New WikiLeaks Document Dump

Monday, February 27, 2012

This morning the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks began publishing more than 5 million emails from a Texas-based global security analysis company that has been compared to a shadow CIA. WikiLeaks has not explained how it acquired the documents, which belong to the company Stratfor but it's widely believed that WikiLeaks was given the information by the hacker group Anonymous. Hackers linked to Anonymous claim to have stolen emails from Starfor last year. Noah Shachtman is a contributing editor of Wired Magazine and a Fellow at The Brookings Institution.
