The CIA bureaucrats are more deeply entrenched than the North Korean nuclear program. They're dug in, and will resist reform and change until that bright, epiphinal day when someone in Washington grows a set of testicles and fires them.

We've got plenty of talent out there that could be used to replace the career paperpushers (who's careers are a delicate balance of incompetence, political correctness, and egotism). It's just that we timidly refuse to clean house, and they are adamantly opposed to changing how they do business.

Everyone saw this coming, too. We need the current CIA leadership about as much as an ambulance driver needs an angry cobra in the passenger seat. The upper tiers of the agency are going to fight the President's agenda to their dying breath. It's long past time to shut down the CIA and recreate the OSS or a similar agency. One that is both competent to do their jobs, and inclined to.

Agreed about the bureaucrats, But it DOES take time to train, emplace, and properly cover clandestine service officers. . .
