This British female, Linda Norgrove, worked for U.S. Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI) which is far from being a true aid organization. U.S.A. has been privatizing U.S. wars of aggression with so-called civilian contractors, mercenaries and providers of logistics, arms, spying and information support by employing Development Alternatives, Inc. (DAI), Louis Berger Group, National Endowment for Democracy (NED), U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and others under the guise of "civilian aid" when in reality they serve U.S. forces, their wars and interests. Wherever you find chaos, carnage and plunder instigated by U.S.A., you will find these groups working for U.S. interests in those countries. Dressing up workers in civilian clothes, while serving U.S. interests and wars of aggression, does not make them true "aid" workers helping those suffering under the boots of U.S.A.. They are aid workers for U.S. military and wars. It is well known that DAI, USAID and NED are CIA fronts, pretending to be helping locals while all along are involved in destabilization, subversion and revolutions in various countries to suit U.S. needs. Former CIA case officer Philip Agee affirmed that DAI, USAID and NED "are instruments of the U.S. Embassy and behind these three organizations is the CIA." They use tactics of espionage, infiltration and subversion to promote U.S. interests. The field representative maintains close collaboration with other embassy offices in identifying opportunities, selecting partners, i.e recruiting agents, and ensuring the program remains "consistent with U.S. foreign policy", promoting Washington's interests, despite the targeted country's sovereignty. The same is true of U.S. NGOs that have been responsible for various "color revolutions" in former U.S.S.R, such as Georgia. Vladimir Putin threw them out after the various "color revolutions" when he realized that the same was planned for Russia. They tried to overthrow president Chavez of Venezuela. In December 2009, Cuba captured an employee of CIA front organization working in Venezuela. They also tried in Gaza against the democratically elected Hamas government and Palestinians - many of us know the Palestinian situation. In mid 2007, after Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad tried to overthrow the democratically elected Hamas government with U.S. training and support but Hamas stopped them, when Israel blocked all shipments to and from Gaza, including much of the water, food and fuel, NGOs in Palestine were ordered by USAID to quickly devise projects that will help the West Bank and not one dollar was to be given to Gaza. They wanted to show Palestinians that Mahmoud Abbas and Salam Fayyad with the help of U.S. funding, were good for Palestinians and the only way to live, hoping to turn Palestinians against Hamas and to embrace Israel and U.S.A.. NGOs were also directed by USAID to let the Palestinians in West Bank know that U.S.A. and its funds were responsible for their well being. This is USAID, NED, DAI and many such U.S. organizations. In his book titled, "Inside the Company: CIA Diary", former CIA case officer Philip Agee wrote, "No matter how paranoid or conspiracy-minded you are, what the government is actually doing is worse than you imagine". Another former CIA officer, Miles Copeland, confirmed the accuracy of Agee's book. Upon resigning from CIA, Agee became an active opponent of CIA practices. If there are any true civilian aid workers in the war zones of Afghanistan or anywhere else, they have been compromised by the presence of U.S. "civilian" workers pushing Washington's agenda of carnage and plunder.
