CIA Director Porter Goss Resigns

Another CIA director hands himself his own pink slip. If the CIA is the center of intelligence and the director is head of the center, one could determine that the smart move is not to work there.

CIA Director Porter Goss resigned unexpectedly Friday, nudged from the helm of a spy agency still reeling from intelligence failures before America's worst terrorist attack and faulty information that formed the U.S. rationale for invading Iraq.

When I was young I always thought of the CIA as some sort of super-secret agency that was full of the nations most unfailably successful spies, the stuff of movies where they save the world time and time again. Now I see it more like the Starbucks down the road.

The decision was the latest in a series of moves by President Bush to shake up his team and reinvigorate his second term.

The only way he's going to reinvigorate his second term is to actually accomplish something, anything. I'll be happy if he can prove he solved the Sunday Word Jumble.
