The CIA’s constant affirmative action promotion of a female agent, who bore responsibility for the 9/11 attacks, cost more American lives in yet another Al-Qaeda attack.
CIA Chick Affirmative Action Caused This Attack on a CIA Base, 8 CIA Operatives Murdered
If a corporation sustained a catastrophe like the 9/11 attacks due to the incompetence of its execs, those execs would certainly be fired, and the company would probably be out of business. But not the CIA (or the FBI). Not a single head rolled after the 9/11 attacks. In fact, many responsible for lack of cooperation and other incompetence . . . well, they got promoted. A recent USA Today headline summed it up when it shouted that death is more likely than being fired from a federal government job. Add to that the fact that the CIA, like all government agencies is rife with affirmative action based on gender and race . . . and you get a disaster. In the case of the CIA, that disaster was Jessica Matthews **** UPDATE: some of her friends have contacted me and noted her name was Jennifer Matthews, not Jessica Matthews, but the book reviews say Jessica Matthews ****, promoted every step of the way because she had a vagina, not the experience and qualifications needed for the job.
As you’ll recall, in late 2009, Palestinian Jordanian Muslim doctor Humam Al-Balawi a/k/a Humam Khalil Abu-Malal Al-Balawi entered a secret CIA base in Afghanistan and blew himself up, as well as seven CIA officers, a Jordanian intelligence officer, and a CIA-trained Afghan driver. It was the largest single murder of CIA operatives in a single day, since the 1983 Hezbollah bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut. And those murders resulted because of a screw-up by Matthews, the CIA chief at the base.
Al-Balawi was supposed to be a double agent, infiltrating Al-Qaeda, but really working on behalf of the U.S. But, in reality, he was a triple agent, working for Al-Qaeda. Al-Balawi is the subject of the new book, “The Triple Agent: The al-Qaeda Mole who Infiltrated the CIA,” by Joby Warrick.
Get Yours . . .
And in an interesting review of the book, the Los Angeles Times’ Bob Drogin notes this information from the book:
The CIA base chief, Jessica Matthews, had spent only three months in Afghanistan. She was a hard-charging Al Qaeda expert back home, and played a role in the water-boarding of a terror suspect. But she had never served in a war zone, run a surveillance operation or handled an informant. And she was desperate to erase a stain on her record: An internal report had named her as one of the CIA managers who bore responsibility for bungling intelligence before the Sept. 11 attacks.
[Emphasis added.] And of course, the CIA did the usually, “Well, everyone screwed up, so we won’t blame anyone.” Again, that’s not how it works in the private sector.
Humam Al-Balawi a/k/a Abu Dujana Al-Kurorasani
After the bombing, an internal CIA investigation concluded that no single U.S. intelligence officer was to blame. But just as in the Sept. 11 attacks, “managers at every level were blinded to warnings and problems that would seem screamingly obvious in hindsight,” Warrick writes. The problem was “the eagerness of war weary spies who saw a mirage and desperately wanted it to be real.”
Former Army intelligence officer Jeff Stein of Spy Talk is even more blunt about Matthews’ blameworthiness:
CIA base chief Jessica Matthews, apparently discarding misgivings by more veteran operatives, planned to welcome Balawi with big smiles and a cake. She assembled her team in the gravel yard in front their building as the car carrying the treacherous agent approached on Dec. 30, 2009.
Bet she never baked a cake at home. But, hey, for a triple agent terrorist, smiles everyone! Hmmm . . . Jessica Matthews bungled intelligence before the 9/11 attacks, and yet not only was she not fired–and not even demoted–but she was promoted to base chief of a key secret base in Afghanistan, despite having zero necessary experience. And, per usual with unqualified chicks with power, she ignored the warnings of actually qualified, experienced CIA vets who had reservations about the “double agent.”
See, this is the problem with our government. As I noted, not only do the feds NEVER fire incompetents–including this chick who aided the murder of 3,000 Americans through her bungling–but they promote them repeatedly, especially if they have female internal plumbing or the right skin tone. Trust me, Al-Qaeda ain’t employing affirmative action. If you’re in Al-Qaeda and you screw up, you’re dead . . . with your body parts spread in different locations. Not saying we should do that. But this chick should have lost her job within a week of the Towers going down.
Jessica Matthews cost eight CIA operatives, including seven Americans, their lives. And so did the CIA’s affirmative action policy that let her not only keep her job after 9/11, but get promoted beyond her capabilities.
When will we learn to put America’s security needs before the needs of boobs solely because they have boobs?
