Did Pakistani Intelligence Poison the CIA Station Chief After Bin Laden Raid?

In the weeks following the takedown of Osama bin Laden, the CIA station chief in Pakistan, Mark Kelton, came down with a mysterious ailment. It was so bad that at times he was doubled over in pain.

Unable to be treated in Pakistan, Kelton was sent home. But many of his colleagues and co workers at Langley and throughout the U.S. government speculated that Kelton had been poisoned by the ISI — the Inter-Services Intelligence agency.

    “Unable to be treated in Pakistan”now that is some unintended humour there. He could have been treated alright, with the same “medicine” that doubled him over in pain. He’d be dead by now. They need to get Carrie on the job.

    Or maybe the food quality in Pakistan stinks.

    Over 100,000 Americans are hospitalized yearly for food poisoning — a fact the restaurants don’t want to publicize.


    Not that the Paks wouldn’t mess with a CIA officer if they could…

    • Wow, it really does make you think twice about dining out.

        I got awful sick once from pizza in a major chain, maybe RoundTable — how hard is it to make decent pizza??!

          I worked in hospitality for twenty five years.
          Food poisoning is an occupational hazard.

    The Pakis are not our friends. That’s why we call them Pakis.

    Also, we call them Pakis because they smell and don’t eat with a fork.

      I don’t mind East Indians, though.
      Won’t eat their food.

    And America keeps funneling money to Pakistan.

    • Yes indeed, it is madness.

        Governments figure they gotta make nice with nations that are nuked up to maintain communications & stuff.
