2010 CIA Station Chief removal in Pakistan

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki



On December 16 2010, a former CIA Station Chief[1] [2] [3] in Islamabad was evacuated from Pakistan.[3]

The CIA withdrew the Station Chief from Pakistan after his cover was blown[3] in a legal action brought by relatives of a victim killed in a drone attack on 31 December 2009,[1] for which the Station Chief was accused of being responsible.[3] The CIA, in a rare move,[3] recalled the Station Chief, citing "security concerns" and concerns about his safety.[4] Neither the CIA nor the US Federal administration officially recognise Station Chiefs, but they are acknowledged to exist by intelligence organizations.[1]
