C.I.A. Afghan base targeted.   Leave a comment

Unfortunately today Canada lost four soldiers and a female journalist in a bomb blast in Khandahar City. 

In Khost, Afghanistan a suicide bomber killed eight American civilians.  It has now been revealed that the base is a C.I.A. Special Activities Division base.  The acronym is SAD. 

The Special Activities Division (SAD) is a division of the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) National Clandestine Service (NCS), responsible for covert action and other “special activities”. These include covert political action and paramilitary special operations. Within SAD there are two separate groups, one for paramilitary operations and another for political action.  The Political Action Group within SAD is responsible for covert activities related to political influence, psychological warfare, and economic warfare. The rapid development of technology has also added computer or cyber warfare to their mission. A large covert operation usually has components that involve many or all of these categories, as well as paramilitary operations.

Special Operations Group (SOG) is the element within SAD responsible for paramilitary operations. These operations include the collection of intelligence in hostile countries and regions, and all high-threat military and/or intelligence operations which the U.S. government does not wish to be overtly associated with conducting.  As such, members of the unit (called Paramilitary Operations Officers) normally do not carry any objects or clothing (e.g., military uniforms) that would associate them with the United States.  If they are compromised during a mission, the government of the United States may deny all knowledge.
