Former ICANN director Veni Markovski, who currently heads Eastern European relations at the organization, has been fingered by Wikileaks as a Stratfor source. Stratfor is the "global intelligence" outfit, once described by Barron's as "The Shadow CIA", which had its email server pwned by the hacker group Anonymous last year.
Former National Party senator and businessman Bill O'Chee has been revealed as the most prolific Australian informant of a controversial private global intelligence company that is the target of a new campaign by WikiLeaks.
A report published in the Indian daily Times of India says that approximately five million emails of the Texas-based think tank were revealed by WikiLeaks. "Whereas seemingly large numbers of Stratfor s subscribers and clients work in the US military and intelligence agencies, Stratfor gave complimentary membership to General Hamid Gul, the controversial former head of Pakistan s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), who, according to US diplomatic cables, planned an IED attack on international forces in Afghanistan in 2006," he report said.
Defense experts on Tuesday cast doubt on the credibility of a Texas-based company whose leaked e-mails allegedly contain inside information about Kremlin infighting from high-ranked sources including Prosecutor General Yury Chaika.
