Hitting the "reply all" button

Within a post titled CIA agent depicted in ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ not too popular , the text

The Post reports that the operative and several other agents were awarded the CIA's Distinguished Intelligence Medal, one of the agency's highest honors. However, after an email was sent to staff members announcing the award, the agent hit the reply-all button and expressed her feelings that only she was worthy of the award. A former CIA official quoted by the Post said her response could be summed up with: "You guys tried to obstruct me. You fought me. Only I deserve the award."

Of course, when you're hunting the world's most-wanted man, one would think you'd be forgiven for having a lack of manners. But the woman has apparently been denied a promotion that would have resulted in a significant raise (she was given a cash reward for her work, though). The former CIA official said he and others were stunned by the denied promotion, according to the Washington Post. "Do you know how many CIA officers are jerks?" he said. "If that was a disqualifier, the whole National Clandestine Service would be gone."
