ZOG, Inc., the Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight

CIA bumbling in Arabia and Central Asia.

So if there’s a Civil War Two, this is what we’re up against. They may have drones, but they are big time screw ups in intelligence and counter-intelligence. So they can be infiltrated, disrupted, killed, and embarassed by a nimble, flexible, decentralized band of guerillas.

Take Dane Paresi and Jeremy Wise. In 2009, not long after Paresi left the Army Special Forces and Wise the Navy SEALs, they were hired by Xe Services (the former Blackwater) to work for GRS and assigned to Camp Chapman, a CIA base in Khost, Afghanistan. On December 30, 2009, Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, a Jordanian doctor who had been recruited by the CIA to infiltrate al-Qaeda, was invited to a meeting at the base after spending several months in Pakistan’s tribal borderlands. Invited as well were several senior CIA staff members from Kabul who hoped Balawi might help them target Ayman al-Zawahiri, then al-Qaeda’s number two man, who also hailed from Jordan.

Details of what happened are still sketchy, but the GRS men clearly failed to fulfill their security mission. Somehow Balawi, who turned out to be not a double but a triple agent, made it onto the closed base with a bomb and blew himself up, killing not just Paresi and Wise but also seven CIA staff officers, including Jennifer Matthews, the base chief.

Thirteen months later, in January 2011, another GRS contractor, Raymond Davis, decided to shoot his way out of what he considered a difficult situation in Lahore, Pakistan. The Army Special Forces veteran had also worked for Blackwater, although at the time of the shootings he was employed by Hyperion Protective Services, LLC.

Assigned to work at a CIA safe house in Lahore to support agents tracking al-Qaeda in Pakistan, Davis had apparently spent days photographing local military installations like the headquarters of the paramilitary Frontier Corps. On January 27th, his car was stopped and he claims that he was confronted by two young men, Faizan Haider and Faheem Shamshad. Davis proceeded to shoot both of them dead, and then take pictures of their bodies, before radioing back to the safe house for help. When a backup vehicle arrived, it compounded the disaster by driving at high speed the wrong way down a street and killing a passing motorcyclist.

Davis was later caught by two traffic wardens, taken to a police station, and jailed. A furor ensued, involving both countries and an indignant Pakistani media. The U.S. embassy, which initially claimed he was a consular official before the Guardian broke the news that he was a CIA contractor, finally pressured the Pakistani government into releasing him, but only after agreeing to pay out $2.34 million in compensation to the families of those he killed.

A year and a half later, two more GRS contractors made front-page news under the worst of circumstances. Former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty andTyrone Woods had been assigned to a CIA base in Benghazi, Libya, where the Agency was attempting to track a developing North African al-Qaeda movement and recover heavy weapons, including Stinger missiles, that had been looted from state arsenals in the wake of an U.S.-NATO intervention which led to the fall of the autocrat Muammar Qaddafi.

On September 11, 2012, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was staying at a nearby diplomatic compound when it came under attack. Militants entered the buildings and set them on fire. A CIA team, including Doherty, rushed to the rescue, although ultimately, unlike Hollywood’s action teams, they did not save Stevens or the day. In fact, several hours later, the militants raided the CIA base, killing both Doherty and Woods.

The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight

The disastrous denouements to these three incidents, as well as the deaths of four GRS contractors — more than a quarter of CIA casualties since the War on Terror was launched — raise a series of questions: Is this yet another example of the way the privatization of war and intelligence doesn’t work? And is the answer to bring such jobs back in-house? Or does the Hollywood-style skullduggery (gone repeatedly wrong) hint at a larger problem? Is the present intelligence system, in fact, out of control and, despite a combined budget of$52.6 billion a year, simply incapable of delivering anything like the “security” promised, leaving the various spy agencies, including the CIA, increasingly desperate to prove that they can “defeat” terrorism?

    Any mechanical thing that can me made can be broken. The CIA basically stands for Cocaine In America. I think they are dipping into the stock room way too often.

    If the spy game is like the military Obama has insisted on filling the ranks with LGBT types and incompetent racial minorities. Let him turn it all into an experiment in social engineering. That way, the end game for WNs plays out that much sooner.

    One of these things is not like the other. I’m not arguing that the contractors are competant, but lumping the Bengazi incident in makes no sense.

    The only reasons to include it are if a: there were only two incidents that fit the profile and the writer needed to shoehorn in a third to make this into a pattern or b: the writer wanted to insinuate that Bengazi was all about incompetant contractors rather than the consulate being hung out to dry.

    That having been said , its clear that human intel isn’t a USG strong suit.

    • Bengazi was likely done by Al Qaeda to help Romney. A cursory glance at Romney’s ties to Bush Sr. and Bush Sr’s ties to Al Qaeda going all the way back to BCCI puts things in focus. They don’t call it Al-CIA-duh for nothing.

      I realize that’s not a popular notion for Republicans that think Obama is somehow worse than the Bush mob. Those who don’t learn from history, etc.

      Here is a comment I found related to the video: ‘That douche in the black jacket…. trying to “take charge” of something he had no business in. That woman could have been killed… and to think the black had the audacity to pull off this knock out stunt in the middle of a crowded shopping mall in front of people not just in some ghetto alley way but in front of a whole crowd, they’re testing white people more and more to see what these brain dead idiots will put up with, he didn’t give a damn what anyone in the mall would have thought if he got a successful punch and then would have just ran off while the brain dead whites wonder what just happened as a woman lay unconscious with brain damage on the floor. It’s the neutered society where no one can take claim to their own quarrel instead you have fools like the guy in the black jacket’

    You must admit Raymond Davis and the guys in Benghazi Doherty and Woods have huge balls. If we could get these guys on our side the Hebs would be in big trouble.
