In a statement released on Monday Wikileaks said the documents would reveal 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,” the statement said.
Stratfor, a Texas-based firm that describes itself as a source of geopolitical analysis to corporate and government clients was targeted by hackers affiliated with the ‘hacktivist’ group known as Anonymous in December.
Anonymous posted online the names, emails and credit card numbers of thousands of Stratfor subscribers, including those of former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger and Vice President Dan Quayle.
“Here we have a private intelligence firm, relying on informants from the US government, foreign intelligence agencies with questionable reputations, and journalists,” WikiLeaks’ founder,Assange said.
Stratfor subscribers include major corporations, military officials and international government agencies. The US weekly business magazine Barron’s has likened Stratfor to a “shadow CIA.”
Australian-born Assange, 40, is currently on conditional bail in Britain and fights extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations, which he denies.
Henry Kissinger: Chaos sets perfect opportunity for Obama to create ‘New World Order’
Policy guru says global upheaval presents ‘great opportunity’
Henry Kissinger was a Nobel Peace Prize winner and former secretary of state under President Nixon. He also served under the Ford and Reagan administrations. Kissinger, named by Bush as the chairman of the Sept. 11 investigatory commission, on January 6th at the commencement of Obama’s administration, said in this CNBC video interview:
“…conflicts across the globe and an international respect for Barack Obama have created the perfect setting for establishment of “a New World Order.”
It is rather scary that US top brass view chaos as a useful opportunity to gain world dominance.
