Washington Free Beacon ^ | April 5 | Bill Gertz

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA.

CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va.

“We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon.

Let me guess, he blind folded himself and tied his hands and feet before jumping.

Tied his hands behind his own back, put on a hood, wrapped himself up in duct tape and jumped off the building. Clear-cut case of suicide.

Maybe he opposed gay marriage and in so doing ran afoul of the powers that be.

CIA Terror Interrogation: US Senate Intelligence Committee Votes 11-3 To Release Parts Of Critical Report

APR
2014 Saturday 5TH posted by Morning Star in World
Senator Feinstein: Report into interrogation techniques like waterboarding ‘exposes brutality that stands in sharp contrast to our values as a nation’
The US Senate intelligence committee voted on Thursday to release part of a secret report that harshly criticises CIA terror interrogations after September 11 2001.
It voted 11-3 to declassify 500 pages of a 6,300-page review which concluded that waterboarding and other “enhanced interrogation methods” were excessively cruel and ineffective.
The committee and the CIA have been embroiled in a bitter dispute over the study.
Senators have accused the agency of spying on their investigation and deleting files, while the CIA claims Senate staffers illegally accessed information.
The Justice Department is reviewing competing criminal referrals.
Committee chairwoman Dianne Feinstein claimed the report “exposes brutality that stands in sharp contrast to our values as a nation.
“It chronicles a stain on our history that must never be allowed to happen again. This is not what Americans do.”

Sen. Diane Feinstein (D., Calif.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, has said the CIA has blocked efforts by the committee to investigate harsh interrogation of terrorists.

There are just so many things wrong with this sentence, like mentioning "Feinstein" and "Intelligence" in a way that implies they belong together, or "..harsh interrogation of terrorists" who killed over 3000 citizens in one day, on US soil. How can you people in CA elect an idiot like this?

The left released classified info on interrogations to use as a political tools so they get their base fired up? This man maybe had some part in it and feared for his life, families life, regrets,? commits suicide?

I don’t get jumping to your death. Swallow some pills and change your mind? Make yourself throw up. Slice your wrist and change your mind? Get some band aids. Jump off a building and change your mind? Regret it all the way down.

Guy must’ve slipped and fallen from the magic carpet prayer-rug aerial tour hosted by CIA chief ‘Jihad John Bennan.’

When moslems have time to plan, they kill.

When moslems have little time, they panic and kill.

Their menu of options tends to be rather limited.

These things happen, seems to happen to interesting people too for some reason. Accidents too... like the fatal car crash inside the garage.

But maybe he didn't "jump"? If he had any connection to Benghazi-this is most likely "Arkancide".

Also didn't Feinstein complain last week about the CIA spying on her? Now this happens? Strange.

Maybe CIA chief Jihad John Brennan will get ‘sudden jihad syndrome’ and pilot a stolen plane into Feinstein’s living room.

"Was he a financial advisor?

All these bankers jumping off of buildings and now this. As Tony Hillerman's Navaho detective Joe Leaphorn used to say "There are no coincidences".

“It is a California thingy.”

California, the only place I’ve been where people have
actually perfected the art of being a total smart ass.
Even when they are dead wrong and know it they don’t give
up. They know Feinstein is an idiot but to vote against her
would be admission of being wrong about something.
Californian, obstinate righteous dolt.

“In the early morning hours of May 22, 1949, the recently ousted first American Secretary of Defense, James Vincent Forrestal, committed suicide at the Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland [when he] jumped from the 16th floor hall window.”

Ugly suicides are about “making a statement”. Options:
1) Actual suicide: Draw attention to a particular cause; embarrass an organization, boss, spouse, etc.
2) Arkancide: Object lesson for the survivors.

Not con-Vinced, but the discussion is building, one looong step at a time. I'm sure the conclusion left our protagonist flat.

“How can you people in CA elect an idiot like this? “

Someone said of Nancy Pelosi, “Her views do not represent the views of American’s in general, but they do represent the views of her constituents.” The same is true of Diane Feinstein. California became the destination of every fringe. When it filled up with fringe the rest moved out. So, California will continue to gift the rest of us with fringe until some dramatic, sweeping change. (Mass extinction or the second coming come to mind.)
