Just Keeping Old Papers For His Memoirs?

The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania announced last Friday that Samuel Peter Karmilowicz, a retired State Department official, has been charged with possessing ten classified State Department cables without authorization (Former State Department Employee Charged with Security Breach).

Since his retirement in 2005, Mr. Karmilowicz has been something of a whistle-blower figure in some 9/11 conspiracy narratives (this one, for instance). Before his retirement, he was notable for having shot to death an Ecuadorian motorist in what could fairly be called a road rage incident while assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Quito, Ecuador, in 2002. The local authorities wished to charge him with murder, but the U.S. refused to waive Mr. Karmilowicz's diplomatic immunity (here's a press account of that incident, in Spanish).

Just wait until the guys at Dead Men Working find out that Karmilowicz was a DS Special Agent!
