What’s that due process stuff, again?

I just wanted to comment briefly on this story by ABC about currently ongoing accusations on the CIA Algerian station chief, who was recently accused of a heinous crime of rape.

Disclaimer: I don’t know all the facts of this case. (Who does?)

If the following are true, then there doesn’t appear to be any good reason to fire this person.

1. No formal charges are currently filed.
2. No crime has been shown in a court of law to have been committed.
3. As it currently stands, it is just an accusation.
4. Due process still exists and matters.

If any of these four things are incorrect, then fire, tar, feather, and jail him. Otherwise, there doesn’t appear to be any good reason to do so.
