Stratfor Analyzes Chevron’s Lawyers Suing A Documentary Maker

Chevron wouldn’t be suing John Berlinger, the award winning filmmaker of the documentary Crude, for over six hundred hours of footage if it didn’t show anything wrong, an email from the private intelligence firm Stratfor claims.

The email, obtained by WikiLeaks, states that Chevron should know exactly what’s in the film, and hope it will win the case. Otherwise, the filmmaker might release the material later that may be damning to Chevron. The email also states that if Chevron were to win the case, it would be a very contraversial win for the oil giant.
