and he is currently
awaiting a decision from the UK Supreme Court on extradition to Sweden
(http://www.justiceforassange.com/Su...). The decision is expected in March. The decision on
whether he will be onwardly extradited to the US lies in the hands of the Swedish Executive, but
Sweden’s Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has refused to state whether he will protect Assange
from a politically motivated extradition to the United States (http://justice4assange.com/US-
Extra... ).

   The Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt has repeatedly attacked WikiLeaks this week in a
bizarre manner (http://ferrada-noli.blogspot.com/20... ).

   An alleged WikiLeaks US military source, Bradley Manning, has been in pre-trial detention for
639 days (http://bradleymanning.org/ ). His arraignment took place on 24 February 2012. In
December 2011, Manning’s attorney revealed in the preliminary hearing that the US
government is attempting to enter a plea deal with Manning in order to "go after" Assange.
Manning has 22 charges against him, including violating the Espionage Act of 1917 and aiding
the enemy. Manning has deferred entering a plea. Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are legally
represented in the Manning hearings by the US Centre for Constitutional Rights
(http://ccrjustice.org/ ). WikiLeaks was denied full access to Manning’s hearing after appeal
(http://ccrjustice.org/newsroom/pres... ). WikiLeaks put out a statement relating to Manning’s
trial ahead of the Article 32 Hearing : (http://www.wikileaks.org/Statement-... ).

  The alleged WikiLeaks-supporting hacktivists known as the "PayPal 14" were arrested in
2011 following co-ordinated online demonstrations against the financial services companies that
are carrying out the unlawful financial blockade on WikiLeaks (VISA, MasterCard, Paypal,
Western Union, Bank of America). They are represented by attorney Stanley Cohen and will go
before court in May 2012 (http://www.cyberguerrilla.org/?p=4644 ).
  WikiLeaks is about to launch a distributed, encrypted "Facebook for revolutionaries"
(https://wlfriends.org/ ).

   Julian Assange is currently directing interviews, from house arrest, for a programme on the
future of the world that is syndicated to various broadcasters. The first show will be broadcast in
March (http://www.wikileaks.org/New-Assang... )

HOW TO READ THE DATA

  This is a glossary and information on how to understand the internal terms and codes used by
Stratfor in their emails. It is not a complete list. We call on the public to add to this list by
tweeting #gifind

  To see a list of the terms George Friedman considers useful for his staff to know please
download this PDF : The Stratfor Glossary of Useful, Baffling and Strange Intelligence Terms.



  OPEN SOURCE VS. "COVERT"



  As you browse through the content, you will notice that a large set of it is what is classified as
"open source" (subject lines which include [OS]). These are basically email threads that start
with someone posting a published and accessible source, such as news sites, and follow with
commentary by the staff. In one of the emails, Joseph Nye is referenced saying :

  "Open source intelligence is the outer pieces of the jigsaw puzzle, without which one can
neither begin nor complete the puzzle"



  CODES IN SUBJECT LINES



  Many of the emails have codes in the subject lines as well as in the body, to make it easier for
the staff to "quickly identify when we need to go back and have a look-see." [*] :

  Examples : INSIGHT - COUNTRY - Subject - SOURCE CODE INSIGHT - CHINA - Trains
and planes - CN1000

 Please refer to the glossary for the code names of subject and country tags, as well as
mailing list names.



  SOURCE CODES
   A lot of interesting stuff comes from "sources". Sources are either informal contacts or people
they have a formal relationship with. The IDs for sources have the format of CN120 or ME001.
In terms of the character part, it refers to a region or a country :

 A) Regions ME - Middle East region EU - European Union EE - Eastern Europe LA- South
America SA- South Asia

  B) Countries or Orgs CN - China PK - Pakistan IN- India ML - Malaysia VN - Vietnam NP-
Nepal

  US - United States VZ - Venezuela CO- Colombia BR-Brazil NC- Nicaragua MX- Mexico
CL/CH- Chile AR- Argentina PY- Paraguay BOL- Bolivia

  RU - Russia UA - Ukraine GE - Georgia TJ - Tajikstan MD - Moldova BG -Bulgaria CR/CZ-
Czech Republic PT- Portugal

  ZA - South Africa AO - Angola SO - Somalia NG- Nigeria CD- DR Congo CI- Cote D’Ivoire
ZW- Zimbabwe ZM- Zambia RW- Rwanda KE- Kenya ET- Ethiopia SD -Sudan MA- Morocco
SN- Senegal GN- Guinea SL- Sierra Leone

   IR - Iran IQ- Iraq IL or IS- Israel SA- Saudi Arabia SY- Syria KU- Kuwait Y or YN - Yemen HZ
- Hizbollah TK - Turkey LN- Lebanon LY- Libya UAE- UAE EG- Egypt (etc.)

  C) Odd codes OCH - Old China hand, a finance insider. Stick - Scott Stewart, high level
employee Z’s - Zetas, Mexican drug gang



  INSIGHTS FORMAT



  When "insights" are sent, they usually have the following header information :

  SOURCE : The ID of the source, say CN123. Sometimes this is left "no source ID" when it’s a
new source.

  ATTRIBUTION : How the source is to be attributed, i.e. "Source in the pharma distribution
industry in China", Stratfor source, etc.

  SOURCE DESCRIPTION : Describes the source, for example : "Source works with Mercator
Pharmaceutical Solutions, distributing pharma to developing countries." These include concrete
details on the source for internal consumption so that there’s a better understanding on the
source’s background and ability to make assessments on the ground.

  PUBLICATION : Yes or No. If the option is yes it doesn’t mean that it would be published, but
rather that it _can_ be published.

  SOURCE RELIABILITY : A/B
   SOURCE RELIABILITY : A-F, A being the best and F being the worst. This grades the
turnaround time of this source in responding to requests.

  ITEM CREDIBILITY : 1-10, 1 being the best and 10 being the worst (we may change the
range here in the future). this changes a lot based on the info provided. 1 is "you can take this to
the bank" and 10 would be an example of maybe - "this is a totally ridiculous rumor but
something that is spreading on the ground"

  SPECIAL HANDLING : often this is "none" but it may be something like, "if you use this we
need to be sure not to mention the part about XXX in the publication" or any other special notes

  SOURCE HANDLER : the person who can take follow-up questions and communicate with
the source.

  ATTACHED DOCUMENTS



  Attached documents can be searched by Filename or part of the file name. Preliminary
searches for filenames using the terms ’lists’, ’source lists’ or ’insight lists’, coupled with the
names of source handlers (e.g. Reva for Turkey, Brazil or Venezuela) produced Excel lists of
the source names, contact info and source descriptions which correspond to the source codes
(e.g. ME1315).



  Sourcing Criteria



  The following are the proposed criteria for analyzing both sources and insight.

  1. Source Timeliness 2. Source Accessibility/Position 3. Source Availability 4. Insight
Credibility 5. Insight Uniqueness

  Source Timeliness : This is the average grade on how long this particular source turns around
tasks and replies to inquiries. It may change but is more of a static indicator.

   Source Accessibility : Accessibility weighs the source’s position to have certain knowledge in
a particular field. So, for example, if we are looking for energy insight and the source is an
official in an energy agency, his or her Accessibility would be ranked higher than if s/he was a
banker giving insight on energy. While we would welcome a banker giving his/her insight, a
good source may not have a high accessibility ranking if they aren’t in a position to offer reliable
insight on a certain topic. The source’s access to decision makers, specific training or education
in the desired topic area, specific knowledge of events/situations/incidents can also be
considered.
  Source Availability : How often can we go to this source ? Are they someone we can tap daily,
weekly, monthly, yearly ?

   Insight Credibility : This is our assessment of the veracity of the insight offered. Here we need
to consider whether or not this is disinformation, speculation, correct data or knowledgeable
interpretation. Any bias that the source is displaying or any specific viewpoints or personal
background the source is using in the assessment provided should also be considered.

  Insight Uniqueness : Is this insight something that could be found in OS ? If it is but the
analysis of the information is unique, it would still have a high uniqueness ranking. Or, if it is
concrete data, but is something that is only offered to industry insiders, i.e. stats that aren’t
published but that aren’t secret, it would still have a high uniqueness score.

  Scoring

  All of the above factors will be scored on an A-F scale, with A being exemplary and F being
useless.

   Source Timeliness : A = turnaround within 24 hours B = turnaround within 48 hours C =
turnaround within a week D = turnaround within a month F = lucky to receive a reply at all

   Source Accessibility : A = Someone with intimate knowledge of the particular insight B =
Someone within the industry but whose knowledge of the topic is not exact (e.g. if we were
asking someone in the oil industry about natural gas) C = Someone working close to the
industry who doesn’t have intimate knowledge of a particular topic but can speak to it
intelligently (e.g. a financial consultant asked to gauge the movement of the stock market) D =
Someone who may know a country but doesn’t have any concrete insight into a particular topic
but can offer rumors and discussions heard on the topic F = Someone who has no knowledge of
a particular industry at all

  Source Availability : A = Available pretty much whenever B = Can tap around once a week C
= Can tap about once a month D = Can tap only several times a year F = Very limited
availability

  Insight Credibility : A = We can take this information to the bank B = Good insight but maybe
not entirely precise C = Insight is only partially true D = There may be some interest in the
insight, but it is mostly false or just pure speculation. F = Likely to be disinformation

   Insight Uniqueness : A = Can’t be found anywhere else B = Can only be found in limited
circles C = Insight can be found in OS, but the source has an interesting take/analysis D =
Insight can be found in OS, but still may not be common knowledge F = Insight is accessible in
numerous locations

  Daily Insight Scoring

   SOURCE : code ATTRIBUTION : this is what we should say if we use this info in a
publication, e.g. STRATFOR source/source in the medical industry/source on the ground, etc
SOURCE DESCRIPTION : this is where we put the more concrete details of the source for our
internal consumption so we can better understand the source’s background and ability to make
the assessments in the insight. PUBLICATION : Yes or no. If you put yes it doesn’t mean that
we will publish it, but only that we can publish it. SOURCE RELIABILITY : A-F. A being the best
and F being the worst. This grades the source overall - access to information, timeliness,
availability, etc. In short, how good is this source ? ITEM CREDIBILITY : A-F. A = we can take
this info to the bank ; B = Good insight but maybe not entirely precise ; C = Insight is only
partially true ; D = There may be some interest in the insight, but it is mostly false or just pure
speculation ; F = Likely to be disinformation. SPECIAL HANDLING : often this is "none" but it
may be something like, "if you use this we need to be sure not to mention the part about XXX in
the publication" or any other special notes SOURCE HANDLER : the person who can take
follow-up questions and communicate with the source.
