McChrystal Working For UAE-Owned Arms Brokerage

weaponsFrom an office park a few miles south of Washington’s Reagan National Airport, recipe a little-known company named Knowledge International LLC does $500 million a year in business.

The firm is among the defense procurement companies owned by the Emirates Advanced Investments group, buy information pills which is close to the ruling family of the United Arab Emirates. But unlike the other companies in the network, capsule such as Abu Dhabi-based C4 Advanced Solutions, Knowledge International is incorporated in the United States.

Fully licensed as an arms dealer and broker, the company sends American trainers and arms to the UAE, arranging the necessary licenses and agreements with the State Department and the Defense Department.

The company’s strategic advisory board consists of some of the past decade’s brightest names in American land warfare: retired Army Gen. Bryan “Doug” Brown, who headed up the U.S. Special Operations Command; retired Gen. James Conway, former commandant of the Marine Corps and a charismatic figure during the 2003 Iraq invasion; and retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal, who commanded the International Security Assistance Force, NATO’s Afghanistan command.

A former Special Forces general with a storied career, McChrystal was the architect of President Obama’s Afghanistan war strategy in 2009. But his career ended in 2010 after the publication of “Runaway General,” a Rolling Stone profile that quoted his staff making disparaging remarks about Obama administration officials.

The controversy made him a household name, forced him to resign and sparked a debate over Afghanistan counterinsurgency doctrine. It did not prevent him from following a well-worn path from four-star rank to corporate boardrooms.-[source]
