Wikileaks begins publishing 5 million Stratfor e-mails

Austin - Crippled by a banking embargo by such credit providers as Visa and MasterCard, the Bank of America, and other international financial services companies of all efforts to raise donations, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange acknowledged his anti-secrecy hacking group is unable to continue what have been normal operations. In retaliation, the organization began to publish some 5 million e-mails stolen from Stratfor, an Austin strategic forecasting private intelligence agency that serves major corporations.

Recently, founder and CEO George Friedman arranged for a credit security company to monitor clients and former clients of the Stratfor service whose bank accounts Wikileaks operatives invaded in raids that netted thousands of dollars in each case before banks were alerted to the fraudulent activity.

He denied disinformation spread by Wikileaks that he has resigned as the company's CEO.
