Strategic Forecasting, Inc., more commonly known as Stratfor, is a global intelligence company founded in 1996 in Austin, Texas by George Friedman who is the founder, chief intelligence officer, and CEO of the company. Fred Burton is Stratfor’s Vice President of Intelligence.
Who is George Friedman?
George Friedman (born 1949 in Budapest, Hungary) is an American political scientist and author. He is the founder, chief intelligence officer, financial overseer, and CEO of the private intelligence corporation Stratfor. He has authored several books, including The Next 100 Years, The Next Decade, America’s Secret War, The Intelligence Edge, The Coming War With Japan and The Future of War.
Friedman’s childhood was shaped directly by international conflict. He was born in Hungary to Holocaust survivors. His family fled Hungary when he was a child to escape the Communist regime, settling first in a camp for displaced persons in Austria and then immigrating to the United States, where he attended public schools in New York City, and was an early designer of computerized war games. Friedman describes his family’s story as “a very classic story of refugees making a new life in America.” He received a B.A. at the City College of New York, where he majored in political science, and a Ph.D. in government at Cornell University.
Prior to joining the private sector, Friedman spent almost twenty years in academia, teaching political science at Dickinson College. During this time, he also regularly briefed senior commanders in the armed services as well as the Office of Net Assessments, SHAPE Technical Center, the U.S. Army War College, National Defense University and the RAND Corporation, on security and national defense matters.
Who is Fred Burton?
Fred Burton is Stratfor’s vice president for intelligence, and is considered “one of the world’s foremost experts on security, terrorists and terrorist organizations.” Burton was a special agent with the U.S. Diplomatic Security Service.
Burton was also appointed by Washington to assist in the investigation of the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin. He is the former deputy chief of the counterterrorism division of the U.S. State Department’s Diplomatic Security Service. Mr. Burton also investigated the killing of Rabbi Meir Kahane; the al Qaeda New York City bombing plots before the September 11 attacks; and the Libyan-backed terrorist attacks against diplomats in Sana’a and Khartoum. He was involved in the arrest of Ramzi Yousef, the mastermind of the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
Burton is the author of a memoir, Ghost: Confessions of a Counterterrorism Agent, published by Random House in 2008, and Chasing Shadows: A Special Agent’s Lifelong Hunt to Bring a Cold War Assassin to Justice, published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2011. Burton was appointed to the Texas Border Security Council on September 11, 2007 by Governor Rick Perry.
In August 2009 he was hired as the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Assistant Director for Intelligence and Counter-Terrorism but left after 2 months to pursue his writing and speaking career.
Enough about the company and it’s top employees. Don’t you also find it weird that Stratfor is located in Austin, Texas where Infowars is also located? Now here is some more info that explains the connection between stratfor and infowars..

Maroney has intercepted and responded to “Tila Tequila” emails. Why? I’m sure they’re super busy at infowars and barley have time to read emails right? Here at USAHitman we have a hard time updating the site and responding to messages. And in this document below she clearly describes her direct involvement with covert Cyber Warfare:

Alternative media king hires CIA–Stratfor agent as publishing editor in chief
Molly Maroney is the Editor in Chief and Graphic Designer for InfoWars.com. This is the same website run by Alex Jones; who also runs PrisonPlanet.com, PrisonPlanet.tv and PlanetInfoWars.com (a social networking site).
Maroney was hired by Jones in July of this year to run the new endeavor of the Free Speech, LLC outfit known as the InfoWars magazine. Prior to this employment, while living in Austin, Texas, Maroney was a freelance graphic designer. However, this is the boring part of Maroney’s employment career.
In 2008, for less than a year, Maroney worked for the privately held marketing and advertising firm known as Grant Harrison Advertising. This company “is a full service marketing company specializing in graphic design, internet marketing, and search engine optimization services (SEO), branding, and social media exposure.”Maroney’s resume is very telling about her connections to Stratfor, the CIA and her role at InfoWars.com.
They have branches throughout Texas, including in Houston, Austin and Dallas.
For seven months in 2010, Maroney was employed by Parker Media, LLC which is a media production corporation. Also employed at Parker Media is Richard Parker, founder of the firm. Parker, the founder, “is both an award-winning journalist and a seasoned publishing executive; he is the former associate editor of The New Republic. Today, Parker Media’s clients include some of the biggest names in news and publishing, such as CQ-Roll Call, an Economist Group company, News Corp., CanWest Global Communications, as well as start-ups and their investors.”
Interestingly, Richard Parker’s name came up when WikiLeaks released documentation known as “The Global Intelligence Files” wherein “over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered ‘global intelligence’ company Stratfor ” was made public. These emails outlined how Stratfor, an intelligence publishing front for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), provided comprehensive intelligence for such corporations and US government agencies as:
• Bhopal’s Dow Chemical Co.
• Lockheed Martin
• Northrop Grumman
• Department of Homeland Security
• US Marine Corp
• US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
Startfor was involved in “selling” intelligence from informers, pay-off informants, money laundering schemes and psychological methods facilitated sourced and often raw intelligence.
The founder of Stratfor, Dr. George Friedman, has admitted that he is a Zionist.
Richard Parker himself worked for Strator an executive editor between August 1999 and August 2002.
Maroney authored a white paper with Parker entitled, “China, Cyber Espionage and US National Security” that entails how the US government can minimize “widespread business loss and government data” against the Chinese with regard to cyber espionage and cyber – attacks. This document is meant to be a “political, military and strategic” report. It is based on “intelligence gathering” with particular focus on the “proficiency in network warfare” and the modernization of potential digital wars. Maroney affirms that the US must become a leader in cybersecurity to protect national digital security against foreign nations.
From her dealings with Parker Media, Maroney became an “intern” for Stratfor. She was at the CIA – front intelligence collecting corporation for 11 months; between October 2009 and August 2010. In fact, Maroney’s employment at Parker Media and Stratfor intersected as she was working for Parker Media during the same time she was involved with Stratfor.
Info From Other Internet Users:
In the video below, MsSherrieLea explains how Molly Maroney intercepted and responded to an email sent to InfoWars pleading with Alex to have Tila Tequila on his show. MsSherrieLea indicated in her YouTube report that it seems odd that “Molly Maroney, Editor in Chief” (email address: email@example.com) would be responding to her email. Upon further investigation, MsSherrieLea discovered that Ms. Molly Maroney previously worked for Stratfor, which she innocently refers to as a “zionist israelian firm” Here’s where the story gets very, very interesting:
An extremely reliable, confidential government informant connected to the Central Intelligence Agency has verified with Pete Santilli that Stratfor is much more than a “Commercial Intelligence” agency operating in the private sector. It has been confirmed that Stratfor allows the CIA to conduct surveillance operations within the United States under cover of a private U.S. Corporation –Stratfor — which is contracted to “sell” intelligence data to government agencies including branches of the military, DOD contractors such as Trapwire, etc.
Essentially, our entire corporate & government chain of command receives “privately acquired” intelligence data from C.I.A. front Statfor, whose profits total in the 10′s of millions (per confidential internal emails released by ANONYMOUS).
For many months, Pete Santilli has received tips from reliable, high level informants who have indicated that they suspect InfoWars.com may somehow be connected to Austin, Texas based Stratfor Global Intelligence. Informants have also revealed that Alex Jones requires anyone who visits his new production facility which contains his primary computer servers must sign a “Non Disclosure Agreement”, prohibiting them from disclosing the exact geographical location of his high security facility. There is high speculation expressed by insiders that InfoWars servers are within close proximity to Stratfor, and informants have told us they believe Infowars.com may actually be selling user data directly to Stratfor.
I was just banned for pointing out that Molly Maroney Infowars magazine editor and chief was a intern at stratfor, a Israeli data mining front:
