    The Pentagon probing an alleged CIA-Contractor spy ring in Afghanistan is simply another White Wash.

    This reminds me of the Pentagon's probe of the Maj. Hassan case of fratricide at Fort Hood. Of course Fort Hood Base Commander Cone is stating he had no clue that one of his own medical officers on his own staff was a strong Taliban sympathizer! BS!!!

    Meanwhile a lesbian Military whistle blower as alerted the News Media that SHE was outed by a mere public police dept. person that came to her home and reported her based on some lesbian photos they reportedly saw in her home!

    All the time with dozens of reports, claims of Muslim extremist rhetoric et. al. by Maj. Hassan's classmates and fellow Army officers and yet Fort Hood Base Commander Cone is stating he had no clue that Maj. Hassan had a radical agenda! BS!!!

    Fort Hood Base Commander Cone should be immediately relieved of his current duty pending a court marshal for gross neglect of his men and gross dereliction of duty which resulted in Maj. Hassan committing one of the largest case of fratricide in US Army history.

    No wonder the economy/industrialization is booming some place else in this planet – what a waste of the taxpayers' blood!
