Just when you think the government is already super shady, you find out more and you realize they are even shadier than you thought.
That is what this news report does to your thinking since it is highly disturbing.
Ok, take a deep breath and here we go.
Sources reveal that the Pentagon has been running a secret project and that it is in control of roughly 60,000 soldiers worldwide who use false names and pretenses.
Yeah, and that is just the tip of the iceberg.
This is a staggering number and is roughly five times that of current C.I.A. covert assets.
However, what makes it even more disturbing is that Congress was not aware of this program for the most part at all. I mean, hooowwww???
Just take a moment and think about that…
No one was truly aware that the Pentagon was in charge and controlling an army of roughly five times the size of The C.I.A.’s covert intelligence assets.
Apparently, all of this was under a program known as “signature reduction”, and it remains to be seen what if anything will be done about this.
Here are the details:

The Pentagon reportedly has a secret army of over 60,000 people apart of a broad program called "signature reduction."
The force is said to carry out domestic and foreign assignments, both in military uniforms and under civilian cover, in real life and online.

The Independent echoed the words of The Newsweek report:
A secret army of around 60,000 is carrying out domestic and foreign operations for the Pentagon in a program aimed at minimizing threats to US security, it has been reported.
The force said to be ten times the size of the CIA’s clandestine element, is made up of operatives working undercover, with some of them embedded in top companies around the world, according to Newsweek.
Agents in the “signature reduction” programme, developed by the Pentagon over the past 10 years, are engaged in online as well as real-life assignments and are often soldiers, civilians and contractors who evade detection with false identities.
Newsweek reports that the secret army is carrying out its duties without the knowledge or consent of Congress.

The New York Post likewise reported:
The force is 10 times the size of the covert elements of the CIA, comes with a cost of more than $900 million, and engages about 130 private companies in operations in locales like the Middle East and Africa, the report said.
Despite the undercover army’s size and budget, Congress has never held a hearing on it.
About half of the “signature reduction” force is made up of special forces, the highly trained commandos who pursue terrorists around the world, including in Iran and North Korea.
Military intelligence specialists comprise the second-largest element inside the force.
But the newest and fastest-growing group in the unit is made up of cyber-warriors who use false personas and “non-attribution” or “misattribution” techniques online to disguise themselves so they can track high-value targets, collect “publicly accessible information” and engage in influence campaigns to manipulate social media.
I don’t know about you but this is terrifying and more answers need to be known from it. Please share this story with your friends and other like-minded individuals who want transparency in our government. We need to make us much noise about everything we find out so we can get answers and hopefully, do something about it.
