From Steve Horn:
Below is part two of an investigative series I’m working on that explains how information warfare vs. activists works, using the example of Stratfor (Strategic Forecasting, Inc.), formerly known as Mongoven, Biscoe & Duchin/Pagan International. The 4-step formula Stratfor utilizes is fascinating and actually a brilliant sociological framework and has stood the test of time, as seen via the Wikileaks “Global Intelligence Files.”

How To Wage War vs. Grassroots Activists: Stratfor’s Strategies
By Steve Horn | July 29, 2013
The home page of the Stratfor website is seen on a computer monitor in London Wendesday Jan 11, 2012. Security analysis firm Stratfor has relaunched its website after hackers brought down its servers and stole thousands of credit card numbers and other personal information belonging to its clients. Stratfor acknowledged Wednesday that the company had not encrypted customer information a major embarrassment for a security company.
‘Radicals, Idealists, Realists, Opportunists’
While its client work was noteworthy, the formula Duchin created to divide and conquer activist movements — a regurgitation of what he learned while working under the mentorship of Rafael Pagan — has stood the test of time. It is still employed to this day by Stratfor.
