When Spooks Get MBAs

Just when I thought things couldn't get any weirder, it turns out that Blackwater employees were accompanying  CIA operatives on clandestine missions to grab and transport suspected insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan. Seem odd? Not to the agency; according the the December 10 New York Times, a spokesman said,“Contractors give you flexibility in shaping and managing your talent mix — especially in the short term — but the accountability’s still yours."

I'm looking forward to seeing the newest uses of contractors to flexibly shape and manage the talent mix. Will municipalities start hiring Brink's guards to help out with SWAT team chores? In the short term, of course.
