Xe (Blackwater) revelations

After learning that the CIA had hired the private security contractor Xe (Blackwater) as part of a planned programme to assassinate Al Qaeda leaders, Panetta held an emergency meeting in June 2009 to brief Congress about the programme for the first time.[2]

The Court of Appeals struck down an initial agreement, and the US Supreme Court concurred, arguing that the plaintiffs could not prove they would be affected by the law, so had no standing to contest it.
