With the theft and release of 5 million emails via Anonymous/Wikileaks, we’re learning some things:
According to one of the e-mails, the firm was shown the information papers collected from bin Laden’s Abbotabad compound after the US special forces attack last May that resulted in his death.
The e-mail, from a Stratfor analyst, suggested that up to 12 officials in Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency knew of the al-Qaeda leader’s safe house.
I think we all assumed that already, but this is more clarification that the ISI is working against us even as we’re sending Pakistan money.
About the Wikileaks thing. The revelation from this email dump is that Stratfor is a “private CIA” not a journalistic endeavor. I’d say something like that is true of Wikileaks. Does anyone believe there was no coordination between Anonymous and Wikileaks to get these emails? I don’t think he just sits around waiting for this stuff to drop in his lap.
