The book should be very interesting. I believe it will confirm that the CIA has been operating against the President as a political entity rather than providing intelligence assesments necessary to defend our country.
Spook Daddy had to have warned young George about this. President Bush has no excuse for not having cleaned house at Langley the moment he took over. After eight years of making peace quilts for Bubba, the place had to be a total cesspool.

If that great ‘merican V. Plame is any indication, the CIA should be disbanded and we should start over with new folks and proceedures.

Yup. I see the CIA opening the books on the "family jewels" again, despite the fact that these same secrets were made public to the Rockefeller Commission and the Church Commission decades ago.
What do you make of an agency that shoots itself in the same foot over and over ?
I'm not sure. The CIA has become more of a political machine since 1992 than it ever has been. It's not interagency rivalries and disagreements and personal disagreements anymore. The CIA stepped WAY over the line by putting out bad intelligence, ignoring good intelligence and stepping openly into the political arena to leak to the public our most important national secrets, all in an attempt to make their boss look bad.

Porter Goss was sent to clean up the CIA. I'll be interested to see if he gets mentioned in Scarboroughs book in the mean time interesting Goss stuff here

Goss represented the 14th congressional district of Florida, which includes Lee County, Fort Myers, Naples, and part of Port Charlotte. He served for a time as the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. Goss was a cosponsor of the USA PATRIOT Act and was a co-chair of the Joint 9/11 Intelligence Inquiry.
