You may remember STRATFOR as the “global intelligence” service recently hacked by Anonymous. The electronic interlopers scarfed STRATFOR’s customer list and all its internal emails (the most damning of which appeared on wikileaks). As part of its recovery from that $1.75m debacle STRATFOR has been upping the number of posts advising Average Joes how to deal with active shooters, workplace killers and terrorist threats. It’s pretty standard stuff: amp-up the situational awareness; run, hide, fight; and never give up. The most recent version by Scott Stewart—When Things Go Bad—includes a brief discussion of MDACC (motion, distance, angle, cover and concealment). Which reminds me: why isn’t STATFOR recommending that Americans facing the threat of violence exercise their Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms by carrying a gun? The last thing STRATFOR’s clients need is advice from a toothless sheepdog. Just sayin’ . . .
