After bin Laden backlash, CIA promises: No more vaccination campaigns for spying

Amid a deadly backlash again vaccinations and a resurgence of polio in Pakistan, the White House has promised that the CIA will never again use an immunization campaign as a tool of spycraft.

“I wanted to inform you that the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) directed in August 2013 that the agency make no operational use of vaccination programs, which includes vaccination workers,” President Obama’s top counterterrorism and homeland security advisor, Lisa Monaco, wrote to deans of 12 schools of public health. Yahoo News obtained a copy of the May 16 letter.

“Similarly, the Agency will not seek to obtain or exploit DNA or other genetic material acquired through such programs,” Monaco wrote. “This CIA policy applies worldwide and to U.S. and non-U.S. persons alike.”

The Central Intelligence Agency had enlisted a Pakistani doctor, Shakil Afridi, to collect intelligence under the guise of an immunization effort in the city of Abbottabad as part of planning for the high-risk May 2011 raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound there.

The agency aimed to confirm intelligence that bin Laden was at the compound by comparing DNA obtained from children living there to a sample from the fugitive al-Qaida chief’s late sister, the Guardian newspaper reported in July 2011.

CIA Vaccines: Spying or Sterilizing Program?

Comment by Less Prone on May 20, 2014 at 7:55pm

CIA is trying to muddy the waters and confuse people while Bin Laden was already killed in December 2001. In a video interview recorded on 2007 Benazir Bhutto states that Osama Bin Laden was murdered. She was also talking about fighting several terrorist groups like Al Qaida by exposing and cutting their funding. As Al Qaida has turned out to be CIA's branch office it is clear that such expose had to be prevented. A couple of months later Benazir was murdered.
