Today's NY Times Leaked Classified Info– Blackwater Helped CIA
The leak streak continues…
(Are We Lumberjacks)
The New York Times continued to leak politically motivated classified security information this week. The latest leak claims the dreaded Blackwater USA assisted the CIA in a top secret training program back in 2004.
This leak was no doubt aimed at discrediting the CIA. In May Speaker Pelosi called the CIA liars without any proof after she was caught lying herself about waterboarding.
The New York Times reported:
The Central Intelligence Agency in 2004 hired outside contractors from the private security contractor Blackwater USA as part of a secret program to locate and assassinate top operatives of Al Qaeda, according to current and former government officials.
Executives from Blackwater, which has generated controversy because of its aggressive tactics in Iraq, helped the spy agency with planning, training and surveillance. The C.I.A. spent several million dollars on the program, which did not successfully capture or kill any terrorist suspects.
The fact that the C.I.A. used an outside company for the program was a major reason that Leon E. Panetta, the C.I.A.’s director, became alarmed and called an emergency meeting in June to tell Congress that the agency had withheld details of the program for seven years, the officials said.
It is unclear whether the C.I.A. had planned to use the contractors to actually capture or kill Qaeda operatives, or just to help with training and surveillance in the program. American spy agencies have in recent years outsourced some highly controversial work, including the interrogation of prisoners. But government officials said that bringing outsiders into a program with lethal authority raised deep concerns about accountability in covert operations.
So, I guess we’re supposed to be outraged that Blackwater trained the CIA now.
Is that it?
