How the CIA runs a secret army of 3,000 assassins

How the CIA runs a secret army of 3,000 assassins 23 Sep 2010 The US Central Intelligence Agency is running and paying for a secret 3,000-strong army of Afghan paramilitaries whose main aim is assassinating Taliban and al-Qa'ida operatives not just in Afghanistan but across the border in neighbouring Pakistan's tribal areas, according to Bob Woodward's explosive book.
