CIA faces spy shortages as staffers go private

"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As CIA Director Porter Goss tries to rebuild the agency's global operations, he faces a shortage of experienced spies created by a post-September 11 stampede to the private sector, current and former intelligence officials say.

Goss, who a year ago inherited a CIA wracked by criticism of intelligence failures over Iraq and the September 11, 2001, attacks, has come under fire from critics about the publicized departures of several high-level clandestine officers.

Reform advocates see the loss of senior officials as a natural consequence of changes intended to root out an old guard blamed for lapses that prompted Congress to put the CIA under a new director of national intelligence, John Negroponte."
More bad news for the administration, and unfortunately for this country. But not to worry, we can just blame it all on Clinton and reduce the damage to the administration. You know the rest, screw the country.

I was surprised to learn Goss actually has an intelligence background. I suppose that automatically makes him one of the President's wiser appointees. Still, I suspect we won't be confusing him with William Colby anytime soon.

We all have to support the movement to BOYCOTT ARUBA.

It’s important to get the message to Aruban and Dutch legal authorities, that Americans love freedom, but we will not tolerate lawlessness.

Until boys who confessed to the rape and murder of Natalee Holloway are re-arrested and convicted, we all have to BOYCOTT ARUBA.
