Secret intelligence? WHICH PART?
The U.S. military is expanding its secret intelligence operations across Africa, establishing a network of small air bases to spy on terrorist hideouts from the fringes of the Sahara to jungle terrain along the equator, according to documents and people involved in the project.
At the heart of the surveillance operations are small, unarmed turboprop aircraft disguised as private planes.
THEN, get a load of THIS "SECRET" INFORMATION:
A hub for secret network
A key hub of the U.S. spying network can be found in Ouagadougou (WAH-gah-DOO-goo), the flat, sunbaked capital of Burkina Faso, one of the most impoverished countries in Africa.
Under a classified surveillance program code-named Creek Sand, dozens of U.S. personnel and contractors have come to Ouagadougou in recent years to establish a small air base on the military side of the international airport.
Well....I don't imagine one can hide easily in Ouagadougou since it's so flat and impoverished. And I don't imagine our guys all LOOK like they're from Burkina Faso, right? And they now know the code name is Creek Sand, and they know about how many US personnel and contractors are there.....which part is the SECRET?
Is it me, or is this another kind of leak, compliments of the Washington Post?!!
