A new federal investigation is being conducted into claims that a CIA agent in Baghdad ordered his subordinates to detonate an i바카라사이트mprovised explosive device (IED) that caused the death of one United States Marine and injured nearly 20 others in December 2001, according to a document obtained by the Washington Post and three other news outlets.

But many U.S. officials dismissed the claims, saying that, despite the fact that several military and intelligence officials had been responsible for monitoring Iraqi plans for weeks before the planned attack, no such information had been leaked to the press. They also said that officials have not been able to confirm the reports, or even trace back the man who originally wrote the report to see if he is still alive.

“If there is a connection to 9/11… if this is one of those instances where you had a guy doing intelligence work that they knew that one or two days before 9/11 was going to happen, and they put out this, I think they would look pretty bad,” said Bob McInerney, a former CIA counterintelligence agent who led a review of the intelligence used to make the initial Sept. 1
