What a mess the Republicans are making of everything. If at a critical time, Bush couldn't even choose a competent person to run the CIA, no wonder 9/11 happened on his watch. Bush doesn't know what he's doing. http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2006/05/05/politics/main1592486.shtml The White House planned to quickly nominate a new CIA director to replace outgoing Porter Goss, who offered little explanation in announcing his resignation from the embattled agency. ... While President Bush says the decision for Goss to leave was mutual, CBS News chief White House correspondent Jim Axelrod reports that U.S. officials familiar with the CIA say Goss was forced out. Inside CIA headquarters, sources say, they couldn't be happier, reports Axelrod. Goss, a former CIA operative brought in 18 months ago to reform the agency, was disliked intensely. The former congressman was also supposed to smooth over relations between the White House and the CIA, strained in the run-up to the war in Iraq.
