Covert War in North Africa

The CMO closes the door behind him as we step into my office. We are short on time on this pressing issue. There has been a severe increase in covert operations as well as black operations in Northern Africa. Washington has ordered countless small special forces strike teams to American embassies in North Africa, together with an even bigger amount of unauthorized operatives in order to carry out fast precision strikes against terrorists or hostage rescue situations.

The problem is that we need to map all operatives Washington send in order to get a much better picture of the overall arena. Another issues is that most operatives have been on the ground for over six months and have yet to engage into meaningful counter-terrorism as well as counter-intelligence operations. All we currently know is that taxpayers dollars are being wasted. This information comes from confidential sources.

One of our contracts consists of the supply of man power, equipment and capital in the same region for the same purposes on an unofficial base. As an operational base we were given facilities within embassies without the ambassadors knowledge of operations which is standard operating procedure in the intelligence community.

One major issue is the unpreparedness of the official special forces commandos ont´the ground as evident in the Benghazi attack in Libya which killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens together with three other American as al-Qaida militants surrounded a lightly guarded U.S. compound and set it on fire. This incident was very worrisome and happened on September 11th of this year.

We are worried that our assets are at risk, reports the CMO. We need to step up our own operating procedures and potentially move out of embassies and government compounds in certain areas in order to ensure the safety of our assets on the ground. Should one of our operatives be uncovered, captured or killed we may face an international incident which we need to avoid at all costs. Our contingency as well as SAR plans need to be re-examined and streamlined if necessary.

Requests for additional security in Benghazi were repeatedly denied despite a string of attacks on the compound in the months before the deadly attack. So far there are counter-terrorism forces in 75 countries. Those troops are supported by unmanned aerial drone strike forces which have seen increased action as the war on terror has moved away from the public spotlight and focuses more on covert operations carried out by Delta Force units.

The Pentagon denies any joint military operations in the North Africa and the majority of Delta Force operatives represent liaison officers in order to establish contacts in the region and progress has been extremely slow in order to get all parties to pull together on the same string. Unfortunately, global security does not have the luxury to wait for each country to set up their teams and strike against terrorists which is why our firm was given the contract to provide those services to the region.

North Africa has been a hotspot for al-Qaida and their sister networks which have gained control over several regions. Governments ask for outside assistance to reclaim those territories which have been a lucrative market for private military contractors. We will have to revisit our contingency plans and I ask the CMO to gather his staff and proceed immediately and provide me with a report while I get one of our own units to commence operations on the financial side at once.
