An example of the kinds of sentiments and “strategic thoughts” expessed in the emails of the “strategic thinkers” of StratFor

Introduction to the Stratfor Memos
by Jim Craven/Omahkohkiaaiipooyii

In these memos, just as in the documents of the Pentagon Papers, are a whole lot of smoking guns. As in the case of the Pentagon Papers, no real secrets in terms of sources and methods, or doctrines or intentions or capabilities not known to any potential adversaries are revealed. So much of the trade-craft of the intelligence agencies has not really changed for hundreds of years only the hardware and software.

But what is dangerous for the powers-that-be in these documents, materials, emails and the like is the clear evidence of just how shallow, bigoted, grandiose, two-faced, mean, selfish, fascistic, narcissistic, megalomaniacal and even psychopathic some of these individuals with high-level clearances and all sorts of titles are.

And like the Pentagon Papers, they reveal that they do not even believe a lot of their own public triumphalist, bullshit internally. In the Pentagon Papers for example, there were documents showing that as early as 1964, Johnson was saying they could not exit and create a demonstration effect (the real domino principle) for other insurgencies that the U.S. Imperium could be defeated, yet could not possibly “win” in Vietnam no matter anyone’s slippery definition of “victory”.

Just look at what they say about Petraeus, the CIA, CIA capabilities and the like. Speculation on the termination of the former Director of Analysis in CIA? And some of these individuals hold or held high-level security clearances. Is is not interesting that we ask all immigrants if they have ever been members of any communist party or organization yet never asked if they have ever been members of any fascist organization or have such proclivities.

And here you have these “strategic minds” (clearly mostly legends in their own minds from their own self-praise of themselves) giving “strategic advice” at “strategic levels” and presenting like their name “strategic forecasts” on “strategic issues” and they are still spreading the slander and libel that Obama was not born on U.S. soil.

You will see here why the WIKILEAKS and other such revelations are really so dangerous to the powers-that-be. They show that behind the masks, posturing, strutting, and other poseur machinations, these folks are nothing; what my mother used to call “White Trash in ties” white trash not because of the color of their skin but white trash because of their obvious smug and entitled pride in their whiteness they had nothing to do with but tout as if it were some kind of accomplishment. This mentality is very evident in some of these emails.

Among the traitors who did the most damage to the U.S., Aldrich Ames of the CIA and Robert Hanssen of the FBI, both high-up in Counter-intelligence, both ultra anti-communist, both ultra-conservatives, both big on America uber Alles, both sanctimonious, both from ultra-conservative and anti-Communist fathers (Ames father 30 year CIA and Hanssen’s father Chicago PD Red Squad) and both held highest level security clearances and were thought to be incapable of treason and betrayal of trust.

They would have both fit right in at Stratfor. And look at what they are themselves leaking out about Petraeus, a possible mistress, how she is viewed by the Yemenis, his drinking habits and how he may talk too much, possible classified information revealed to this potential mistress not his wife accompanying him etc…

And was all this known prior to Petraeus recommended for CIA and being vetted for CIA? I wonder if any of them reported Petraeus at the time and who that woman,not his wife, was and in what capacity was she with him.

I find that american officials outside intelligence or on the margins are the most convinced of this.

On the money angle, it’s a perfect example of how opportunistic the tribes and players are in Yemen. Great stuff.

PUBLICATION: background/analysis
SOURCE DESCRIPTION: Yemeni diplomat based in DC
This was a bit of a hectic, late night mtg so I didn’t get a focused discussion. King Fahd’s youngest son, Prince AbdelAziz was in town and challenged everyone to a champagne bottle drinking contest. He’s a total goof-off. I have a more serious mtg scheduled with the Yemeni diplomat for next wk.

Source just came back from Yemen last week. Seems like they are making decent progress against AQAP and the Houthis. You know that song, moneymoneymoneymoney moonaaaay, monaaaay? well, that’s yemen right now.

The Saudis are pouring cash in to buy off militants, defectors, etc. through the tribes and it’s working. Source claims that AQAP is heavily infiltrated because of this. And their concerns over OpSec show. It’s just become a huge money-making business now. That’s why the Houthis want to negotiate directly with Saudi, and not through Sanaa and why Sanaa wants to be the mediator. They know whoever deals with the Saudis, gets money as part of the deal. Everybody wants a cut.

An example on the money angle — this one commander tells the Saudis give me 40,000 riyals, I’ll make the Houthis come down from XXXX (i’m forgetting the name of this hilltop right now). The commander takes the money, hands out 10,000 Riyals, keeps the rest for himself and they all come down. Because of deals like this Abdel Malik al Houthi doesn’t have control over the entire Houthi insurgency., just sub-factions here and there.

Yes, the Houthis were able to seriously raise their profile and embarrass Sanaa and Riyadh, but they’re pretty beaten down right now. The towns are all bulldozed. THey have nowhere to go. Just hiding out on hilltops right now.

The delay in the release of Echo is because the Yemenis got the intel to bomb their ‘computer’ labs in Arhab.

The Saudis and Americans aren’t giving any attention to the rehab proposals. Yemen has been asking them for support, but they’re not interested in that initiative right now. Nothing’s being done on it. What the Yemenis really want are more helos, which the US isn’t giving them. US says they already have enough transport and firepower, but is also blocking the Yemenis from striking any deals with the Russians, Chinese, etc to get them.

The Yemeni CT units are slowly (well, trying) to come up to speed. There’s a body that was created about a year ago, called the OSSF – office of strategic security forces or something like that. It’s 100,000 strong, trained by Jordanian and US intel, NSA. There’s a change in attitude by Sanaa on the CT front. Whereas before, the US would provide the coordinates on a target and the Yemenis would stall and stall, now they’re ready to take them out.

Whenever the source met with Saleh, Saleh was completely obsessed with the Houthi rebellion. THat’s at the top of the list of his priorities. he wants to end this for good.


Petraeus has become BFF with the Yemeni ambassador here. Dinners every other week at the amb’s house. Last time he came with this woman, not his wife. The Yemenis think she was his mistress, but i seriously doubt that he’d be that stupid considering how high profile he is. You can see Petraeus taking a much deeper interest in Yemen these days though.

Petraeus (after he drinks a few) says privately there is an Iranian link in Yemen, but it is not yet critical.

Didn’t get much of a chance to go into any depth on the southerners and al Fadhli, but i will next wk.

Update on those leaks from a couple weeks ago on CIA recommendations to the administration to carry out drone strikes in Yemen… The administration has tasked out all the main agencies to give their recommendations on US counterterrorism policy toward Yemen, with a policy decision due by the end of the year.

There’s a huge turf war between CIA and JSOC over this, which is why all these leaks are coming out. First the CIA leaked their rec for drone strikes. Then CENTCOM leaked their rec for $1.2 billion assistance funding for Yemeni special forces (this was all Petraeus, who has a very good relationship with the Yemenis and goes to the Yemeni ambo’s house pretty regularly for dinner.The Yemenis are nervous about Mattis taking over Centcom. THey could deal well with Petraeus, whom they consider a ‘diplomat.’ Don’t know yet how to read Mattis.

There’s been a ton of media spin and leaks later about Anwar al Awlaki being the next bin Laden. OBL is becoming old news now. CIA and JSOC want
a new target to claim success, so there’s a concerted campaign going on
right now to play up al Awlaki as the #1 terrorist. Al Awlaki is much
easier to target anyway and they have leads on him, so every agency wants
to be the one to say they got him.

Subject: CIA head of analysis fired

Jamie Miscik, Deputy Director of Intelligence at the CIA was fired today. As DDI, she ran the analytic shop. According to media reports, she was fired for squandering resources on day to day reports while ignoring the broad trends. In other words, she was fired for looking at the trees and being unable to see the forest. She was also accused of spending too much time updating policy makers and too little time trying to grasp the broad trends–giving customers what they wanted instead of what they needed. In the end, it was her customers that turned on her.

My charge against her was and remains that she took no pride in her craft and turned intelligence into PR and shoddy process. She and her gang are now history.

This gives Stratfor an enormous, historic opportunity. The CIA model of analysis has been invalidated. The ponderous, process driven machine that could only manage the small things now needs to be replaced by a robust, visionary, courageous analytic system. Stratfor has the opportunity to show the way. In fact, we are showing the way. Everyone in Langley knows that we do things they have never been able to do with a small fraction of their resources. They have always asked how we did it. We can now show them and maybe they can learn.

Our annual and decade forecast will, I guarantee you, be read by everyone at the CIA. They are looking for new models and they are looking at us. Every ounce of excellence that Stratfor owns will go into those two pieces. This will not only be good business, it will serve our country. They will be a road map to the craft of intelligence.

Allan Dulles said that intelligence was a craft. It is not a mass production line. The architects of misbegotten process in intelligence have failed and are out. It is our chance to step to the plate. It’s a rare moment and I want everyone in intelligence to take a break from working to think, dream and imagine. This is our chance to do it right.

It is Stratfor’s chance to make intelligence history and build a major business at the same time. It is a moment I have been waiting for–and knew was coming–since 1996, when George Tenet was appointed DCI and Stratfor was founded. I, for one, am going to show them how it’s done. I invite each of you to join me. This, ladies and gentlemen, is it.

This skinny, hard scrabble, 70-year-old Texas sheriff, dipping Copenhagen, wearing two Colt .45 Commanders (“am too damn old to reload”) asked me to help him define probable cause for traffic stops in a post 9-11 world.

He went on to say that his current policy was, “Anybody who doesn’t belong, dot com land speculators, foreigners, Middle-Easterners, cars with tags north of Virginia, and long hairs.”

I nodded and told him that was a pretty good list, but he may want to think about adding anybody who drives a Volvo, beacuse they could be liberal Dems in his county stirring up dissent.

The old boy said, “Damn good idea” as he scribbled it down in his ticket book.

For this obedience is the law of our being. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
