On Monday February 27th, 2012, WikiLeaks began publishing The Global Intelligence Files, over five million e-mails from the Texas headquartered "global intelligence" company Stratfor. The e-mails date between July 2004 and late December 2011. They reveal the inner workings of a company that fronts as an intelligence publisher, but provides confidential intelligence services to large corporations, such as Bhopal's Dow Chemical Co., Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon and government agencies, including the US Department of Homeland Security, the US Marines and the US Defence Intelligence Agency. The emails show Stratfor's web of informers, pay-off structure, payment laundering techniques and psychological methods.

Files released Thursday by the Federal Bureau of Investigation on the 1996
murder of rapper Tupac Shakur state that the star had received death
threats from the Jewish Defense League, an organization that has been
characterized as terrorist group.

Shakur was shot dead in Las Vegas in September 1996, in a murder case
which remain unsolved.

"The JDL... have been extorting money from various rap music stars via
death threats," the FBI file on the case states. The report then goes on
to describe how the group would make the death threats, and then call the
rap star and offer protection for a fee.

According to the documents, Shakur was a victim of this scheme, as was
another late rapper, Eazy-E.

Although the documents refer to the JDL extortion scheme, they don't make
a direct connection between the group and the murder of Shakur.

The FBI files were released as part of the Freedom of Information and
Privacy Acts.

The JDL was founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane, who once served in the Knesset,
but whose party was later banned for its extreme right-wing beliefs, which
included transferring Arabs out of Israel. Kahane was murdered in New York
