WikiLeaks Begins Releasing 200,000 Stratfor Files on US Elections!

Well, boys and girls, it looks like the US elections finally became interesting!  After weeks of blathering nonsense and insulting behavior toward the working class by both of the anointed candidates of the US capitalist class, the US election is about to heat up a bit, thanks to WikiLeaks.

Today, the official WikiLeaks website announced the release of a new tranche of the “Global Intelligence Files” – documents and emails that somehow fell into the hands of the world’s best whistleblowing service.  Actually, calling them whistleblowers isn’t quite accurate: they have more like a phalanx of trumpets that make Joshua’s Jericho horn section look like a fife and drum corps.

Here’s the WikiLeaks announcement as released from their website today.  Enjoy!

WikiLeaks GI Files Presidential Campaign Release
Wednesday 10th October, 17:00 BST

Today, Wednesday 10th October, WikiLeaks begins releasing over 200,000 Global Intelligence Files (GI Files) relating to the U.S. presidential elections. Each week day we will release thousands of emails referring to Obama, Biden, Romney and the Republican and Democratic parties. Today we will publish over 13,734 emails referring to republican(s), Romney, RNC and/or GOP, ranging from 3rd January 2011 to 19th December 2011.

The GI Files total over five million emails from the U.S. private intelligence firm Stratfor. Stratfor is a secretive multi-national private intelligence firm, providing services to large corporations, and government agencies. Despite providing the U.S. government with “global intelligence” services there is no public oversight of Stratfor. The emails highlight Stratfor staff’s revolving door with government offices; Stratfor’s Vice-President for Intelligence, Fred Burton, was formerly a special agent with the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service and was their Deputy Chief of the counterterrorism division. Although Stratfor boasts U.S. governmental sources and reports to have a lot of influence on western decision makers, their emails reveal poor working and security methods and show strong political bias within the organization.

This close connection to the U.S. government means that these GI Files releases will shed insight into key U.S. federal election players. The only legitimate government is one that is elected by an informed population. Through this release WikiLeaks aims to inform the U.S. electorate in an unbiased way through the release of source documents from one of the most oddly influential companies in the U.S. today. We call upon all people around the world to search the emails and publicise their findings using the hashtag #wlfindGI.

Whoever you elect into power, keep them accountable by supporting WikiLeaks – vote with your wallet, vote WikiLeaks.
