I'm A CIA Bureaucrat, And Boy Does My Ass Hurt
Because Brad Thor keeps kicking it. Over and over again.
Under Kappes’ stewardship, the beleaguered CIA has been on a rapid downward spiral culminating in one of the deadliest attacks in CIA history. On December 30, 2009, a suicide bomber was driven onto F.O.B Chapman, a key Central Intelligence Agency facility in Khost, Afghanistan where tradecraft and common sense had been tossed out the window. When the bomber detonated, nine people (seven of whom were working for the CIA, including its chief of base) were killed, and six others were seriously wounded.As Thor points out in his piece, the CIA is full of hard working dedicated people who want to do their job to the best of their ability. They're being shortchanged by a bunch of power hungry ineffectual governmental bureaucratic suckups. Sad.
