Wikileaks Emails, WikiLeaks is publishing a massive trove of leaked emails from the global intelligence company Stratfor, shedding light on the inner workings of the Texas-based think tank.
The online anti-secrecy group says it has more than five million Stratfor emails and it is putting them out in collaboration with two dozen international media organisations.
The small selection published to WikiLeaks’ website so far gave a rare look at the daily routine at a private intel firm. One described a $US6000-a-month ($A5625) payment made to a Middle Eastern source, another carried bits of gossip dropped by a retired spook, and many were filled with off-colour office banter.
An initial examination of the emails carried out by AP turned up a mix of the innocuous and embarrassing, but WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange promised more explosive material in the coming weeks.
“What we have discovered is a company that is a private intelligence Enron,” Assange told London’s Frontline Club, referring to the Texas energy giant whose spectacular bankruptcy turned it into a byword for corporate malfeasance.
Assange accused Stratfor of funnelling money to informants through offshore tax havens, monitoring activist groups on behalf of major multinationals and making investments based on its secret intelligence. “Stratfor is simply out of control,” he said.
