Just wondering, but isn't one of the conditions of being offered a "secret" job that you don't talk about the job to people, you know like on a large public web site?
I know that on the MI5 web site in the UK it says if you apply for work there you shouldn't talk to anyone about your application other then close family
Having a job with access to classified information is not the same as a "classified job". For instance I was in Special Forces for most of my career; it’s not a secret lots of people are. However, what I did and where I went was classified not simply my being assigned to the organization.

Originally posted by AnimatrixHes actually tried to get me to sign up with them for work at the base hes at but I cant work for a company like that.
Nah, Dyncorp has a good rep in the business; they may have botched some things in Columbia but that was a long time ago.
Originally posted by AnimatrixWell, the company im trying to get on board with builds planes and ships, they dont train people that will potentially and may have already, patrolled American streets.
I say that because the only company that I know for sure has done that is Blackwater but im sure that Dyncorp was there as well.

_ I don't really know what's going on there now of course as I am retired.
Originally posted by AnimatrixRetired from what exactly? just curious.
Originally posted by AnimatrixAnd you got me wondering now.. Did Dyncorp provide helis or "troops" to the CIA/DEA in the search for and killing of Pablo Escobar?
but they went right back to whatever they did under some new rules I bet.
