WHICH TELLS YOU EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE CIA:

Triple agent was 'CIA's best hope for years' (Rana Sabbagh-Gargourin, 1/06/10, Times of London)

The Jordanian suicide bomber who killed several CIA agents in Afghanistan last week was so highly regarded by Western intelligence that the White House had been told to expect important information from his debriefing, it was reported today.

Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, 36, a Jordanian doctor, had been recommended to the Americans by Jordanian intelligence as a reliable informant spying on the al-Qaeda leadership, according to the New York Times.

He was seen by the CIA and the US Administration as the American intelligence agencies' best hope of tracking down Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri, the leaders of al-Qaeda.


It's just a tragedy that these patriots had to die to demonstrate once again that the agency is, and always has been, not just useless but counterproductive.
