This is an old story

They started releasing them last month, twenty or so a day. I don't know when they'll just dump the lot. You might be interested in this one, it was marked ** internal use only - Pls do not forward **:

Curiously, there are whispers of McCain being set up by the Cheney/Bush crowd, because McCain was never liked by either. Some are shocked he did so well. Coupled with serious errors in tactics. Some made no sense. For example, the Hispanics in Florida loved Palin but his camp would never send her there when easy money was to be had. My guy said Rove and company want to bring in someone they can control next go around. McCain was not controllable. Jeb Bush's name is being discussed.


why I have the feeling those

why I have the feeling those emails would would just reinforce the propaganda we are served daily by the US Gov?

A while ago I subscribed for free to Stratfor but their stupidity and lies where so unbearable I had to unsubscribed after just 3 days. Yes, they use some writers with military experience so their articles sounds very professional, but other then that Stratfor has less credibility then National Enquirer, they are clearly a Pentagon propaganda tool.

more than enough motivation

This is old news....so February! Really they had more than enough motivation to go after Anonymous. And, without going back and looking it up I think they caught the first guy before Statfor was hacked. That guy then snitched on his friends. You can go read the chat logs of some of that. It is fascinating. But for every one jailed 100 more fill in ;-)
It may be they set the guys up so they would leak something to wikileaks for more evidence against wikileaks.

Some interesting stuff coming out of the emails but you won't find it on MSM! Things like they have already have a sealed indictment for Assange, that Osama Bin Laden may have been flown to Delaware and not immediately dumped in the ocean, tactics against the Occupy Movement.....

doesn't look strange to you

doesn't look strange to you that those "brilliant rebel hackers" NEVER present any important information? They never seem able to unfold something like "Climategate" or the case of US Gov. selling guns to drug dealers in Mexico...somehow they only uncover stuff like "Putin was called Alpha dog", "Gaddafi is crazy and rich","fears of Iran having nukes", "Bin Laden body brought in US soil"...just stuff to ignite resentment against the US enemies and reinforce the Pentagon propaganda.

In my opinion both Anonycrap and Wikishiat are just Gov. tools, just look how much attention MSM gives them...clearly is not right.

WOW, This is going to be MORE than big!

I'll bet Fox News is at the top of the list, and RUSH too!

The bombshell release promises to reveal information concerning “secret cash bribes,” “the US government’s attacks against Julian Assange and WikiLeaks,” “Stratfor’s own attempts to subvert WikiLeaks,” and “secret deals with dozens of media organisations and journalists.”

… The emails 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,
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.
Stratfor has realised that its routine use of secret cash bribes to get information from insiders is risky...
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...
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...

"...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...
