US Fears for the Life of Outed CIA Contractor

Is the US telling us, all the options, all the ways, that Raymond Davis may be assassinated now that he has been made expendable by the US?
We shall see.

U.S. officials believe that Raymond A. Davis, the CIA contractor in Pakistani custody for shooting two men, is in serious danger - even from the guards at the prison where he is now being held.

According to the official, administration officials fear that the Pakistani government lacks sufficient control over Pakistani municipal police, who have Davis in custody.

And this is quite interesting. A fleeting glimpse of just one example of the endless cooperation between the media and the government. So much for freedom of the press!

ABC News was asked by the U.S. government to withhold publication of Davis's affiliation with the CIA, (asked or told?) citing fears that disclosure would jeopardize his safety.

After several foreign media organizations published parts of his background, the U.S. government rescinded its request to ABC News to embargo the information.

And then verified his CIA hitman status themselves

Providing even more additional information!

Davis fired multiple rounds from inside his car, killing one man in the street, while the second died later from his injuries.

Davis then called for help from several other CIA security officers who shared his Lahore safehouse, according to a U.S. official and the intelligence consultant. As they arrived near the intersection, they accidentally (not) hit a Pakistani motorcyclist. The motorcyclist later died of his injuries.

Davis' colleagues were unable to get to Davis before the police arrested him. They left the scene and returned to their safehouse. Within hours, they had destroyed all government documents at the safehouse, abandoned it, and retreated to the U.S. consulate for safety. Both have since returned to the U.S.

Some background on Davis-

Davis first arrived in Pakistan in December 2008, and was posted at various times in Islamabad, Lahore and Peshawar. Until last August, Davis was stationed in Pakistan as an employee of the company once known as Blackwater, now called Xe Services, and contracted to the CIA.

Davis made $780 per day working as a security guard for the agency's clandestine case officers.

In recent years the Pakistani media has asserted that Blackwater was responsible for numerous terrorist attacks in the restive western areas of the country

And they were correct!

So, is Davis going to be killed by guards, municipal police, or militants imprisoned along with him? All of these people could easily be co-opted or bought and paid for by other CIA agents, or agents from other nations(Britian or Israel) Wondering if the US has thousands of killers on the payroll, how many do Israel and Britian have?


  1. I assume Libya is full of such people as Davis.

    - Aangirfan

  2. I would safely assume that also.
