Anarchist Black Cross, 325 & Others Mentioned in Recently Leaked Stratfor Emails

Solidarity -- Free Jeremy HammondDue to the 10 year sentence handed down to anarchist hacker Jeremy Hammond in NYC yesterday Wikileaks decided to release the remaining Stratfor emails they had been sitting on for some time. Stratfor is a company that posed outwardly as a global intelligence information publisher but were in fact providing confidential intelligence services to many fucked up corporations, government and law enforcement agencies.

There are MANY emails – millions of them, but already we have found some emails of interest to the global anarchist movement, they are as follows…

Mention of Denver Anarchist Black Cross and also mention of ‘Black Cross activists’ being suspects in Texas State Govt mansion fire:

FBI informant Brandon Darby was in contact with Stratfor:

Emails of 14 US police officers revealed (including some undercover officers):

Stratfor monitoring of Occupy Austin planning:

Stratfor monitoring of and attempt to establish owner of website… obviously not very astute students of revolutionary history otherwise they would know who Tommy Weissbecker was, hahaha!:

These are some of the more interesting emails we have found so far – and please remember there are millions of emails to go through. You can search the emails yourself, try being creative with search terms, you might be surprised at some of the important information you can find!

“Collateral Murder”: U.S. Apache helicopters killing journalists and other civilians in Baghdad

Excerpt from Wikileaks “Collateral Murder” video

On April 5, 2010 Wikileaks released this leaked video footage from a U.S. Apache attack helicopter. The video shows Reuters journalist Namir Noor-Eldeen, driver Saeed Chmagh, and about a large group of other people walking and standing around together, in a public square in Eastern Baghdad in 2007 … and then the helicopters blows them all to pieces with 30mm cannons, because they thought their cameras were weapons.

After the helicopter murders this group, a minivan arrives on the scene and some people attempt to transport some of the wounded to a hospital. These rescuers are then also fired upon, along with the young children they had in the vehicle.

The official U.S. military statement on this incident initially listed all adults as insurgents and claimed they did not know how the deaths occurred. They refused to release the video to Reuters, for an investigation of the murders. But unfortunately for the military, Private Bradley Manning released the video to the folks at Wikileaks, who decrypted it and shared it under the name “Collateral Murder”.

One of my favorite leaked HBGary emails ….

“Ok I don’t mind insinuating and talking about the difficulty in government in doing this work. But I want to outwardly convey us as a security company, not an intelligence company that works for law enforcement. The guys that know cam read between the lines. If I outwardly exude intelligence them I could scare some folks off.”

— Aaron Barr, CEO of HBGary Federal in a private email leaked by Anonymous
