Let’s Not Forget Duane Andrews and SAIC

Posted on June 4, 2014 by Kevin Ryan
Both before and after 9/11, one private company had a greater impact on counterterrorism programs in the Unites States than any other. That company, Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), also profited more from the events of 9/11 than any other. Its chief operating officer (COO), Duane Andrews, was a man who had expertise-level knowledge of the vulnerabilities that were exploited on 9/11. He also just happened to be a long-time, close colleague of Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
SAIC feeds on terrorism, having won many of its record number of government contracts through the national security state that has arisen via the War on Terror. Through its numerous contracts and employee security clearances, it has become a private business that cannot be distinguished from a permanent form of government. In short, SAIC is “the fraternal twin of the intelligence establishment.”[1]
With regard to 9/11, SAIC’s impact cannot be overstated as the company:

Created the national databases that tracked and identified terrorists

Supplied U.S. airports with terrorism screening equipment

Predicted and investigated terrorist attacks against U.S. infrastructure including national defense networks and the World Trade Center (WTC)

Helped create the official account for what happened at the WTC both in 1993 and after 9/11

Was a leader in research on thermitic materials like those found in the WTC dust[2]

Employed the leader of the robotics team that scoured the pile at Ground Zero, using equipment capable of eliminating explosives

Provided the information to capture the alleged mastermind of the attacks, Khalid Sheik Mohammed (KSM)
Furthermore, Dick Cheney’s long-time protégé, Duane P. Andrews, ran SAIC’s government business for thirteen years, from 1993 to 2006, and was therefore a principal character in these activities. During this time, Andrews was also a leading corporate representative on government commissions and taskforces that evaluated threats to U.S. defense and information systems.
