I'm thinking of becoming a member of stratfor. I already get their newsletters. They claim to be a nonpartisan source of news. How reliable are they? Is anyone here a member? What are they like?

I check with STRATFOR ona weekly basis, sme times daily, and also ge the newsletter. I've never found a report from them to be less than premium material, and would rank them in the top 1% in themarket for reliability.

The GWOT forum, has a thread called The ATSer~Global Terrorism Fusion Center, and a large majority of my links are from them. Great service with awsome credibility.

They are in my opinion one of the top five, pubilically available groups who cover material you will have trouble finding elsewhere.

That is just me, but they have never done me wrong and their reputation speaks for itself.

& 5 stars for STRATFOR, from me.

Personally never heard of them, but their list of steady customers seems to indicate that they are fairly accurate.

I have heard some one in their upper strata, George Friedman, give some observations on the Dave Ross Show in Seattle about the possibilities of a war with Iran. It was before the election, but he felt the possibility was low... He seemed to be intelligently analytical I liked the way he came to his conclusions and his evidence.
Friedman has described himself as "a conservative Republican." "Up until 1989 I would have considered myself a classic conservative, my primary concern being the Soviet Union and anti-communism." "One of the things, I think, as a conservative I believe is there's a constancy in the human condition. There isn't dramatic changes, millennial changes, where everything is solved and we live happily in peace". [1]

Having parents who had been Holocaust survivors and also fled from Communism, Friedman developed "a kind of deep and abiding hatred of totalitarianism."

that said he seemed reasonable.area51

Very concise overviews of developing regional situations. Provides background that the mainstream media fails to include. I do not have the background to evaluate their forecasting models, but I believe that they provide enough information to gauge the situation on the ground.

Hadn't seen if before, just looked at it and I really dig it.

Thanks for the recommendation I'll definitely bookmark it.

Yeah, since this thread I got a subscription to it and now I'm hooked. I love getting all of their in-depth reports through emails. They get the news before the MSM does. They're superb. However, if you want an opinionated view on the issue, I would recommend looking elsewhere.
