This NYT alert just came in:
Bomber Who Killed C.I.A. Staff Worked With Jordanian Intelligence
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — The suicide bomber who killed seven C.I.A. officers and one Jordanian intelligence officer last week in southeastern Afghanistan was an asset of the Jordanian intelligence service who had been brought to Afghanistan to help hunt down top members of the Qaeda network, according to a Western official briefed on the matter.
Bear in mind: this guy was an intelligence asset for Jordan, one of our allies, a “staunch friend in the War on Terror”, as G.W. Bush liked to say.
Shouldn’t this cause us to rethink some of our most basic strategies?
How much stupider can we get?
Can anyone say “Catastrophic Failure”?
