Sounds to me like plausable deniability. Employ an individual who sits just outside the sphere of influences from government sources. Much like an
intelligence operation similar to the run and gun of Blackwater (Xe). Interesting but not surprising in the least. Here is a couple pictures I found
on Mr. Furlong. Apparently this guy is still Jack Bauer'ing it up somewhere.
From left: Michael D. Furlong, the official who was said to have hired private contractors to track militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan; Robert
Young Pelton, a contractor; Duane Clarridge, a former C.I.A. official; and Eason Jordan, a former television news executive.
