“Whoever was responsible for this attack on STRATFOR did some serious damage, both physically and to its reputation. “
And I believe whoever is responsible for this should be prosecuted.
My point simply is that the two groups likely aren’t endangering national security; rather, they are more like vandals and trespassers, and hardly deserve the world stage the media, governments and intelligence community are affording them.
I agree, and I should have put that on my response to you. I meant to stress the issue of this being a private company and not a government agency. However, STRATFOR has its fair share of former government officials who have been known to spook around the world in a former life. Hopefully at some point the people responsible for this will be found.
