An article on women in the CIA offers, in passing, a grammar lesson.
One of the first experts in the US intelligence community to warn against Al Qaeda, back in 1993, was a senior Central Intelligence Agency analyst named Gina M. Bennett – who has five children. She later wrote a book titled "National Security Mom: Why 'Going Soft' Will Make America Strong." She's quoted as saying, "I was struck by the idea that what I do at home and what I do at work are very similar.... I felt that all I needed to know about national security I learned from my kids."
It puts a new spin on the concept of a "mommy track," doesn't it?
She was mentioned in Eli Lake's recent Newsweek/Daily Beast piece, "The CIA's Secret Weapons," about the bright, dedicated women who serve as CIA "targeters," including "Jen," who tracked Osama bin Laden.
