Data about contractors in Colombia in 2009

Below is a list of private companies contracted by the U.S. State and Defense Departments in 2009 to carry out activities related to U.S. military and police aid to Colombia. The source is an annual report (4.78MB PDF filerequired by section 694(b) of the 2003 Foreign Relations Authorization Act.

The report is worth a read. Colombia is the only country in the world for which Congress requires the U.S. government to list its military and police assistance contractors, the amounts each receives for its services, the nature of those services, and the risks to contract personnel. In our view, the report offers a degree of transparency – providing important information without jeopardizing personnel security – that should be applied to aid to other countries.

The total amount of funds contracted out in 2009 was US$216.7 million, significantly less than the US$309.6 million total in 2006, documented in the last version of this report that we obtained. This reflects an overall decline in military assistance to Colombia since that year, when such aid was near all-time highs.

military and police contractors

The US government is spending million of dollars for military operations and police securities. They are one of the most powerful and advanced team in terms of facilities, training and intelligence all over the continent and worldwide. They must ensure that these funds will go through legal operations and not on the illegal ones.

There are a lot of illegal systems available to gulp up the money, ensuring you a great return on the outside. Internally they are a racket of scams prevalent across many states and nations too. Since they have no identity and location and are all online, people tend to believe them at first and later realise that a cheating had been done.

The Brit Method is one such illegal system, there to loot the funds and savings of common people, leaving them baffled about their financial status after investing in them. They are all frauds, existing with a great name and a fake profile and account. Once you deposit the initial amount trusting in them, you are no longer required and taken for granted. No queries or any sorts of clarification will be given, and apart from online, there is no point to contact.

There are lots of threats of terrorism that the military force has to answer so they better move fast and act wise.
