With respect, here you go again, wishy washy, say Timmons is a fraud now the company leies, so which is it?
Who has most to gain?
Who admits fault?
Who has independent witnesses that no one has spoken to?
Who has documents supporting the military ballsed it up?
The company in question has a long extensive and documented history of the things Timmons reports.
The US Armed Services report, that I suggest you read, also supports Timmons accounts.
For you to suggest Timmons was at fault and he should be tried makes me wonder what are you drinking these days?
Timmons stood up tried to report those aiding the enemy and who were involved in illegal activities, some activities, involved, Fraud, Hiring
insurgents, having a forged operating licence, the transportation and redistribution of RPG’s under the noses of the Authorities at Bastion where
RPG’s are the same type of weapon used in the attack at Bastion killing Military staff.
The report of RPG’s at HRDC / Bastion by Timmons, to the so called well trained military security at bastion, as you state, was grossly ignored and
in fact the report was given back to the Same company hiring those involved with the illegal arms and Timmons has those documents from the military
proving this fact.
So, they admit to what he claims regarding his detention, but claim it was for some other reason? Why, exactly, would he need to be treated in such a
fashion to be "safe", is what I want to hear an explanation for! Sounds like they are lying. If they lie about one thing, why trust them on others?
You asked why the company treated Timmons the way they did.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to work this out but for those with doubt the main motives was Money fraud and self preservation of those
concerned which involved only a top few but affected the survival of the whole company, so the company tried to hide everything and paint Timmons as a
disgruntled employee hoping they confiscated all evidence hence why Timmons was dragged pilar to post and searched so many times.
Again this is interesting because you have documents emanating from the company admitting fault and now have multiple independent eye witnesses that
the so called investigators never spoke to.
Simply put the investigation was a sham, it was not done in a timely fashion, no one listened, there were conflicts of interest, and no one spoke to
any other witness other that the main perpetrators who naturally denied everything, then the company write it did occur!
I also suppose the other reports re compass illegal activities and the US Armed Services Report was wrong too?
Another point you may be unaware of, the company failed to supply its employees with critical information about them having a lawful obligations under
contractual agreements, US and ISAF Military regulations and US legislation relating to reporting certain activities to the military where the company
deliberately withheld this information and was only available to certain company managers who had privilege to the company library containing the
withheld information. Timmins now also has this as proof.
Another point, you stand corrected on, your link you refer to (www.kdab.afcent.af.mil...
which was published after and has no bearing on matters, however at the time there were and still are specific and more exact military directives
pertaining specifically to illegal arms and illegal activities of PMC’s in Afghanistan where Timmons was trying to adhere to those directives and
requirements but was aggressively prevented, held against his will under armed guards, (also admitted in writing by the company) incommunicado at
differing locations where his requests to be taken to the military police were flatly denied.
If Timmons had not reported what he discovered he could be subject to the MEJA which is another topic pertaining to who has jurisdiction and if you
don’t know what MEJA is you may want to brush up on it.
the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act (MEJA) was a bill passed in 2000 that allowed persons who are "employed by or accompanying the armed
forces" overseas may be prosecuted under the Military Extraterritorial Jurisdiction Act of 2000 for any offense that would be punishable by
imprisonment for more than one year if committed within the special maritime and territorial jurisdiction of the United States.
"Employed by the armed forces" is defined to include civilian employees of the Department of Defense as well as its contractors and their employees
(including subcontractors at any tier), and, after October 8, 2004, civilian contractors and employees from other federal agencies and "any
provisional authority," to the extent that their employment is related to the support of the Department of Defense mission overseas.
This particular Company concerned is registered as a supplier of security services to the US Government with a Central Contractor Registration (DUNS:
561680427) and is also registered with the United States Central Command (USCENTCOM) . The are an authorized provider of security services for supply
chain operations supporting US service personnel.
Aiding and arming the Enemy, Mass fraud, US citizens involved in crime, Assault with intent, Kidnapping, Preversion of justice, Ilegal armes,
Asceesory to Murder and manslaughter are just a few that would be punishble by imprisionment so yes the company treated Timmons the way they did to
prevent these facts be known for obviouse reasons.. You can seen now why the company tries to paint timmons as disgruntled as so no one will listen
fut they can’t hide the facts and forever!
So to have the USA Authorities bork at excercising its Authorty where they have jurisdiction, so the reason needs to be explained to the public
especially the families unessasaraly KIA as to why the many Authorities that Timmons contacted didn’t do anything other than a cursery look and a
big brush off which took this long and now wont even talk to those who can verify Timmons story., heads need to roll …
I can’t wait to see what dribble CID wrote in their report and hope I can get a copy soon.
Furthermore, There was a Military Technical Agreement in place between ISAF and GIRoA, which a copy of was sent by to me by your so called expert
military at Bastion, 12 April 2011 outlines No foreign national can be held accountable in Afghanistan by any Afghan authority for any crime committed
in Afghanistan and those committing crimes can only be held accountable by the authorities from their own country of origin! (yes- figure that one
out but this is the loophole that PSC flaunt)
For those committing crimes. The Authorities from their country of origin say no, we can’t do anything so the perpetrators go free!! Outraged? me
Don’t Worry I have seen the document from Varying countries Authorities stating this very fact!
The Authority administering MEJA and the DoJ has No Balls to enforce it or even look at the new evidence hence the necessity to get this information
out so some someone with enough care can possibly do something about it.
It is sickening that coalition lives could have been spared if this was properly investigated.
One more thing, apart form changing your mind ever five minutes, you seem educated enough to know by now, No PSC can carry RPG’s
Lookup Procedure for Regulating Activities of Private Security Companies in Afghanistan document 8 if I recall correctly, and there are many other
MIO, ISAF and DoD Directives and regulations specially outlawing RPG’s for PSC’s and this includes all contractors, and all subcontractors at all
levels. The company knew that RPG’s are deemed illegal because the company were previously in trouble for the exact same thing a number of times
throughout 2007 – 2010 and the company knew they would not take another blow as this would cause their contract to cancelled by default by the
contracting officer or if the Combat Commander himself had found out, the entire company would be sent home and some individuals would remain in the
stockade and be extradited hence why the company was so aggressive towards Timmons and kept him in isolation denying his request to be taken to the
And your reference to Timmons not being in the Military, You stand corrected again, he Was but retired some years ago and was working for the PSC in
Afghanistan as a site coordiator at HRDC / Bastion, and it was when he was moved to compliance, major problems behind the scenes were reveiled where
Timmons done the right thing, he tried reporting it to the Intell officer at Bastion, NOT HIS BOSS..
Timmons after he was move over to complaiance and then finding major problems he attempted to report to the authorities accounts of illegal weapons
being transported, stored and redistributed, Taliban Staff, Shootouts in the compouns, company abuse and numerous Illegal activities of the PSC but
in particular the Safety concerns for personnel, ISAF convoys and its forces, Taliban infiltration and a raft of other concerns in and near camp
Bastion and at the Bulk Fuel instalation.
