Archer is the post-war director of the CIA, and tells the narrator that the administration that was in charge during the early days of the outbreak used the CIA to further their politics but didn’t want to hear about anything that might weaken their position in the public eye. The CIA became a weak and ineffective organization under them. When Archer tried to bring up the issue of the zombies with his boss, he was transferred to Buenos Aires as a punishment. Archer’s account shows that the administration behaved irresponsibly, which worsened the zombie crisis in the nation.
