CIA let Blackwater employed fake journos to spy – report

The CIA allowed private security contractor Blackwater to use fake journalists to gather intelligence from the Middle East – that’s the allegation of the Wayne Madsen report.

It challenges the CIA’s claim not to use journalists as agents.

“A lot of focus right now is on Blackwater, which received a prime contract engaged in a lot of covered operations around the world, including the targeted assassinations and use of foreign mercenaries,” said investigative journalist Wayne Madsen.
