CIA and Blackwater – is it over?

Speculation is mounting that US private security firm Blackwater could be overstepping its mandate in its assistance of the CIA operations in Iraq and Pakistan.

Last week the CIA cancelled its contract with the company for its operatives to load missiles onto drone aircraft, amid reports its security guards have been aiding with snatch-and-grab operations on suspected terrorists in Iraq.

RT contributor, Wayne Madsen: “We also have heard from former ISI officials in Pakistan that Blackwater is involved in some of the terrorist attacks and bombings in Pakistan that have been attributed to the so–called Taliban in Pakistan and Al-Qaeda in Pakistan, so are these sensitive operations in fact false flag attacks?” Read also – Blackwater in Colombia
