(Newser) – A former CIA station chief officials once described as a "rising star" in the organization has pleaded guilty to drugging and raping a Muslim woman in Algeria. Andrew Warren, 42, will be held in federal custody until he is sentenced, and could face up to a decade in jail, ABC News reports. The fluent Arabic speaker, who jumped to the career fast track after 9/11, also pleaded guilty to using illegal drugs while possessing a firearm, a charge filed after police tracked him down to a Virgina hotel room when he missed a court hearing.
