Harold Brown Jr, State Dept Contractor?, killed in CIA Khost bombing
Posted by defensebaseactcomp on January 1, 2010
One victim was publicly identified: Harold Brown Jr., a 37-year-old native of Bolton, Mass., whose wife and three children live in the Washington suburb of Fairfax Station, Va. Mr. Brown appears to have been a relatively new CIA recruit, but had worked for several years in military intelligence or for contractors.
Harold Brown Jr., 37, was in the US base in Khost, Afghanistan, Wednesday when a terrorist evaded security and detonated a bomb, killing eight Americans. Today, the CIA and President Obama acknowledged that seven of those killed were CIA agents. No one would say who employed the eighth American.
Brown’s mother, Barbara Brown, said in a telephone interview today that her son told her he worked for the State Department. She said he had been deployed to Afghanistan since April, and that he was formerly an Army officer who specialized in military intelligence.
