Nation has obtained a copy of State's
contract with DynCorp -- a contract
that requires all employees to have a "secret"-level
clearance and "not communicate to any person any information
known to them by reason of their performance of services."
Additionally, it instructs DynCorp to "not refer to this
award in any public or private advertising" or in the news
"Looking through it, it's
not hard to see why. The contract reveals DynCorp's Andean aerial
counternarcotics operations to be far more expansive and far-flung
than previously reported..."

Corpwatch has acquired a copy of a $600 million dollar
contract between DynCorp and the U.S. State Department. The company
carries crop fumigation against coca farmers in Colombia, Boliva
and Peru. In Colombia it is also involved in drug interdiction,
transport, reconnaissance, search and rescue missions, medical
evacuation and aircraft maintenance, among other operations.
Only a handful of members of Congress are aware of the details
of DynCorp's operations, despite the fact that they were funded
through U.S. taxpayer dollars. The following is an excerpt from

"Citibank buys Banamex. Both institutions have been linked
to facts in which the powers of money and politics have mixed:
The foreign bank, in relation with the financial maneuvers of
Raúl Salinas de Gortari; The Mexican bank, for the accusations
(above all in the daily Por
Esto!, of Yucatán) that the properties of Roberto Hernández,
friend of Zedillo and of Fox, have been used for drug trafficking
operations. Now, the two institutions unite in pompous matrimony."

"The investigative journalism that's gone on primarily in Mexico
has stood the test under Mexican legal process -- where an investigative
journalist takes on some very big fish. And if the big fish can
then pursue the journalist around the world and threaten the
website wherever it emanates from, that's potentially harmful
to spirited investigative journalism."

"Make no mistake. This court fight isn't about any
particular story NarcoNews has done. It's about ALL of them,
and all of the ones yet to come. And it's a battle over the continued
independence of Internet journalism as well. The silencing of
Al Giordano and NarcoNews isn't a theoretical possibility that
might happen a couple years from now. It's already happening.
Al and his volunteer lawyers are hip-deep in it right now. And
they need our help."
