CIA: Did you know that for many years there was one CIA Operator who was the KEY in bringing down Osama bin Laden and all she got out of it was noses turned up! Supposedly she caused so much trouble with her colleagues that she was even passed over for promotion several times! The Washington Post reports. Why is that?
The real-life identity of the CIA agent portrayed as the heroine in the motion picture of “Zero Dark Thirty” will remain a mystery. According to the CIA intelligence officials the real-life CIA agent who inspired the character in the movie was always making waves in the aftermath of May 2011, as some officials quote:
“She’s not Miss Congeniality, but that’s not going to find Osama bin Laden,” said one former colleague to the paper.
“The agency is a funny place, very insular,” the source added. “It’s like middle-schoolers with clearances.”
What is really sad about the whole thing is that the CIA gave her a cash bonus instead of promoting her and given her a raise and bump in pay grade. She also did not want to share the fame with her other co-workers and was given the CIA’s prestigious Distinguished Intelligence Medal, she responded to emails and was quoted saying:
“She hit ‘reply all’ ” to an email announcement of the awards, a second former CIA agent recalls to Miller. Then, to all of her colleagues, the agent sent a message along the lines of, “You guys tried to obstruct me. You fought me. Only I deserve the award.”
All we know for sure from this point moving forward is that she is now barred from speaking with journalists and the CIA will not comment on it at all.
One thing is for sure, if she was that dedicated to her job and let the frustration show I feel bad. But in the end she accomplished her goal and chalk up one for America! Great job CIA Official.
