As reported by The Intercept, the Trump administration is considering proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer in an effort to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would go around the U.S.’s official SWAMP-INFESTED intelligence agencies…
A former senior U.S. intel official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals said:
Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him. It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books. The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.
Reportedly, the proposals would see an army of spies with no official cover in numerous countries that are “denied areas” for current American intelligence personnel – like North Korea and Iran. Included in the proposals are the consideration of creating a new global rendition unit with the goal of capturing terrorist suspects around the world. A propaganda campaign in the Middle East and Europe to combat Islamic extremism was considered in the proposals as well.
According to two former senior intelligence officials, the plan has been embraced by Pompeo and he has lobbied the White House to approve the contract.
The spy network would circumvent and leave out of the equation the United State’s Swamp-filled three-letter agencies that work every step of the way against President Trump. The FBI and CIA – being so large and expansive – became easily politicized under Obama with the appointment of ardently anti-Trump judges and directors to the agencies.
While the truth behind the proposals are unknown, it doesn’t seem outside the realm of possibility that President Trump would create a covert private spy network to better work and accomplish his goals – without the outside interference of anyone in the agencies determined on bringing him down.
