NGA Staffer Who Enabled Bin Laden Capture Receives Bonus

A staffer from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) was fetted with monetary bonuses for his work on the imagery analysis that led to the capture of Osama Bin Laden. Per Senior Executives Association spokeswoman Carol Bonosaro, who speaks on behalf of senior government officials:

That [work] enabled us to pinpoint, find, and conduct the raid on Osama bin Laden, which is rather amazing. I think it's unfortunate that the American people don't know what they do.

The staffer received a bonus equivalent to one-third of his normal annual salary and the Presidential Rank Award, a one-time bonus for federal employees of up to $63,000.
