Goss Stacks CIA w/Political Hacks
Porter Goss promises to lead the CIA in a non-partisan way, then he stacks the CIA with House GOP staff:
Porter J. Goss, the new director of central intelligence, has chosen four House Republican aides for senior positions at the Central Intelligence Agency, including the No. 3 job in the agency, former agency officials said Thursday.So much for having a CIA where any independence will be shown. We now have an intelligence agency staffed with yes men, who will subordinate Americans' safety to the political health of the Republican Party.
The decision to appoint the four officials is creating waves in the agency, which prides itself on objectivity and independence, the former officials said.
