The SOD Rules: DEA’s Army of 18,000 Informants Pocketed $237 Million Over Five Years

The Intercept covers the costs of the manufactured war on manufactured drugs tat manufacturs informants to manufacture cases that are manufactured using manufactured informants:

“Because DEA’s files do not detail the universe of information provided by its sources, it is unable to examine their reliability and whether they frequently or rarely provide useful information, or whether the information DEA agents acted upon resulted in identifying individuals involved in illegal activity or instead caused DEA to regularly approach innocent civilians for questioning,” the audit noted.

When researching organized stalking, gang stalking, etc., it is not uncommon to encounter a tormentor aka a ‘perp,’ mocking or deriding a ‘targeted individual’ with statemnts like:
1) ‘yeah, hey can break all these laws and never be prosecuted cuz they dont write anything down.’

2) ‘no touch torture leaves no marks behind.’

3) ‘how much do they pay these guys-where do they get the money to follow me around.’

-and so on.

The Intercept covers the costs of the manufactured war on manufactured drugs tat manufacturs informants to manufacture cases that are manufactured using manufactured informants. 

Seems legit….
Published Thursday by the DOJ’s Inspector General, the audit reports that from 2010 to 2015, the DEA boasted more than “18,000 active confidential sources assigned to its domestic offices, with over 9,000 of those sources receiving approximately $237 million in payments for information or services they provided.” By comparison, the FBI is said to maintain a roster of some 15,000 informants.
Exactly how useful the DEA’s sources are is unclear — even, apparently, to the DEA itself.
“Because DEA’s files do not detail the universe of information provided by its sources, it is unable to examine their reliability and whether they frequently or rarely provide useful information, or whether the information DEA agents acted upon resulted in identifying individuals involved in illegal activity or instead caused DEA to regularly approach innocent civilians for questioning,” the audit noted.
“We are deeply concerned about this inability to assess source reliability, which seriously impairs DEA’s ability to oversee and manage the activity of these sources and the Confidential Source Program overall.”
Built on 50 interviews with DEA and DOJ officials, the report examined data from nine field site locations, as well as the agency’s Office of Special Intelligence and its Special Operations Division.
So-called limited-use informants, the audit found, are among the highest earners in the DEA’s ecosystem of sources, with 477 such informants earning an estimated $26.8 million during the period the DOJ examined — an average of about $56,000 per source.
Ostensibly, limited-use sources are “tipsters” who require the lowest level of supervision and operate independent of law enforcement direction. In reality, the DOJ reports, these sources have frequently worked hand in hand with the DEA, often for many years, sometimes for decades, unbeknownst to their employers. Many are cultivated by DEA interdiction units, which typically target “employees in the travel and parcel industries with access to passenger information or private facilities,” who are then “paid to conduct searches on proprietary databases, or access packages shipped through private companies, to provide traveler and package information to the DEA to assist in interdiction activities.”
