In a major security breach concerning U.S. plans, policies, tactics and intelligence operations inside Afganistan which may already have led to the death of at least one U.S. spy, the L.A. Times reported on the 14th they bought stolen U.S. Army computer flash drives at the local bazaar just outside the U.S. base at Bagram, Afganistan. The flash drives allegedly contained Secret information detailing the names (and in some cases photographs) of U.S. spys working against the Taliban & Al Qaeda.

The documents, marked "secret," appear to be raw intelligence reports based on conversations with Afghan informants and official briefings given to high-level U.S. military officers. Together, they outline how the U.S. military came to focus its search for members of Taliban, Al Qaeda and other militant groups on both sides of the Afghan-Pakistani border.

In one report contained in a flash memory drive, a U.S. handler also indicates that the United States discussed with two Afghan spies the possibility of capturing or killing Taliban commanders in Pakistani territory.

The theft of the drives became the subject of a full-scale criminal investigation Wednesday, two days after the Los Angeles Times revealed the black-market operation.

The theft and subsequent sale of computer flash drives at an open air flea market just outside the main gate of the Bagram, Afganistan base is bad enough by itself. However, The information contained on the drives is classified SECRET and concerns the names, locations, etc. of many U.S. informants supplying important data on the locations, plans, etc. of the Taliban and Al Qaeda. In a related story, one alleged U.S. spy has already been found dead with warnings to others that the same fate will soon befall them.

This is a major security breach that someone needs to answer for. When I first posted this article, you could just click on it an it would pop up, now though you'll have to register first--it's free.
