To carry out "domestic and foreign" operations, Pentagon uses the largest "secret army" worldwide of 60,000 covert workers
The U.S. Military runs a vast network of soldiers, civilians, and contractors, Newsweek claims, which it uses for underground missions in Germany and abroad.
After a two-year inquiry, the outlet reported that there are around 60,000 people in the undercover army, many of whom use fake identities to carry out their work. In real life and online, the agents of the Pentagon are even integrated into private companies and renowned companies.
It is reported to have 10 times the size of the clandestine services, the massive program, unofficially known as "signatures reduction," making it "the world's bigger uncovered force ever known," claimed Newsweek. However, the true magnitude and scope of the Shadow Army remain a secret. None of you know the full size of the program, and Congress has never heard of the increasing dependence on the military on a reduction of signatures. The massive clandestine military forces appear to have very little or no transparency, even though they continue to "challenge the law of the United States, the Geneva Conventions, the code of militarism and the fundamental accountability," the outlet said.
Approximately half of the force is reported to be composed of special operations personnel who hunt down terrorists in war zone areas and work at "unrecognized hot spots" like North Korea and Iran. The second largest part of the secret army is said to be composed of military intelligence specialists.

But in the Pentagon, the fastest-growing group operates exclusively online. These cyber fighters assume that they have fake identities in order to gather information and to look for information that is open to the public online. They even participate in "influence and manipulation campaigns on social media." Newsweek reported that hundreds of these shadowy keyboard warriors are National Security Agency staff.
According to the outlet, this network supports its operations through 130 private companies and dozens of unknown and secret government agencies. The companies that collectively make over $900 million annually to finance the secret military do anything from foraging documents to creating disguises.
While the officers of the Pentagon usually remain on the radar, Newsweek claims that their coverage has been blown in several cases. In 2013, American diplomat Ryan Fogle, arrested in Russia, supposedly trying to recruit a dual agent, had one such incident. The case was widely covered in media and caused considerable ridicule because of Fogle's seemingly outdated spying paraphilia with wigs, sunglasses, a street map of Moscow, a compass, and the old Nokia telephone. However, an expert who spoke to Newsweek said that a highly sophisticated telephone was probably disguised.
