Islamabad, Sep.16 (ANI): The controversial US private security company, Blackwater, is reportedly running a covert recruitment drive through its website in Pakistan.

The company’s website,, appears to be just like any other internet site, but when navigated deeper the real propaganda of the company is revealed.

The hidden pages of this site can only be accessed through four company executives’ references, The Nation reports.

It is in these hidden pages one can find application form for job applicants.

It is here that one can see the effort by this company to hire Pakistanis who speak Punjabi and Urdu - to add to their earlier requirements of Arabic, Farsi and Dari.

Incidentally, there is also a website named www.postbox1048, where requirements are posted for ‘Chauffeur (security)’ for Islamabad and Peshawar and are required to have knowledge of English as well as a HTV driving license.

It may be noted that besides expanding its Islamabad embassy, the United States is also planning to set up a consulate in Peshawar for which it is eyeing the bombed Pearl Continental Hotel. (ANI)
