Massive corruption and abuse coming from veterans of Iraq private military contractor operations....

Massive corruption and abuse coming from veterans of Iraq private military contractor operations....

U.S. authorities knew of Shi'a militia bomb making cell in Iraq and permitted it to continue its terrorist attacks without interference

WMR has been informed by a former private military contractor in Iraq that the United States was aware of the identities and even the cell phone numbers of several bomb making operatives within Muqtada al Sadr's Mehdi Army. The bomb cells were responsible for detonating a number of bombs in Iraq that targeted Sunnis and coalition personnel, including Americans.

WMR has been provided with not only details of the U.S. allowing the Mehdi Army bomb cell to operate but also information on high level contract fraud involving companies based in Dubai, Qatar, Kuwait, Lebanon, Britain, the United States, Australia, and South Africa. The fraud included Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR), the former subsidiary of Halliburton, both headed up by Dick Cheney before he became Vice President.

What is emerging from this early investigation is that the United States permitted an international contingent of mercenaries and fraudsters to operate openly and without interference in Iraq, especially in Baghdad's Green Zone. Not only did International Zone (IZ) police ignore the corruption and other illegal activities but also actively engaged in them. The corruption and other illegal activities were also countenanced by top officers of the Multi-National Security Transition Command - Iraq (MNSTCI), CIA, and the British military and Foreign Office. General George Casey, now Army chief of staff, and General David Petraeus, former U.S. military commander in Iraq and now head of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), were also named by our source as key players in the fraud and abuse.

There is also credible information that some of the mercenaries, including ex-U.S. Marine Corps personnel, are now operating in Somalia as "maritime security" advisers but may also be involved in providing cover to Somali "pirate" hijackers in the region...

A number of the personnel involved as private military contractors also exhibited racist behavior toward Iraqi employees.

WMR has received a copy of an email sent by an official of one private military contractor to an Iraqi sub-contractor employee. Part of the email follows:

The former Marine is an executive of a private military firm based in Kentucky and formerly worked for the South African mercenary firm Executive Outcomes. He has been under investigation for arms trafficking in Africa and offered to kill or kidnap former Liberian dictator Charles Taylor, who is now on trial for war crimes in The Hague. President George W. Bush reportedly signed a $4 million reward for Taylor's capture after the private contractor in question made the offer to kidnap or assassinate Taylor. WMR has been informed that there is an Iraqi warrant out for the arrest of the former Marine in question.
