For the past several weeks, numerous fringe media outlets have published negative stories suggesting that DynCorp International won a large contract in Yemen. Each story sources the Khabar News Agency, which reportedly got the information from an unnamed Yemeni Defense official.
We did a quick Google search and the Khabar News Agency, or Khabar Online, appears to be an Iranian government news outlet and thus is most likely an Iranian attempt to discredit the governments of Yemen, UAE and/or Saudi Arabia.
Given the ongoing press swirl and the fact that most of us as well as our customers have Google alerts, here are the facts: We don’t have a contract to do any work in Yemen.
If asked, let your customers and colleagues know the facts.
