Keenie Meenie Services“The new company first struck gold in Oman where Walker landed a lucrative contract to train and supervise the special forces of the new sultan. He had just deposed his despotic father in a bloodless coup which was led by two British SAS veterans who had personally confronted the old sultan in his palace and told him he must go. The KMS contract was a million-dollar thank-you from the new sultan, and it effectively established KMS as a permanent military presence in the Middle East, giving British intelligence a foot in the door of a country which has become strategically vital during the Gulf War.”Nick Davies1988
