Subject: RE: BS: thoughts on Clinton
There was an article in Atlantic Monthly before WTC which explained why we had no agents on the ground in Afghanistan: the CIA doesn't like assignments where the danger of diarrhea is significant. If you can't handle a particular job from a computer terminal in Arlington, that job is not likely to get done. Field work? Too strenuous.
