The Wikileaks Global Intelligence files that were caught from the Stratfor database show rather close connections between Stratfor and Srdja Popovic according to the article Wikileaks Docs Expose Famed Serbian Activist’s Ties to ‘Shadow CIA’. Some of the issues mentioned:
- Popovic gave lectures at Stratfor
- he passed information to Stratfor about on-the-ground activist events in countries around the world - without their consent
- During the Arab Spring, when Popovic had an interview with CNN he turned to Stratfor for talking points.
- Popovic's wife worked during one year at Stratfor
- Stratfor gave him a free subscription
