Wikileaks Strafor, The private intelligence firm Stratfor called the release of some of its e-mails by WikiLeaks a “deplorable, unfortunate — and illegal — breach of privacy.”
“In December, thieves compromised Stratfor’s data systems and stole a large number of company e-mails, along with other private information of Stratfor readers, subscribers and employees,” it said Sunday in a Facebook posting. “Those stolen e-mails apparently will be published by WikiLeaks.”
The Austin, Texas-based firm added, “Some of the e-mails 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.”
In a statement, WikiLeaks said it had begun publishing the e-mails, which are dated between July 2004 and December and exceed 5 million in number. “They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations … and government agencies,” the statement says. “The e-mails show Stratfor’s web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.”
WikiLeaks, a website that facilitates the leaking of confidential information, says the documents will be released in coming weeks through a network of more than 25 news outlets and activist groups.
