CIA ‘terrorist hunters’ to quit in opposition to US president

24 Feb

The CIA is facing a potentially crippling loss of human intelligence from foreign militant groups because some of its best spies in the field are unwilling to work for US President Donald Trump’s administration, Middle East Eye has learned.Contracted agents, some of whom run networks of sources within al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS) group have either quit or threatened to quit amid frustration in the intelligence services since Trump took office last month.These operatives are known as “terrorist hunters” and are both American and other nationalities. They are mostly Muslim and some are allowed to develop their own assets and run their own big budgets.
