It's been said that the best way to understand the actions of a bureaucracy is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies. There's something of that in this story:

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.

The suspect in the case is identified as Andrew Warren in an affidavit for a search warrant filed in federal court in Washington, D.C. by an investigator for the State Department's Diplomatic Security Service.

A CIA station chief....RAPING MUSLIM WOMEN. If I was an al-Q propagandist, I really couldn't do any better than this. Whatever punishment they give this guy is entirely too good for him. I'd love to turn him loose in one of the seedier neighborhoods in Algiers or Cairo, or maybe southern Lebanon, or maybe even the FATA and just let things take their natural course.
