He's told so many lies, it's hard to keep up with them. I've seen Gary Shroen interviewed, but haven't read the book. All I can say is, I'm glad Porter Goss was sent over to head the CIA.

Supposedly the reason (other than logistics, of course) that the CIA and the State Department don't change personnel whenever there is a change in Presidential Administrations is because they are supposed to be "non-partisan" and work for the country, not the Administration in power at the time....
I don't think that is possible anymore, the way that Washington works..but, what option, completely cleaning house whenever there is a change, especially when the party in charge changes?
Part of the reason or Intelligence, especially the humint, is so "bad", is because not enough have been able to infiltrate the world of the Islamofascists, which would take YEARS, so it is totally impractical to start over...
BUT, if you have people in the CIA that are out to "get" the POTUS because of his party or policies, they have a LOT of power to screw up life for all of us!
