DoD allegedly investigating “terrorism-related” acts by US Military and contractors

The new Department of Defense Inspector General’s report, “Contingency Contracting: A Framework for Reform” (14 May 2010), reveals that the Defense Criminal Investigative Service (DCIS, the criminal investigative agency working for the DoD’s Inspector General) has nine open investigations into alleged “Terrorism-Related Acts” by “U.S. contractor personnel, U.S. Military, Government personnel.

The “terrorism-related” investigations are part of more than 220 open investigations in DCIS’s “Global War on Terror Investigations.” These investigations are grouped into three predominant investigative categories: Public Corruption; Procurement Fraud; and Theft and Technology Protection.

The report does not add any detail as to the ongoing investigations, nor any comment has been provided to the press.

The report is also noteworthy in that it documents how private contractors working for US Special Forces have been allowed to “perform inherently governmental functions”.
