Specifically, Shapira is finishing up a piece on Barbara A. Robbins, the first female CIA employee killed in action. She died when a car bomb exploded outside the US Embassy in Saigon in March 1965. Shapira is looking for one of her good friends, Grace Joyce, also an employee, perhaps a secretary, at the Agency. Any and all leads about Grace or Barbara are welcome. If you know anything about these two women, please contact OSINT News on the secure Bpath Mail Form and we will forward the information to Ian Shapira. Or, if you desire to contact him directly, here is his email and phone number at the Washington Post: email@example.com and phone number is 202-334-7572.
