More on Goss

Partisan Hack:
"Rep. Porter Goss said Thursday that the uproar over allegations that White House officials purposely identified a covert CIA agent...doesn't yet merit an investigation by the House Select Committee on Intelligence, which he chairs...'Somebody sends me a blue dress and some DNA, I'll have an investigation.'"
How cool is that? Hope you didn't leave any protien stains over at Foggo's place, you simpering turd. Here's a Slate article from 2004 regarding Goss's ham-fisted reorg at the CIA -- gear in mind, as you read this, that things only got worse in 2005. From PG's Wikipedia page:
On the morning of September 11, Goss, Graham, Kyl and members of the House Intelligence Committee were having breakfast with General Mahmoud Ahmad, who had earlier organised the transfer of US$100,000 via Saeed Sheikh to the lead 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta, in a top-secret conference room on the fourth floor of the U.S. Capitol. After discussing the opium poppy problem, they were talking about Afghanistan-spawned terrorism with Ahmad when a member of Goss's staff handed a note about the attacks to Goss, who handed it to Graham. Ahmad had arrived in Washington on September 4 and had met with George Tenet and other administration officials.[7] Goss fully defended the CIA and the Bush administration. With the White House and Sen. Graham, his counterpart in the Senate Intelligence Committee, Goss rebuffed calls for an inquiry in the weeks immediately following September 11.
A quick but nice rundown of other recent CIA dick-tripping -- like firing whisteblowers who for some reason objected to secret CIA-run prisons in Europe. First Draft has lots more. What an outstanding public servant.
