Pentagon's ultra-secretive fuel contractor linked to revolutions in Kyrgyzstan


www.rawstory.com

The Department of Defense paid billions of dollars to an ultra-secretive fuel contractor linked to two revolutions in Kyrgyzstan and turned a blind eye to corruption that threatened diplomatic relations, a congressional report published Monday found.

The 75 page report was prepared by the House Subcommittee on National Security and Foreign Affairs after an eight-month investigation into the Department of Defense's fuel contracts.

Mina Corporation and its associated firm, Red Star Enterprises, have been awarded over $3 billion dollars in contracts to supply Manas Air Base in Kyrgyzstan and Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan since 2003.

Tulip Revolution

This makes me ponder the idea whether all the colored revolutions across the former Soviet states were staged by corporations seeking to exploit the fuel and strategic geographic location for fuel pipelines in the region.

Both the 2010 uprising and the 2005 Tulip Revolution were due to the public’s heavy opposition to the mass corruption occurring in the Kyrgyz government. Apparently both Presidents that were forced out of office had involvement in the fuel supply contracts which many perceived as corrupt.


Otunbayeva demanded, at a meeting of the UN General Assembly in September, that the US government no longer contract with Mina and Red Star.

Despite her plea, the Pentagon awarded Mina with a fuel contract worth $630 million in November.


What’s new? The United States is giving vast amounts of money to extremely corrupt fuel contractors, is this really a surprise though? I mean obviously it infuriates us but it generally is not like a *gasp*. Typical American corporate corruption.

The thing is... It's just like local corruption, like in a small town, only it affects other nations... If the US believes they can do such things why don't they also take responsability for these actions?

Yup just like in the Yugoslavia regions and in kosovo with its AMBO Oil Pipelines, and the newly discovered oil in bosnia by NATO and halliburton.


Sounds like your getting the idea what America is plotting


all these colored revolutions in eastern eupore were staged by corporations and installing pro Washington leaders while under the aims of a so called democracy.

Another thing doesn't it surprise you thread OP all these so called revolutions started in universities?
sounds like the corporations had a mass brainwashing campaign during the 1960s by installing pro american and pro European Union idealism, Pro Washington teachers.

There's a Russian Air Cargo company running AN-124's that had a contract thru NATO or the UN to provide us with airlift support. They were smashing the military equipment up they were flying around for us and ended up losing their contract.

We gave them $$$ and a new contract to keep providing us airlift support.....in exchange for overflight permission of former Russian States.

I wouldn't want to be the poor sap who had to fly a helicopter they flew across the world for us. It's probably been sabotaged.

Our dear leaders do some pretty stupid things to have global air reach. Money and American lives are disposable in the grand scheme of things.

This is a very interesting part of the world. This country has strategic value and is unfortunately a victim of geo- politics.


A gas pipeline that went into operation late last year stretches from Turkmenistan through Uzbekistan up to Kazakhstan's border with China and then extends more than 4,500 kilometers (2,800 miles) into China itself. It was Central Asia's first major gas export route that completely bypasses Russia.

Turkey is acting as a proxy for the US in this region, and unfortunately the blowback on this will be a revival of the Ottoman Empire.
