"Spooks" is a common term for spies - so the CNN headline was likely referring to the turmoil within the CIA.

Take a valuium.

No this was definitely NOT in reference to the CIA and the word spook refering to spies. He was talking about Powell and Rice.

If this is true, people will definitely be fired for it. It IS sort of hard to believe they'd let something this bad slip by.

That's my guess.

The MSM seem to make a *lot* of these harmless little mistakes with black Republicans.

It is also a term used for blacks. If FNC or any conservative called any two black liberals spooks, the MSM would go into complete hysteria. It was inappropriate and disrespectful for CNN to do this. IMHO they were intentionally disrespectful.
