WASHINGTON — The suicide bomber who killed seven CIA employees at a remote outpost in southeastern Afghanistan had been invited onto the base and had not been searched, two former U.S. officials told The Associated Press on Thursday

A former senior intelligence official says the man was being courted as an informant and that it was the first time he had been brought inside the camp. An experienced CIA debriefer came from Kabul for the meeting, suggesting that the purpose was to gain intelligence, the official said.

The former intelligence official and another former official with knowledge of the attack spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly

  • Yes, I had heard that the suicide bomber had been invited there, and that was why he was not searched.

  • No I had not, makes a lot of sense, though. We have got to stop being politically correct and trusting those who cannot be trusted or we are all going to pay the price...

  • Agent, What makes you think this has anything to do with PC and not a lack of following procedure? or a lack of COMMON SENSE?? Blaming PC is an excuse,
