If true, this is a big deal.

It would be highly unlikely that a CIA officer in his position would be flying in an E11A. His role if anything would be on terra firma monitoring comms and intel from the aircraft and making decisions and calling shots. Itís possible he was onboard but I think not.

the Middle East Monitor article is refuted in these statements.

This is unlikely and already is showing signs of being debunked. Iranian state TV used a photo of an actor from 'Zero Dark Thirty' to spread this theory that a senior CIA official was killed in a plane crash in Afghanistan

US military source says there were NO CIA staff on Afghanistan crash jet after Iranian media claimed officer 'behind Soleimani's death' was among those killed

The plane in question was a USAF Bombardier E-11A communications aircraft . They are used as rebroadcast stations , I doubt very much that the CIA or even a 65 year old man would bother taking a cabbie in one. (D Andrea joined the CIA in 1979. Entry requirements are must have a Batchelor degree followed by an 18 month training course . So most candidates will at least 25 years of age on entry meaning that D Andrea must be at least 65 years of age by now). People that high up and old donít gallivant around the world willy nilliy, nope they leave that to the younger generation.

You have to make a selection! You can't just send an order without a selection.

Please make your selection.

Lol... Nice try, thanks for the click bait...

CIA Chief flying around in a spy plane... Doing what? Taking his own pictures!?

This stuff works on the majority of 8th grade mindsets over there. Counter Intelligence, Spoofing, Ridiculously beyond normal thought, but provides great banter and conversation at Cafe's I guess.

MK... Like the hats

My current "hairstyle" is radically different. Try fitting the hat on a bowling ball, for reference.
