Spies for Hire

The Secret World of Intelligence Outsourcing

Now in paperback, and with a new, updated Afterword, this acclaimed investigative report is the first to expose the massive outsourcing of top-secret intelligence activities in the wake of 9/11.

A major story the government doesn’t want us to know about: Almost everything about the outsourcing of spyingactivities is classified. Shorrock lifts the veil off this disturb- ing story for the first time.

Vital tasks outsourced: Running spy networks overseas,interrogating enemy prisoners, eavesdropping on phone calls, tracking al Qaeda operatives, analyzing intelligence— these vital tasks, traditionally performed by government, are now being outsourced to companies answerable to investors rather than to Congress. 

Authoritative: Shorrock has spent four years researchingthis new phenomenon, drawing on interviews, government documents, and industry contacts. He takes readers inside the intelligence contracting industry, which is worth more than $50 billion a year.
