From Steve Horn:

Hi All:

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.”

Please do check it out and pass it along to your networks! Cross-posts are welcome, but please URL link it back to the original on Mint Press News. .

Thanks,
Steve
