By: Tuesday February 28, 2012 9:30 am

The whistleblowing organization WikiLeaks has partnered with more than twenty-five media outlets to release millions of emails from the global private intelligence company known as Stratfor. The release of the emails, which they are calling the “Global Intelligence Files,” shows the full scope of the company’s operations— such as how they provide intelligence services to major corporations like Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Company.
