DynCorp Still Taking the Moral Low Ground

DynCorp is virtually a CIA and Pentagon subsidiary. Its government contracts include operations for Bush's Plan Colombia. Enron's Pug Winokur is on DynCorp's board, and former CIA Director James Woolsey is a shareholder. "A year ago, Kathryn Bolkovac brought a lawsuit against Virginia-based DynCorp...claiming she had been fired by the multibillion-dollar company for blowing the whistle on sexual misconduct, including sex-trafficking, by her fellow DynCorp employees in the Balkans...company officials took the moral low ground -- acting swiftly and decisively to fire the two whistle-blowers...[After a] tribunal further found that DynCorp's dismissal of Bolkovac was an act in 'complete defiance'...the company is considering an appeal...Is this denial or yet another indication of where this company stands on human slavery?" It is bizarrely ironic that this report is from Rev. Moon's Insight Magazine. After all, Moon is the messianic leader of a cult that enslaves people.

Suspected CIA Front Dyncorp Faces Lawsuit for Poisoning Ecuadoran Farmers

Imagine "you are an Ecuadorian farmer, and suddenly, without notice or warning, a large helicopter approaches, and the frightening noise of the chopper blades invades the quiet. The helicopter comes closer, and sprays a toxic poison on you, your children, your livestock and your food crops. You see your children get sick, your crops die." These are the words of Bishop Jesse de Witt, president of the International Labor Rights Fund, in a letter to Paul V. Lombardi, CEO of DynCorp. DeWitt's organization has filed suit in US federal court on behalf of 10,000 Ecuadoran peasant farmers and Amazonian Indians charging Lombardi's company with torture, infanticide and wrongful death for its role in the aerial spraying of highly toxic pesticides in the Amazonian jungle, along the border of Ecuador and Colombia. DynCorp's chances of squirming out the suit were dealt a crushing blow in January when federal judge Richard Roberts denied the company's motion to dismiss the case."

Pug Winokur's DynCorp Charged with Letting Employees Buy Children as Sex Slaves - With YOUR Money

"Middle-aged men having sex with 12- to 15-year-olds was too much for Ben Johnston, a hulking 6-foot-5-inch Texan, and more than a year ago he blew the whistle on his employer, DynCorp, a U.S. contracting company doing business in Bosnia. According to the RICO lawsuit filed in Texas on behalf of the former DynCorp aircraft mechanic, 'in the latter part of 1999 Johnston learned that employees and supervisors from DynCorp were engaging in perverse, illegal and inhumane behavior [and] were purchasing illegal weapons, women, forged passports and [participating in] other immoral acts. Johnston witnessed coworkers and supervisors literally buying and selling women for their own personal enjoyment, and employees would brag about the various ages and talents of the individual slaves they had purchased.' Rather than acknowledge and reward Johnston's effort to get this behavior stopped, DynCorp fired him, forcing him into protective custody." So reports Insight - a Moonie mag, no less!

Pug Winokur's DynCorp Runs the US War in the Andes as a Private Venture

"The Nation has obtained a copy of State's contract with DynCorp [which] reveals DynCorp's Andean aerial counternarcotics operations to be far more expansive and far-flung than previously reported. From its 'Main Operating Base' at Patrick AFB, DynCorp oversees an aerial fleet of forty-six helicopters and twenty-three fixed-wing aircraft which can operate from twenty-three locations spread out over Colombia, Bolivia and Peru. In some cases, DynCorp's operations are not limited to fumigation and search-and-rescue but [also] include maintenance and pilot training, aircraft ferrying, materiel transport, reconnaissance and flying local troops in to destroy drug labs and coca or poppy fields. Politically, the contract's specifics only reinforce concerns voiced by Rep. Schakowsky and others that US taxpayers have been funding a secret war that has the potential to slowly but surely draw the United States further into a poorly understood counterinsurgency conflict." Sounds like the Reagan-Bush covert wars.
