U.S. Still Using Illegal Private Spy Ring in Afghanistan and Pakistan

U.S. Still Using Illegal Private Spy Ring in Afghanistan and Pakistan --One company employs a CIA operative made famous for his role in the Iran-Contra scandal 15 May 2010 Top military officials have continued to rely on a secret network of private spies who operate deep inside Afghanistan and Pakistan, according to American officials and businessmen, despite concerns among some in the military about the legality of the operation. The American military is largely prohibited from operating inside Pakistan. And under Pentagon rules, the army is not allowed to hire contractors for spying. The web of private businesses working under the Lockheed Martin contract include Strategic Influence Alternatives, American International Security Corporation and International Media Ventures, a communications company based in St. Petersburg, Fla., with Czech ownership. One of the companies employs a network of Americans, Afghans and Pakistanis run by Duane Clarridge, a C.I.A. veteran who became famous for his role in the Iran-Contra scandal. [Well, it makes sense for US mercenaries to hire Iran-Contra operatives, since the same dirt-bags are still engaged in supplying terrorists (Blackwater) with arms and running the Afghan opium routes. --LRP]
