Date-Rape Agent

January 28, 2009

date rape This is bad.
From ABC tonight:

  • The CIA’s station chief at its sensitive post in Algeria is under investigation by the U.S. Justice Department for allegedly raping at least two Muslim women who claim he laced their drinks with a knock-out drug, U.S. law enforcement sources tell ABC News.

Just as President Obama told the Islamic world, “Americans are not your enemy,” some sex-crazed rapist puts the feud back into fuel for extremists.

Reportedly, Andrew Warren, the 41-year-old CIA station chief in Algiers, had made videos of the sexual encounters and were found in his official residence along with the drugs, Valium and Xanax, the perfect date-rape high-ball.
And apparently this episode wasn’t the first.

  • The time-stamped date on other tapes led prosecutors to broaden the investigation to Egypt because the date matched a time when Warren was in Cairo, officials said.

This incident is not only a slap at Muslims, but a real-burn on the CIA.

  • “This will be seen as the typical ugly American,” said former CIA officer Bob Baer, reacting to the ABC News report. “My question is how the CIA would not have picked up on this in their own regular reviews of CIA officers overseas,” Baer said.
    “From a national security standpoint,” said Baer, the alleged rapes would be “not only wrong but could open him up to potential blackmail and that’s something the CIA should have picked up on,” said Baer. “This is indicative of personnel problems of all sorts that run through the agency,” he said.

Welcome to the age of the real ugly American, Mr. Leon Panetta.
