Wikileaks regains relevance with Stratfor doc-drop

Source: The Register
Author: Richard Chirgwin
Date: 2012.02.27

Wikileaks has announced a massive document dump of e-mails obtained from Stratfor, which it says demonstrates widespread corruption and even insider trading.

As with its last major document release – the “diplomatic cables” – the organization is working with major press organisations to drip-feed the documents to the public. The five million e-mails to be provided by Wikileaks cover, it claims, everything from informants and payoffs to “payment laundering” techniques.

Wikileaks says the emails also demonstrate the US government’s campaign against it, claiming that the Stratfor documents include “more than 4,000 emails mentioning Wikileaks or Julian Assange”.

If the cables are correct, Stratfor’s informants are paid either through pre-paid credit cards or via Swiss bank accounts. Wikileaks also accuses Stratfor of planning to use its intelligence-gathering to underpin a fund to be known as StratCap.

According to the email excerpted by Wikileaks, StratCap is the brainchild of Shea Morenz (managing director of Goldman Sachs in 2009, when the plan was laid out) and Stratfor CEO George Friedman. The aim of the fund was “to use [Stratfor’s] intelligence and analysis to trade in a range of geopolitical instruments” (such as, for example, government bonds).

Globally, Wikileaks says it’s working with more than 25 media partners at first publication, with more to be announced. Media partners announced so far include Al Akhbar (Lebanon), Al Masry Al Youm (Egypt), Bivol (Bulgaria), CIPER (Chile), Dawn Media (Pakistan), L-Espresso and La Republica (Italy), La Jornada (Mexico), La Nacion (Costa Rica), Malaysia Today (Malaysia), McClatchy and Rolling Stone (US), Nawaat (Tunisia), NRD/ARD (Germany), Owni (France), Pagina 12 (Argentina), Plaza Publica (Guatemala), Publico.es (Spain), Russia Reporter, Ta Nea (Greece), Taraf (Turkey), The Hundu (India), The Yes Man (Bhopal activists) and the New Zealand Herald (New Zealand).

The irony especially for any of us that grew up in the cold war era, is epic

Assange show premiere: Time to watch 'The World Tomorrow' http://assange.rt.com/

You've been waiting and we've been teasing. Julian Assange. The World Tomorrow. Arguably the most anticipated news show of 2012 premieres next week on RT.

­Dateline  – Tuesday, April 17. Timeline – 15:30 Moscow time, 11:30 GMT, 07:30 am in New York and 21:30 in Sydney. The world will be watching "The World Tomorrow".

In the spirit of WikiLeaks we'll be publishing exclusive trailers, sneakpeaks, previews and behind-the-scenes content to bring you Assange's show in-full on "The World Tomorrow" official video-page.

The announcement that RT would host Assange's show created a global media stir, with many questioning the RT/Assange link-up. In a pre-show interview (details TBA) Assange explained his rationale.

"A lot of the things that we have been trying to report have not been carried accurately in the mainstream press. There are many, many fine exceptions but when we look at international networks there’s really only two that are worth speaking about, and that’s RT and Al Jazeera."

RT Editor-in-Chief Margarita Simonyan sees no coincidence in the connection. "RT is rallying a global audience of open minded people who question what they see in mainstream media and we are proud to premiere Julian Assange's new project. We provided Julian a platform to reach the world and gave him total editorial freedom. He is absolutely the right person to bring alternative opinions to our viewers around the globe."

The 10-episode series features Assange in conversation with "iconoclasts, visionaries and power insiders". But what brought Assange, under house arrest for 492 days without charge, to the RT screen?

"First of all, being under house arrest for so long, it’s nice to have an occasional visitor and to learn more about the world. And given that the conversations we were having are quite interesting, why not film them and show other people what was going on."

Incredibly, his detention became an ace card in his TV journalism debut as the show "revealed sides of very interesting and important people that are not normally [sic] because they are not dealing with a standard interviewer, they are dealing with someone who is under house arrest, who has gone through political problems that they can sympathize with."

The first-episode, with a notorious guest who's identity is still under wraps, will coincide with the 500th day of financial blockade on Wikileaks. The countdown for "The World Tomorrow" begins today.
