The 3 boxes of freedom; the soap box, the ballot box and the ammo box
WASHINGTON – The CIA hired private contractors from Blackwater USA in 2004 as part of a secret program to kill top-level members of al-Qaida, but a spokesman says it never resulted in the capture or killing of any terrorist suspects.
Former Rep. Porter Goss was CIA director at the time, and the contract ended during his time in office, according to a former senior intelligence official and another person familiar with the program. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the program remains classified.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., who is chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said Thursday the CIA broke the law by failing to notify Congress about the program earlier, her strongest statement yet condemning the agency's actions.
The CIA began the hit squad program shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001,terrorist attacks, but it never became fully operational.
What you don't need to do is tell Congress.
Congress "leaks" it to the New York Times, than the Times puts it on the front page.
If the Times was doing this during WW II we would be speaking Greman today.
