The Washington Post today rolled out its eagerly awaited investigative project, “Top Secret America.” The multimedia production — including video, databases, an interactive map, and a series of stories by Post aces Dana Priest and William M. Arkin — attempts to catalog the massive intelligence apparatus, dubbed by the Post our new “fourth branch” of government, that sprang up after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. (For the skinny synopsis of the Post's findings, check out this summary on The Atlantic's website.)
The project includes a listing of companies that contract for intelligence- and security-related work with the federal government. Among them, it turns out, are six San Francisco businesses. See a list after the jump.
