CIFA’s had a key role in the Duke Cunningham scandal and the prominent role intelligence contractors play at CIFA.
The NYT neglected to mention that CIFA is the government’s most heavily outsourced intelligence agency. Over 30 corporations provide 90% of CIFA’s staff–that’s a blue green ratio of 1:9. CIFA’s prime contractors are the usual suspects such as SAIC.
The DoD Inspector General has found inconsistencies between CIFA’s procurement practices and procurement regulations that have resulted in overpayment for office space. CIFA was involved in further “inconsistencies” between procurement law and its multimillion dollar contracts with MZM, a benefactor of former Congressman Duke Cunningham.
The center piece of CIFA’s domestic intelligence programs was the TALON database which logged unconfirmed reports of “suspicious” incidents within the US. These suspicious incidents have included various protests by peace groups, including Quakers. The Pentagon announced in August 2007 that it was shuttering the TALON program, effective the following month. Without the TALON data to sift through, it’s unclear what CIFA contractors have been doing in the interim.
One possibility is noted by the NYT is mentioned in documents obtained by the ACLU:
Newly declassified documents released on Tuesday shed more light on another activity coordinated by the Pentagonʼs counterintelligence office, issuing letters to banks and credit agencies to obtain financial records in terrorism and espionage investigations.
Despite its rather verbose mission statement, CIFA’s purpose has been nebulous since its creation by former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
Many consider CIFA to be the largest boondoggle in the Intelligence Community.
Nature Of The Case – civil suit
PREDATORY EXTORTIONS BY FBI, CIA, ATF
Civil case: 2:08-cv-01028-KJD-PAL
I was approached by various state & federal law enforcement agency’s under the badge of “Multi-Agency Task Force” which includes FBI, ATF, local vice, undercover, unknown entities, etc.. They wanted me to abet them in entrapping “State and political officials” having Sex so they could extort, control and blackmail them, not to charge them with misdemeanor prostitution. At the same time women at my service were being tricked and trafficked overseas into jails in Bangkok and Vienna, while a madam from Alabama was found hanging in a federal jail cell in nearby Brazoria County, Tx. (Tom Delay’s precinct) while the Waco Davidian’s burned. Local vice and sheriff dept. both apologized, saying they too were being coerced into this corruption that they did not agree with. Illegal wiretapping condoned in the court transcript.
I went to the FBI and after meeting the 3rd time they said they would help me only if I would help them, again, to blackmail officials. They had no interest in the corruption aspect. Some very high profile names were involved and media people.
When I refused to abet in the extortions I was thrown in jail, no bond, a ‘Life’ sentence filed on me, jury denied, my son and family were harassed in gang-like mafia style.
I did 7 1/2 yrs. in prison, illegally hidden away in State prison ‘solitary’ under endless torture to include being gassed twice, beat up, put in mud fields of ants, poisoned, etc… My son, age 17, removed from junior college and forced to dig ditches also. Paroled 2003.
1. D.C. Madam Jeane Palfrey, madam Brandi Britton
2. CIA Kyle Dusty Foggo
3. Duke Cunningham
4. Don Siegelman, former Alabama Governor
5. Elliott Spencer, former NY Governor, “Sheriff of Wall Street” (bailouts)
6. Jim Gibbons, NV Governor
8. I assume both Kennedy’s
There are many others and around the globe but most cases are not reported, my own demise is blacked out by media as well.
In 1993 Palfrey, while on federal prison for parole in California for extortion, opened her escort service in Wash.D.C. The same year I was approached.
Dusty Foggo had an office in Vienna, also in Dallas where this scheme began in Tx then came toHouston where I lived.
Foggo & Palfrey provenly Sextorted U.S. Congressional Armed Forces committeeman Rep. Duke Cunningham to manipulate and profit from the war. This is when U.S. DA Carol Lam was fired.
