Accidentially, i stumbled upon interesting two articles. One, about the CIA organising a fake vaccination programm to advance the location efforts of Osama bin Laden. And one about Pentagon’s effort to create an online tool Lifelog. After that, I started looking into the investments of In-Q-Tel, a company which through which the CIA invests in Startups to supports emerging and cutting edge technologies, which could advance the defense of United States and it’s partners.
The CIA organised a fake vaccination programme in the town where it believed Osama bin Laden was hiding in an elaborate attempt to obtain DNA from the fugitive al-Qaida leader’s family, a Guardian investigation has found.
As part of extensive preparations for the raid that killed Bin Laden in May, CIA agents recruited a senior Pakistani doctor to organise the vaccine drive in Abbottabad, even starting the “project” in a poorer part of town to make it look more authentic, according to Pakistani and US officials and local residents.
The doctor, Shakil Afridi, has since been arrested by the Inter-Services Intelligence agency (ISI) for co-operating with American intelligence agents.
A day after this article (and presumable a day after Pentagon kills lifelog), Facebook is rebranded to facebook. And continues to develop the functionalities that Lifelog should have. Now Facebook, together with Instagram, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger is the perfect Lifelog. One could say this is a coincidence. But maybe it wasn’t. But then again, Facebook was funded by Peter Thiel, who is also the Founder of Palantir. A Company whose first customer was the CIA. You would need to go at great lengths to dismiss these connnections as coincidence.
