Back in the day, we would have been planning his (and Chavez's) helicopter 'accident,'” wrote VP Fred Burton, a former deputy chief of the State Department's counter terrorism division, in an email regarding Bolivian President Evo Morales.
In the same email thread regarding a State Department source's “take on [Bolivian President Evo] Morales,” Stratfor operative Korena Zucha calls Morales a “4th grade educated, narco-trafficking, murderous thug” whose actions are protected by the “left-leaning MSM [Mainstream] media.”
Stratfor's Middle East analyst Bayless Parsley, in an email chat exchange with the company's Director of Analysis, suggests that she is having sex in exchange for information and jokingly stated she should be thankful she wasn't sent to Africa because the “risk of AIDS is too high.”

"The sheer amount of destruction we wreaked on Statfor’s servers is the digital equivalent of a nuclear bomb: leveling their systems in such a way that they will never be able to recover. We rooted box after box on their intranet: dumping their mysql databases, stealing their private ssh keys, and copying hundreds of employee mail spools. For weeks we used and abused their customer credit card information (which was all stored in cleartext in their mysql databases), eventually dumping all 75,000 credit cards and 860,000 md5-hashed passwords of their “private client list”. And if dumping everything on their employees and clients wasn’t enough to guarantee their bankruptcy, we laid waste to their webserver, their mail server, their development server, their clearspace and srm intranet portal and backup archives in such a way that ensures they won’t be coming back online anytime soon."
These five (currently George Friedman, Meredith Friedman, Fred Burton, Scott Stewart and Peter Zeihan) constitute the Intelligence Council that oversees the strategic direction of the Intelligence Group). Others may be included in the group permanently or on an ad hoc basis at the discretion of the Chief Intelligence Officer. The purpose of the Intelligence Council is to advise the Chief Intelligence Officer and to implement his decisions
NEW: Hmm, could this be another STRATFOR mail, from today? CEO George Friedman announces his resignation: http:///w0uQ1XX1 #GIFiles
It's growing very fast because of phenomena such as terrorism, industrial espionage and insider trading
