I hope this is just someone’s wet dream….
Talking about Oliver North and head guy at the Blackwater, also called Xe Service and now renamed Academi, outfit that was under investigation for actions in Iraq (By Congress, Iraqi Courts and the DOJ) is REALLY scary …..Up until this reporting the outfit was a security service….
Some of these people are saying they have ALREADY started supplying intel , out of the American government system to current CIA Director Mike Pompeo….
Trump has NEVER much use for ANYTHING not slanted to what he believes in….
Tillerson is cutting the balls out of the State Dept…..Is the CIA next?
Russian President Putin HAS to be smiling at all of this ….
Donald Trump could be the single BEST asset they have every worked to get….
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION is considering a set of proposals developed by Blackwater founder Erik Prince and a retired CIA officer — with assistance from Oliver North, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal — to provide CIA Director Mike Pompeo and the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies, according to several current and former U.S. intelligence officials and others familiar with the proposals. The sources say the plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state” enemies in the intelligence community seeking to undermine Trump’s presidency.
The creation of such a program raises the possibility that the effort would be used to create an intelligence apparatus to justify the Trump administration’s political agenda.
“Pompeo can’t trust the CIA bureaucracy, so we need to create this thing that reports just directly to him,” said a former senior U.S. intelligence official with firsthand knowledge of the proposals, in describing White House discussions. “It is a direct-action arm, totally off the books,” this person said, meaning the intelligence collected would not be shared with the rest of the CIA or the larger intelligence community. “The whole point is this is supposed to report to the president and Pompeo directly.”
Oliver North, who appears frequently on Trump’s favorite TV network, Fox News, was enlisted to help sell the effort to the administration. He was the “ideological leader” brought in to lend credibility, said the former senior intelligence official.
Some of the individuals involved with the proposals secretly met with major Trump donors asking them to help finance operations before any official contracts were signed….
The CIA and State Dept. do use contract outfits for assignments …..
But this possibility connected to Donald Trump could be a way to go ‘around’ the American intelligence community…Not work under it…
