Stratfor has condemned the release by the anti-secrecy website WikiLeaks of millions of emails from the U.S.-based global security analysis firm.

In a written statement, Stratfor denounced the release of its stolen e-mails, calling it an attempt to silence and intimidate the company.

The statement said some of the e-mails could be forged or altered, and that it would not comment on anything contained in them.

WikiLeaks said the more than 5 million e-mails, dating from 2004 to 2011, would show "how a private intelligence agency works, and how they target individuals for their corporate and government clients."

WikiLeaks said the e-mails show Stratfor's confidential ties to Dow Chemical, Lockheed Martin, and government agencies such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
