Not verified. But this (.pdf), from the documents WikiLeaks just released, is a glossary of intelligence terms defined for Stratfor employees.
Check out what they say about the ATF:
Alcohol, Tobacco, and Fire Arms. Rednecks with a license to kill. Never, ever, ever ask for their help on anything.
Rednecks? ATFE? I’m insulted. But then, calling them idiots would insult idiots.
I note that, whoever they are, they’re similarly complementary of various other Feral Agencies, not to mention intelligence community actors and practices. Fun to read, even if it isn’t “real”.
That is a terrible slander against rednecks everywhere. If anything rednecks are quite respectful of gun rights.
The whole thing is just snarky enough to be a genuine (unofficial) internal document, produced by somebody with too much time on his hands. I used to get in trouble writing things like this. Regularly. Keeps you sane when you’re surrounded by bullshit. Also keeps you intermittently employed.
