Yeah, not everybody gets to be James Bond People hear CIA and picture you in some car in a third world country with Binoculars scouting some drug lord, when the rality is you will sit behind a desk at Langley and push paper.
Funny Gazrok, I also looked to Langley in collage as well. In fact I started taking Russian to perhaps become an analyist (I had no illusions about being Bond). But decided to persue other interests when after 12 units of Russian, i had barely scratched the surface

What is the world coming to! The CIA needs doctors in our war on terror to ensure that those we catch are in good health and can stand up to the rigors of our toture.
Could it be that the CIA is on a new mission needing the expertise of doctors who specialize in developing new meds. that could quickly kill and not leave a trace? [/quote
Lets be serious for a minute, the people that read the AMA journal aren't developing new assasination drugs. They're mostly doctors, not pharmacists and drug chemists. THe CIA doesn't need to accept applications to develop new weapons.
That reminds me of the Ukraine leader who got a huge dose of Dioxin. It didn't kill him on the spot, but it sure made him sick as hell and messed up his face pretty bad.
It was an assasination attempt that didn't work, it was probably ingested with food or drink, and the onyl thing that he didn't have his food taster eat or his staff handle was somethign he had at a meeting with the members of the 'old guard' over there, the people the kremlin backs. It wasn't the US or the CIA.
What about Arafat? It has been widely speculated
Speculation is absolutely meaningless. Might as well claim that bin ladin killed Regan. Arafat was an old old man living in extremely poor conditions in a country that doesn't have any real medical care. Is it any surprise that he died? Whats the life expectancy of the average palestinian anyway eh? Arafat was what, in his 70s?
