The Luckiest Man Still Alive...

CIA operative charged in parking spot fight

"A CIA contractor freed by Pakistani authorities after the families of two men he killed in a shootout agreed to accept a $2.34 million "blood money" payment was charged Saturday after authorities said he got into a fight over a shopping center parking spot.

Deputies responding to an altercation between two men outside an Einstein Bagel in Highlands Ranch, south of Denver, took Raymond Davis into custody Saturday morning, said Sheriff's Lt. Glenn Peitzmeier. He was charged with third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors.

Further details on his arrest, which was first reported by KMGH-TV Channel 7 in Denver, were not immediately available.

Peitzmeier said the victim, who was not identified (and is the luckiest man still alive), refused medical treatment at the scene. Davis was freed from the jail after posting bond, Peitzmeier said.

In January, Davis said he shot two Pakistani men who tried to rob him in Lahore. The case enraged many in the country, where anti-American sentiment runs high.

The U.S. insisted Davis had immunity from prosecution, but he was not released until March 16 under a deal that compensated the victims' families, who agreed to accept "blood money" under Islamic tradition. Pakistan's security agencies came under intense domestic criticism for freeing him."
Sources who refused to comment on the record because they too might be killed by Davis reported Davis yelled, "I'm a CIA assassin! I'm a CIA assassin!", throughout the ordeal.

I'm not a CIA assassin! Tomorrow Harry Reid is going to start a committee in charge of checking to see if their toast is the right color. You will have to wait for an inspector to check your toast to make sure it's not burnt. There will be a $10.00 per loaf of bread surcharge. The Dems are touting this as a bill to "Protect All Americans / and Jobs Bill".

I like it 'lightly toasted,' which gives warmth and a bit of a crunch. That was, before I stopped eating I will be saving my $10.00.

With apologies to the late Jim Croce:

You don't tug on Superman's cape
You don't spit into the wind
You don't pull the mask off
the ol' Lone Ranger
and you don't mess around with Jim...

Yeah he was cut in 'bout
a hundred places and
he was shot in a couple more
And you better believe
they sung a different kind of story
when Big Jim hit the floor

(1) You shouldn't hustle people strange to you even if you have a two-piece custom made pool cue.

(2) You shouldn't get into fights with people who are likely to rip your head off and shove the dead skull where the sun doesn't shine.

I think your analysis on the victim's luck is correct.

Davis technically screwed up. The protocol would be a 911 call to the police by Davis complaining that he was getting his ass kicked - BEFORE he took the 'unnamed one' apart. I'm sure that Davis recalls his training NOW.
