The bomber, Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, was a 36-year old doctor from Zarqa, Jordan, the home town of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the late head of al-Qaeda in Iraq, accordign to a report on NBC News.
The learned anal-ysts must be scratching their heads: what makes an intelligent man, an educated man, a Jordanian doctor blow Â himself Â up among 7 CIA agents? He must have been lonely, misunderstood. But… isn’t poverty supposed to be the cause of terrorism? And wasn’t this guy a “moderate”?
Yep. Always trust your doctor to save lives, right? Hmm, except when it comes to Mohammedans. Islam seems to make them want to kill and die for Allah, and kill he did, including himself. Muhammad’s 72 houri’s should be pleased….
Al-Qaida double-agent killed CIA officers
Officials: Perpetrator of Afghan attack was supposed to infiltrate al-Qaida
- Islamic suicide bomber who killed six CIA officers was trusted CIA informant
- U.S. jihadists in Pakistan: “We are not terrorists. We are jihadists, and jihad is not terrorism.”

Initial reports said that the attack, which killed seven CIA officers, was carried out by a member of the Afghan National Army.
Close relations with Jordanian intelligence
His handler was a senior intelligence official, identified in Jordanian press accounts as Sharif Ali bin Zeid.
As I have pointed out many, many times, there is no reliable way to distinguish a peaceful Muslim from a potentially violent jihadist. It isn’t as if there is one sect of Islam that has renounced and rejected violent jihad and Islamic supremacism, and another that upholds such things. If that were the case, one could rely on the peaceful group and shun the group that taught violence. But contrary to popular belief, every mainstream Islamic sect and school of Islamic law teaches the necessity to subjugate unbelievers, by force if necessary, under the hegemony of Islamic law. The U.S. government, of course, denies this fact and bases numerous policies upon the assumption that the vast majority of Muslims share universally accepted notions of human rights, and abhor jihad terrorism. This is the fruit of that false assumption.

Bomber Who Killed C.I.A. Staff Worked With Jordanian Intelligence
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan â€” The suicide bomber who killed seven C.I.A. officers and one Jordanian intelligence officer last week in southeastern Afghanistan was an asset of the Jordanian intelligence service who had been brought to Afghanistan to help hunt down top members of the Qaeda network, according to a Western official briefed on the matter.
Bear in mind: this guy was an intelligence asset for Jordan, one of our allies, a “staunch friend in the War on Terror”, as G.W. Bush liked to say.
Shouldn’t this cause us to rethink some of our most basic strategies?
