Technology: Thumb Drives in the Middle East and Espionage

     This is an interesting story. My buddy that was working a contract in Qatar, was able to interdict a spy, that was stealing information on the base that he was working on. This device was on a key ring, and looked like a large pencil. The individual had a thumb drive inside this thing and there were numerous photos and documents on it, that they took from various computers on the base.

     I am posting this, because there are a lot of guys reading this that are in charge of gates and entry control, and this is just a heads up as to the kind of stuff that the booger eaters are trying to sneak in. They can actually hide thumb drives in all sorts of stuff now, because of their size, and there are manufacturers that creating all sorts of unique products that might not be too recognizable. This particular set up almost looks like something that is already sold in the middle east, or it could be home made. Either way, keep a heads up for this kind of thing, and the enemy is certainly creative enough to produce these kinds of things.

     And on a side note, my buddy was recognized by his company for a job well done, for catching this guy. No cash award, but they did give him a nice little plack. As for the spy, who knows what they did with him. And if any company managers are reading this, it would be pretty nice of you were to set up a cash award/recognition system for employees that have interdicted spies. It is the right thing to do, and it should be promoted within the organization as an incentive to stop such a thing. –Head Jundi

News: Guard at US Base ‘Stranded’ in Qatar after Being Sacked

     This really sucks for Mr. Dupont and others, and I hope they come out on top in this.  Hopefully, the negative attention placed on Dyncorp with this, will force them to re-write contracts and to be more honest with future employees.  There have been so many incidents like this in the past with Dyncorp and on that contract.  It is really sad.  To me, if a man or woman agrees to put their life on the line for that company and on that contract, then the company at least should have the integrity to be truthful and straight up with those future employees.  -Head Jundi   


Guard at US base ‘stranded’ in Qatar after being sacked

Wednesday, 30 April, 2008, 02:28 AM Doha Time
By K T Chacko
AN AMERICAN security guard recruited by DynCorp International to serve at the As Sayliyah base has been “stranded” in Qatar for over a year after he was sacked by his employers in April 2007.
Christopher Dupont has since challenged his termination in a Doha court but he has been left with no job and therefore no money to sustain himself. “My daughter in the US had to drop out of college and start working to support me,” he told Gulf Times.
DynCorp International is a US-based private military contractor and aircraft maintenance company, which, according to sources, receives more than 96% of its $2bn in annual revenues from the federal government.
Narrating his plight to Gulf Times, Dupont said he had high hopes when he signed the employment contract with DynCorp International in the US and wanted to serve in Qatar for at least five years.
“But things started to fall apart as I arrived here in October 2006. I was forced to sign an employment contract in which the emoluments were less than what had been promised and agreed in the US. Read the rest of this entry »
