Booz Allen Hamilton
Booz Allen Hamilton is a major U.S. intelligence and military contractor., with offices in Virginia and Baku. Investigation into the firm began after the discovery that HBGary Federal CEO Aaron Barr had corresponded with one of the firm's vice presidents, William Wansley, regarding his research into both Wikileaks and Anonymous, and had afterwards been invited to meet with the executive about an unspecified "project."
Discussions with HBGary
On January 26th, 2011 Aaron Barr spoke to William Wansley by phone, after which Wansley wrote him the following e-mail:
Aaron, Nice talking to you today and I look forward to meeting you. We will plan a meeting this Friday at 10:30 at Booz Allen, 8283 Greensboro Drive, McLean, to discuss how you may be able to support our project. Thanks, Bill
A few days after the meeting, on January 31st, Barr sends the following e-mail to Wansley and several other Booz Allen employees - as well as John Woods, the partner of Hunton & Williams law firm who is named in the bar complaint that was eventually issued in response to the firm's involvement in the Team Themis affair.
just a status. I started to look more carefully for wikileaks ties within anonymous...there are many. BTW, anonymous is looking for its next effort to get involved in and is looking to resurrect operation payback in support of wikileaks.
Later in the day, Woods responds to Barr privately:
Aaron - Please stand down. We should have a meeting.
Aaron doesn't reply to Woods via e-mail, and it's unknown what prompted Woods' request for Barr to "stand down."
On February 5th, Barr again wrote to Woods, Wansley, and other Booz employees to bring attention to the just-published Financial Times article reporting on his alleged success in identifying Anonymous' participants and "leadership:"
John, See link below. I have made significant progress on the group and have 80-90% of their leadership mapped out. Meeting with Govies next week. I have tight few weeks and have told the folks supporting our other effort that I will not be able to give them much support until my presentation is over on Feb. 14th. Sorry for the timing. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/87dc140e-3099-11e0-9de3-00144feabdc0.html#axzz1D3oZIcTk Aaron
As Barr's e-mail was compromised by Anonymous the following day, there is no record available of any reply, nor any additional information about the nature of the "project" Barr was called in to discuss. Nonetheless, the nature of the exchange - including Aaron's presumption that Wansley would recognize the term "Operation Payback" - would seem to indicate that Anonymous and Wikileaks were both somehow related to Booz Allen's efforts in addition to those of HBGary Federal.
