  • US Pentagon outsources kidnap rescue missions. In the US military, few missions are considered more important than rescuing missing or kidnapped troops. So it’s more than a little odd that US forces in Iraq have decided to outsource that operation to Blackbird Technologies Inc., a private company, for $11.3 million a year.
  • US to give spy drones to Pakistan. The United States will provide a dozen unarmed Shadow aerial spy drones to Pakistan for the first time. As we have reported before, the Pakistanis are trying to build their own drones, but the process is taking much longer than initially planned.
