Bomber at CIA base was a double agent

WASHINGTON – The suicide bomber who killed eight people inside a CIA base in Afghanistan claimed to have information about Osama bin Laden's second-in-command, and was being recruited as a double agent to infiltrate al-Qaida, a former senior U.S. intelligence official and a foreign government official confirmed Monday.

Have you heard about this?

  • Raise your hand if you are surprised

     looking around the room

    nope  no hands raised

    It bugs the crap out of me that the CIA was surprised in this way

  • LOL! I don't see any raised hands either. And it bugs me, too, Sweet. We are at war with these people. Have none of our present agents read any history (or novels, for that matter?) because double agents have been known to exist for a long time, now. This is one case where I believe it is appropriate to say that someone acted "stupidly". I'm just sorry it had to happen, and end like it did.
