Latest News In the early hours of Monday, Wikileaks began the process of releasing some of the 5 million mails taken in Anonymous's December 2011 hack of Stratfor, an intelligence and analysis company. In the "Global Intelligence Files", Wikileaks says that although the company portrays itself as an intelligence publisher it provides confidential intelligence services to "Dow Chemical, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon" and US government agencies such as the Department of Homeland Security, US Marines and US Defense Intelligence Agency.

Wikileaks also says there are 4,000 emails that include "privileged information" concerning the US government and its actions regarding Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the organisation and "Stratfor's own attempts to subvert Wikileaks". None of these 4,000 mails were in the initial dump of 167 emails. Other revelations include that CEO George Friedman was working with Goldman Sachs to create a hedge fund, StratCap, which would exploit Stratfor's intelligence. Goldman Sachs has invested $4 million in the company and took a seat on the Stratfor board in 2011; the fund is due to launch this year.
