CIA officers marks death of spy with rare request

In this May 23, 2002, file photo Director of the Central Intelligence Agency George Tenet reaches out to touch a five-pointed star freshly carved into the marble-faced lobby wall of CIA headquarters in Langley, Va. The star, the 79th, honors CIA officer Johnny "Mike" Spann, killed during a November 2001 prison uprising in Afghanistan by al-Qaida members. Since then a total of 23 stars have been added to the wall, and in a rare break of the silence that surrounds the families of the clandestine community, the CIA Officers Memorial Foundation notes about 56 children of those killed in the line of duty will need educational support.
