Last paragraph in Ben Cubby’s story in SMH:
‘As well as its interest in unmanned spy planes, General Atomics has employed human spies. Last year it was caught hiring a former undercover police officer-turned-private investigator to infiltrate Australian environment groups and report on their actions. The former officer was posing as a Kurdish refugee and feeding information back to General Atomics.’
No wonder activists get paranoid about spies – who’d suspect a ‘Kurdish refugee’?
