    Who thinks it a good idea to put a CIA annex at a US consulate?   The CIA has become very involved in the War on Terror and is a huge part of the controversial drone program.   By attaching a CIA post along with a diplomatic consulate, don't we make that consulate a military target?   Haven't we now made ALL US diplomatic missions suspect and thus subject to attack?  I realize this isn't a new policy on our part - I'm reminded of Beirut during the Reagan years - but I'm not sure it's very wise given these times we live in.
