947 news articles linked in Google as of now. The coverage came along slowly though. This happened last night, where there was only about 20 linked stories.

I don't think it is something MSM can ignore however, to big of a story. Like the old wikileaks stories, I imagine they will hit it hard, fast and let it fade as soon as possible. Unless there is something in the emails about people the don't like.

Press release from Statfor

www.prnewswire.com...



Below is a statement from Stratfor on release of company emails by Wikileaks:
In December, thieves compromised Stratfor's data systems and stole a large number of company emails, along with other private information of Stratfor readers, subscribers and employees. Those stolen emails apparently will be published by Wikileaks. This is a deplorable, unfortunate — and illegal — breach of privacy.
Some of the emails may be forged or altered to include inaccuracies; some may be authentic. We will not validate either. Nor will we explain the thinking that went into them. Having had our property stolen, we will not be victimized twice by submitting to questioning about them.
For subscribers and friends of Stratfor, we stress that the disclosure of these emails does not mean that there has been another hack of Stratfor's computer and data systems. Stratfor's data systems, which we have worked hard to rebuild since the December hack, remain secure and protected.

Hopefully this is just a taste, and there is some really damning stuff going to be released. It would be nice to see some corrupt heads that deserve it roll for a change. I am not holding out hope that it's gonna happen, I would rather be pleasantly surprised, than let down in disappointment, metaphorically speaking of course.

Not a lawyer either however I would think anyone in their right mind would want justice for someone who purposely withheld a murderer do we need "laws" to determine the wrong in that?

I am under the thinking that there might be some fraudulent info coming at us also, but 5 million emails? Don't think it's all fake.

Still waiting, of course,


Well you'd have to be seriously dedicated to forge 5 million e-mails, if that is the true number. I wouldn't suggest that it is all fake; the question should be why some of it is.

yes i would agree some of them are quite funny and they are just conversational banter between individuals who seem to work for an intelligence gathering agency....but when on looks at the names...the sender and the reciever and the dates and put them together with issues being discussed....it seems to fit into a chronological timeline.....so what i am gathering from you is...hoax......or am i wrong there.


What we can be sure of is that STRATFOR was hacked. The hackers (who are they?) claim that material was appropriated by them and we assume that this is true. If this is true that is not to say that what Wikileaks received was what the hackers appropriated, if you catch my drift.

Some of you may find this interesting. George Friedman, January, on the hack:

"The consequence of this will not be a glorious anarchy in the spirit of Guy Fawkes, but rather a massive repression. I think this is a pity. That's why I wonder who the hackers actually are and what cause they serve. I am curious as to whether they realize the whirlwind they are sowing, and whether they, in fact, are trying to generate the repression they say they oppose."

There was a member, who was banned for posting a partial phone number for the guy, who texted him last night. Sean (stratfor) apparently texted back about this particular email saying something like "just wait, there will be more".

Take it for what it's worth. But it's all a Cluster F right now. Cant WAIT for goldman sachs

Press relase from"Yesmen"

theyesmen.org...


Many of the Bhopal-related emails, addressed from Stratfor to Dow and Union Carbide public relations directors, reveal concern that, in the lead-up to the 25th anniversary of the Bhopal disaster, the Bhopal issue might be expanded into an effective systemic critique of corporate rule, and speculate at length about why this hasn't yet happened—providing a fascinating window onto what at least some corporate types fear most from activists.

"[Bhopal activists] have made a slight nod toward expanded activity, but never followed through on it—the idea of 'other Bhopals' that were the fault of Dow or others," mused Joseph de Feo, who is listed in one online source as a "Briefer" for Stratfor.

"Maybe the Yes Men were the pinnacle. They made an argument in their way on their terms—that this is a corporate problem and a part of the a [sic] larger whole," wrote Kathleen Morson, Stratfor's Director of Policy Analysis.

"With less than a month to go [until the 25th anniversary], you'd think that the major players—especially Amnesty—would have branched out from Bhopal to make a broader set of issues. I don't see any evidence of it," wrote Bart Mongoven, Stratfor's Vice President, in November 2004. "If they can't manage to use the 25th anniversary to broaden the issue, they probably won't be able to.
