Still no excuse for letting a local inside without a pat-down.

Actually they decided to pat him down just before he detonated his vest.
But By then he was deep inside the compound ,Never trust an Arab .

With the history of treachery in Afghanistan what it is, how could such experienced CIA field personnel allow the appointment an Afghan as the security director of such an apparently important US base and allow that person to bring other Afghans on the base without them being searched by Americans first?

You have to figure when you go out and try to kill the enemy that the enemy might just try to kill you.

RIP.

Read "Horse Soldiers." The CIA doesn't learn well. No pat-down searches cause the death of the first CIA agent in Pakistan *in late 2001*!

you wrote what I thought. I read the book, too, and was shocked at how "trusting" our guys were. That has to stop in Afghanistan, Iraq and our airports! No mercy!
