As part of a plan to further ramp up its spying operations worldwide, the Pentagon today announced the creation of another spying unit named the Defense Clandestine Service (DCS).
With the military’s other spying units focusing on spying in places where the military is actually involved, the DCS focus will be on spying in nations that the US isn’t currently attacking or occupying.
This seemingly puts it in direct competition with the CIA, but officials say that the goal will be for the DCS to work closely with the CIA, particularly in places like Iran where the US military doesn’t have an official presence.
Officials say that the DCS creation is part of a major overhaul of all military spying, but declined to offer any specifics on what exactly is being overhauled, insisting that was a secret.
