Top CIA official posts photo of man waving Palestinian flag on Facebook

A top CIA official posted a pro-Palestine image on Facebook two weeks after Hamas attacked Israel, the Financial Times reports.

The associate deputy director for analysis made an image of a man waving a Palestinian flag her Facebook cover photo on October 21, which the newspaper said comes amid reports of some dissent over the war between Israel and Hamas among members of the Biden administration.

The FT says it is not naming the official, after the CIA said there was concern for her safety.

“The officer is a career analyst with extensive background in all aspects of the Middle East and this post [of the Palestinian flag] was not intended to express a position on the conflict,” a person familiar with the situation tells the newspaper.

The individual adds that the senior official in question has in the past made public statements against antisemitism.
