Goss Resignation is a frightening sign
Porter Goss was brought into the CIA to try to reform the organization. Mr. Goss was expected to bring about badly needed changes in the U.S. spy organization that is increasingly at the center of so many controversies. However, Goss never had a chance.
Rarely reported by the very biased media, much of the CIA and the U.S. Justice Department was "cleared out" during the Clinton Administration. Many of the key legal organizations responsible for America's security and stability were then staffed by Hillary Clinton handpicked staffers. Some of them hired from the outside, some promoted from within. (Hillary and her Secret War - How the Clintons have forever corrupted the Whitehouse)
The Whitehouse announcement of Mr. Goss's resignation, a man known as a reformer, is more of an indication of the inside resistance to making the CIA actually accountable to America.
In the last 2 years, the only information leaked to the media is consistently anti-Bush, and anti-Republican. The biased media, the Democratic Party, and the CIA almost appear to be coordinating their own special, covert operation to attack Bush, the Republican Party, and America. The CIA is so clearly an extension of the Democratic Party, and is so fully engaged in overt acts of Treason that it is time for a Justice Department investigation and some LONG prison sentences.
Over the past several months, as much of official Washington looked on wide-eyed and agog, many in the CIA bureaucracy have waged an unabashed effort to undermine the current administration.
At the height of the campaign, CIA officials, who are supposed to serve the president and stay out of politics and policy, served up leak after leak to discredit the president's Iraq policy. There were leaks of prewar intelligence estimates, leaks of interagency memos. In mid-September, somebody leaked a CIA report predicting a gloomy or apocalyptic future for the region.
White House officials concluded that they could no longer share important arguments and information with intelligence officials. They had to parse every syllable in internal e-mail. One White House official says it felt as if the CIA had turned over its internal wastebaskets and fed every shred of paper to the press.
The White House-CIA relationship became dysfunctional, and while the blame was certainly not all on one side, Langley was engaged in slow-motion, brazen insubordination, which violated all standards of honorable public service. It was also incredibly stupid, since CIA officials were betting their agency on a Kerry victory.
At the height of the campaign, the CIA permitted an analyst - who, we now know, is Michael Scheuer - to publish anonymously a book called "Imperial Hubris," which attacked Bush policy. Here was an official on the president's payroll publicly campaigning against his boss. As Scheuer told The Washington Post this week, "As long as the book was being used to bash the president, they - the CIA honchos - gave me carte blanche to talk to the media." (Bush must clamp down on CIA officials who subvert his policies)
Sadly however, there will never be a Justice Department investigation into the Democrat / Clinton Corruption of the Central Intelligence Agency. The Justice Department is filled with Clinton chosen Lawyers as well. So we have Treason in the media, Treason in the CIA, and Treason in the Democratic Party.
Is it any wonder that Porter Goss is resigning? My only surprise is that he lasted as long as he did.
Thank you Porter for your service to this country, and I am sincerely saddened that those such as you, who wish to protect this country, are routinely run out by politicos who have now infested every level and layer of our country. It is a sad day indeed.
This tells me that the leftists like Risen, Mary McCarthy and this former CIA McGovern character are really running the show.
Bush is looking very compromised!
I think the real lesson of the Bush administration is that you can not leave any "left over" bureacrats.
ALL clintonistas should have been terminated immediatly.
Mineta of the transportation administration should never have been allowed to stay. He held up armed pilots.
I have another theory. If the CIA is actually going to go after and prosecute the seditionists and traitors inside the agency, is Porter Goss the best man from a public relations standpoint to carry out the purge. I don't think so. Porter Goss is identified as a GOP politician and a less overtly political appointee would better serve the President to insulate him and the GOP from attacks from the left and the media.
The departure of Porter Goss may be a good sign. It may mean that this administration is serious about restoring the CIA to it's former reliability.
Mark. Major Mark.
Tenet shoud have been fired on 9-12-2001. Goss should have been appointed the same day, and confirmed quickly. W is too nice most of the time.
I'm with you, brother. We need people who are committed to keeping the place safe and secure, not clymers worried whose butt to kiss of a person who's kissing a butt above his.
Who would you suggest?
Thus far, I have no idea.
I agree with you one hundred percent.
A fine strategy for mainaining the status quo, but a terrible one for fixing the problems at the CIA. This administration has an obsession with the idea of 'surgical, bloodless' conflict, either in war or in government. There are entrenched and systemic problems at the CIA that won't be fixed without some kind of a purge.
They should bring Newt Gingrich in as the "hatchet man"
That guy's good enough he could use every firing for political advantage to take more Congressional seats...
Perhaps it will give Goss an opportunity to go public with what he found there. Name and all.
Insight on the News: Hey, Orkin Man! - political appointees becoming part of the bureaucracy
Between October 1998 and June of this year, 57 people appointed to their high positions by the White House, usually because of their ideological affinity with the president, underwent sudden, seemingly miraculous, transformations into professional civil servants, according to a General Accounting Office (GAO) study. Although not unknown during other administration changeovers, the practice of burrowing-in is being watched closely by some on Capitol Hill who worry not only about whether its unfair to career civil servants and violates merit-system protections but whether the lingering presence of such moles might not leave an indelible ideological stamp on the supposedly nonpartisan machinery of government.
Thats the problem.
They either have something really good on the Bush family or the Bush family just doesn't understand how to advance an agenda.
Leaving the CIA under a Klinton appointee after winning in 2000 is pretty much incomprehensible.
We are fighting an enemy abroad and an enemy within , that being the apparatchik Democrat appointees at CIA, State, and Justice/FBI.
That W to this very day is not doing something about this is astounding and extremely suspicious.
I agree. Send him your resume! Quickly!
GHW Bush was director 30 years ago, and even at that was only director for less than two years. I doubt anyone he knew at the CIA is still employed there.
OK, I'm having a critique Bush moment. I am guessing that Goss was encouraged to leave because Bush sometimes errs a bit to far in the direction of Dale Carnegie. Goss is not a Dale Caregie type of guy. Too bad he's leaving. The CIA does not need Dale Carnegie types right now. It needs Gen. Patton types.
It is not a "huge" blow (for starters). And you have no idea what in the hell you are talking about!
Mr. Goss is a good man. He did well while Dir. Without a doubt.
But way too many on here are reaching way too far about facts and situations they know absolutely nothing about.
"Speculating" is fine....silly posts like yours above are just foolishness wrap in a ridiculous amount of self admiration about a situation in which you don't know 90% of the facts / details.
