CIA Admits To Mistake In "Vetting" Afghan Suicide-Bomber

Isn't it nice hearing B.S. like this ?

Because of the Failed aspects of P.C., Because of outright Muslim Appeasement, Because The U.S. government is an Utter Failure at trying to "Direct" a war, this happened to begin with !

What ever happened to Winning the war "First" then going on a Relationship Building Campaign?

The U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) said Tuesday that it had failed in fully checking out the antecedents of a double agent who carried out a suicide-bomb attack on its forward operating base at Khowst in Afghanistan.

Seven CIA staffers were killed in the attack at the Chapman Base, the worst against American intelligence agencies since the 1983 bombing of the CIA station in Beirut which claimed 17 officers.

The official admission of insufficient "vetting procedure" is contained in a letter from CIA director Leon Panetta addressed to the staff of the agency.

It lists a range of slip-ups, including a major failure on the part of a CIA officer who failed to pass on a warning from the Jordanian intelligence about the attacker being a double agent.

Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, who carried out the suicide attack this January, was a Jordanian national who was regarded as a "prized informant."
