Oh wow, dudes! Like this author must have done a fabulous job when he was with the Agency, since after all, the Taliban attack at will in Afghanistan and Iraq appears to be fairly well occupied by ISIS. Fabulous job, dude! Were you involved, by chance, with that missing $17 billion in Afghanistan? That missing $8.7 billion in Iraq? Hmmmm.....? Any knowledge of the CIA and Unocal arming and financing the Taliban in the 1990s? Hmmmmm? Victor Marchetti was an honest author about the CIA, and at least he never stayed at 5-star hotels and ate at 5-star restaurants while doing extreme renditions! [Which he didn't do.] And great job with al Qaeda, and all those branches everywhere: al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, al Qaeda in Pakistan; al Qaeda in Afghanistan, al Qaeda in Iraq, al Qaeda in Syria, et cetera, and oh yes, al Qaeda on Wall Street!
