CIA makes up half of some US embassies
CIA runs independent air forces and armies
By Wane Madsen
The Central Intelligence Agency makes up fifty percent of U.S. embassy staff in certain countries, according to a former senior State Department official who has recently been in Afghanistan. In fact, the U.S. embassies in Kabul, Afghanistan and Baghdad, Iraq have the highest complement of CIA official cover and non-official cover agents of any U.S. embassy.
Along with the massive CIA presence among the U.S. diplomatic corps is the presence of independent air forces and armies that are operated in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other countries by the CIA. The operations are run out of U.S. embassies in the countries.
The issue of the CIA's large presence under diplomatic cover in foreign nations has recently taken on new significance with the arrest in Pakistan of Raymond Davis, an American "diplomat" charged by the Punjab provincial government with the shooting to death of two Pakistani men in the city of Lahore. Punjab authorities are also seeking the arrest of the driver and passengers of a U.S. consulate car that struck and killed a motorcyclist in Lahore just moments after Davis shot the two Pakistani men. There are reports that the CIA has successfully spirited out of Pakistan the car's driver and three passengers. The car was reportedly traveling with Davis's vehicle.
The Obama administration is playing hardball with Pakistan, which is refusing to recognize the diplomatic immunity claimed for Davis since he is a contractor for Hyperion Protective Consultants, LLC.
WMR has learned that Hyperion is part of the CIA's worldwide private army of paramilitary forces. There are reports that Davis knows enough about CIA operations in Pakistan and Afghanistan that Obama's national security adviser Thomas Donilon has threatened to expel Pakistan's ambassador to the United States if Davis is not freed. The Obama administration is concerned that Davis will spill the beans on the CIA's support for "militants" engaged in false flag terrorist attacks in Pakistan. There are reports that Davis had been in "professional contact" with Lashkar-e-Jhangvi guerrillas in South Waziristan before he was arrested for the murder of the two Pakistanis in Lahore.
The hardball being played by Obama toward Pakistan and his continued protection for the CIA-backed Hosni Mubarak-Omar Suleiman ("Sheik Al-Torture") regime in Egypt is additional proof that Obama is a product of years of loyal CIA employment, as well as grooming for higher office.
The CIA's global team of "State Department" agents, acting under virtual diplomatic immunity, is present in every U.S. mission and embassy abroad from the US mission to the Holy See to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, just a few miles from San Diego. Other embassies and missions where between one-third and one-half the diplomatic complements are made up of CIA agents are Sanaa, Yemen; Islamabad, Pakistan; Damascus, Syria; Amman, Jordan; Cairo, Egypt; Tripoli, Libya; Khartoum, Sudan; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
