    The CIA has a history of screw ups and abandoning it's own. Read a "Train to Potevka." The CIA is one government agency that is deserving of our mistrust.

    Mr. Hunt, the entire IMF has been disavowed...

    Good luck. You are on your own.

    A few thoughts on this. First of all, can't we find spys who are from the region and look the part? I mean this guy might as well have been wearing an "I Love the USA" T-shirt when at this "resort". Secondly, since he was abducted, obviously his cover was blown somewhere either before or during his operation. Normally I would have said that the AP, or any other news organization was irresponsible for revealing his CIA connection. Remember all the fuss about Valerie Plames CIA cover being blown, and that was while she was safely sitting at a desk in Langley. It is likely, although no one knows for sure, that since this guy has been held this long he has no secrets left. Iran has gotten everything out of him and more. And believe me it was much worse than waterboarding. Reminds me of when the CIA station chief in Lebannon William Buckley was abducted. Tough way to go. Brave men and patriots, but it brings me back to my origional point. Don't we have spys who come from Iran, speak fluent Farsi, know the place well?
