U.S. companies involved in top-secret work

At least 37 U.S. government contractors in Cuba from 2000 to 2009 have been involved in top-secret work somewhere in the world, Washington Post and FedSpending records show.
In July 2010, the Washington Post identified 1,931 companies that do top-secret work on behalf of the U.S. government (See the Post’s Top Secret America database).
FedSpending records show that at least 37 of those firms also have been contracted for jobs – though not necessarily secret work – in Cuba.
It appears that most or all took place as part of multimillion-dollar upgrades to the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, or GITMO, after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
See the Cuba Money Project for more information.
