This is what the headline would read if the US did what Great Britain’s Ministry of Defence did in 2006.

QinetiQ is the British equivalent of Area 51, D.A.R.P.A., Los Alamos, Sandia, and M.I.T. all rolled into one . They are often referenced as the inspiration for the James Bond “Q-Division” from the Ian Fleming 007 series of spy novels.

In 2006 the company was floated on the London Stock exchange.

Nowhere is the Anglo-American “special relationship” more evident than with this organization. QinetiQ, along with B.A.E.S., is one of the largest defense contractors in the war on terror.

It’s extremely controversial because two civil servants became multi-millionaires when the offering took place.
