Sunday, September 25, 2011, a CIA employee was killed and another American was injured in Kabul, Afghanistan by an Afghan working at the embassy. These employees were assigned to the Embassy and working at a remote site in Kabul. The State Department refuses to acknowledge that the employee killed was CIA, which they always do, and should do. CIA employees assigned to foreign embassies are often targets of terrorists and always vulnerable. It almost sounds like a scene from one of Diane and David Munson’s novels. Beginning in November, you might be lucky enough to find a copy of their newest thriller, “The Joshua Covenant” in which CIA agent Bo Rider becomes a target when assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv. Unfortunately, as the U.S. continues the gradual draw down of our military and their support in Afghanistan, we will depend more on Afghan’s to backfill and thereby putting the remaining Americans at even greater risk.
Be Blessed,
Diane and David
