Mike Kelly now appointed to new job with CIA linked Palantir Technologies Australia

ABC News reports: The former member for Eden-Monaro is now working for the CIA-linked security technology firm, Palantir, after resigning from the seat in late two weeks ago. "I am not in a position to retire and have no desire to," Dr Kelly told the ABC when approached about his new role.

"I have been fortunate to be able to take up a job offer with Palantir Technologies Australia that will enable me to work within my physical limitations but still be in a position to make a difference in relation to the issues that matter to me."

A United States tech giant with close links to Western intelligence agencies has appointed former Federal Labor MP Mike Kelly to help drive its rapidly expanding operations in Australia.

The ABC can reveal Dr Kelly has taken up a job with the Silicon Valley based tech giant Palantir Technologies, just days after retiring from Parliament on health grounds. On at least two occasions in recent years, the soldier-turned-politician has publicly praised the work of Palantir, including its reported role in helping track down terrorist Osama Bin Laden. more details : and
