Nice to see that the CIA's Wilson/Plame/"Iran's not building nukes", etc. politicization has resulted in such high-quality field work...What's worse than waving through a Nigerian jihadi without a body search who's own influential dad had filed a specific red-alert? How about waving in a Taliban jihadi without a body search, who's coming in to be debriefed by a team of CIA officers?:

Bomber Who Killed CIA Members Reportedly Invited Onto U.S. Base in Afghanistan

Thursday , December 31, 2009

The 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 bombing on Wednesday dealt a blow to the tight-knit spy agency. Among those killed was the chief of the CIA post, whom former officials identified as a mother of three. Six more agency personnel were wounded in what was considered the most lethal attack for the CIA since the war in Afghanistan began in 2001 and possibly even since the 1983 embassy bombing in Beirut.
President Barack Obama and CIA Director Leon Panetta were joined by several leading lawmakers on Thursday in praising agency employees for their work. [Two lions of American security, don't you feel soooo safe?--J.O.]
"Those who fell yesterday were far from home and close to the enemy, doing the hard work that must be done to protect our country from terrorism," Panetta said in a statement confirming the deaths. "We owe them our deepest gratitude, and we pledge to them and their families that we will never cease fighting for the cause to which they dedicated their lives — a safer America."
In a letter to CIA employees, Obama said their fallen colleagues came from a "long line of patriots" who had helped to keep the nation safe despite grave risks.
Obama acknowledged that the spy agency has been tested "as never before" since the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Rep. Silvestre Reyes, D-Texas, who chairs the House committee that oversees intelligence, said he had met with members of the CIA team in a recent visit to Afghanistan. Reyes said the nation owes them "a great debt."
"They will forever be in my mind," he said.
The bigger question for CIA operations will probably be whether the agency moves to tighten safety rules for its employees, the former employee said. [QUESTION??!! WHETHER??!! YAH THINK??!!--J.O.]
The incident occurred at a former military base on the edge of Khost city, the capital of Khost province which borders Pakistan and is a Taliban stronghold.
The Taliban claimed responsibility.
Forward Operating Base Chapman used to be a military facility base but was later turned into a CIA base, according to a U.S. official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly.

You'd think this stuff wd be covered in "CIA 101": "Thoroughly search the potential informant from the notorious suicide-bombing militia before sitting him down to a meeting with a group of CIA honchos." Hell, how about "Dinky County Sheriff 101"? The cops won't even give a lift in a patrol car to some stranded soul without first checking their pockets. But hey, let's not worry about a "potential Taliban informant" in the wilds of Afghanistan.

Another thing that bothers me is this emotional cr@p about the poor CIA "mother of three." As far as I'm concerned, she was directly responsible for the security, or pathetic lack of same, at this explosive meeting. If she had survived, she'd need to be fired. I smell some kind of political/glass-ceiling story here, and there is absolutely no room for it in the war against jihad. We need to understand that when our security and intelligence services either willfully blind/restrain themselves, or exhibit such incredible competence, the results will ALWAYS be manifested in rivers of blood, mountains of corpses and body parts, and other assorted mayhem so favored by the jihadis who devote their Satanic lives to snuffing out our civilization.

And these mawkish, pathetic "tributes" after the fact only serve to divert our attention from the main problem, the war The Jihad is waging against us.

Obama is so saddened and "determined" in the face of man made disaster. I wonder why those bad old disastorists just don't get it- that they should be acting nice and letting the wonderfulness of HIM make all the nasty problems go away?

I almost forgot, that IS reality and Obama is just a dream.

"Obama is just a dream."

More like a recurring nightmare...
