SPY TALK

CIA domestic ops go far beyond Shahzad probe

People upset about the CIA’s involvement in domestic interrogations might be surprised to learn that the spy agency’s most explosive growth in recent years has been right here in the USA -- not in the back alleys of Karachi or in the mountains of Afghanistan.

According to some insider estimates, most of the CIA’s recruitment of foreign spies now takes place in the United States. Hundreds of CIA officers working out of cover offices and companies in areas where foreign students and scientists abound -- such as Boston, Los Angeles, Silicon Valley and the like -- try to make contact with their marks and send them back home as spies.

Advocates say it’s a lot easier, and safer, than trying to recruit agents in places like China, under the scrutiny of Beijing’s secret police and counterspy service, not to mention in places like the Middle East and Pakistan.

But the strategy has its critics, too, especially former CIA operations officers who say the spy agency is playing it too safe -- and not delivering the goods to U.S. commanders who need strong intelligence in places like Afghanistan and Pakistan.


"In response to criticism that more than 90 percent of its officers live and work entirely within the United States, and that the remainder work within American embassies, the CIA periodically promises to get more officers under cover, on the street, in foreign countries," a former CIA officer who uses the pseudonym Ishmael Jones told me in April.

But it doesn’t, he maintains.

“Get the CIA's clandestine officers out of the United States and move them to assignments in foreign countries, as required by the CIA's charter,” he argued last year in The Atlantic online.

“Move more CIA officers outside the diplomatic/embassy system,” he added. “Congress has directed this and has been providing massive funding for years, but the CIA has not complied. Establish strict accounting and audit procedures for federal funds, as is already required by law.”

We were moved to bring this up by an apparent kerfuffle set off by an AP report that noted the CIA’s participation in the new High Value Interrogation Group, kind of a multiagency flying squad for domestic terrorism cases.

“The senior administration officials insist the group can legally be used to question U.S. citizens or foreigners — and that includes the participation of CIA agents,” wrote the AP’s Kimberly Dozier. “But one added that an effort would be made to keep the CIA agents out of the interrogation process inside the U.S. to avoid having defense attorneys call them into court.”

That, in turn, generated a headline on Josh Gerstein’s Politico blog, “CIA sees no legal bar to joining U.S. interrogations,” based on a conference call with an official who spoke only on the basis of anonymity.

The official “seemed eager to rebut the conventional wisdom that the CIA cannot legally engage in any operational activities in the U.S.,” Gerstein wrote.

That would be the "conventional wisdom," yes, and how wrong it is.

In the telling, you’d think the CIA’s domestic operations were pretty limited to listening outside the interrogation room as FBI agents questioned suspects like Faisal Shahzad, scrupulously observing the legal prohibitions against CIA operations here.

Which is not to point a finger at Gerstein or Dozier, of course.

Indeed, a former CIA official hinted at reality by telling Gerstein that "the more meaningful distinction [in what the CIA can do at home] involved not U.S. soil but whether the suspect is a U.S. person [a U.S. citizen or permanent resident]."

Any more than that, however, the CIA is very, very reluctant to own up to.

As for the statement by Jones, a deep-cover operative for 18 years, about the large bulk of CIA assignments being made at home, agency spokesman George Little says, “That’s not true.”

Open Call For FBI Players
"Terrorists," "murderers" among roles cast for Quantico training
http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/0713051fbi1.html

JULY 13, 2005--While eating breakfast at a Cracker Barrel in Fredericksburg, Virginia, Anthony Bradley overhears two men--both of whom have "dark complexions and appeared to be of Middle Eastern descent"--discussing a terrorist attack, perhaps a bombing of a Chicago train station. Occasionally conversing in what sounds like Arabic, the swarthy duo speaks excitedly about the Iraq war and the efforts of insurgents who attack U.S. military personnel. One of the men notes, "It is our responsibility to shed blood for Allah." This is one of dozens of training scenarios presented at the FBI Academy in Quantico, Virginia, where future G-men participate in "role player" exercises geared toward preparing them for similar real-life situations. This glimpse into the Academy's secret training playbook is found in a "request for quote" (RFQ) issued last month by FBI administrators. The bureau is seeking bids from firms that can provide at least 60 civilian role players to staff these training scenarios for 12 months (and perhaps for four option years). The role players portray bank robbers, terrorists, murderers, crime victims, and witnesses. They sometimes carry weapons, engage in paintball shootouts with FBI trainees, and should be prepared to be "handcuffed in a variety of positions (i.e., standing, kneeling, prone, walking backwards on their knees)." On the following pages are excerpts from the bureau's RFQ, submissions for which are due July 18. Along with describing a role player's physical requirements and what kind of weapons are used in training exercises (which often occur at Quantico's Hogan's Alley facility), the 140-page document details scenarios a prospective contractor will have to staff, including episodes involving the delivery of a bomb to the home of a federal judge, more radical Islamists, an assistant pastor who sleeps with underage girls and kills his pregnant wife, and a nuclear power plant employee who has stolen blueprints in anticipation of peddling them to a North Korean intelligence officer.

Times Square FF occured during NLE10 and during bomb drill exercise intended to stop anti-war and anti-opium trade sentiment and usher in precrime surveillance systems
