Loyalty before intelligence

Man, you just got to love this stuff! The crap just goes on and on, with the toadies and flunkies on the march. Chalmers Johnson is calling the new CIA "worthless" and how can you doubt it? This administration has just got to go down in the history books as the stinkiest ever and bar none. Stand aside, Andrew Jackson and General Grant, you have been surpassed.

"Two weeks after George Bush's re-election, Porter J. Goss, the newly appointed Director of Central Intelligence, wrote an internal memorandum to all employees of his agency telling them, "[Our job is to] support the administration and its policies in our work. As agency employees, we do not identify with, support, or champion opposition to the administration or its policies." Translated from bureaucrat-speak, this directive says, "You now work for the Republican Party. The intelligence you produce must first and foremost protect the President from being held accountable for the delusions he has concerning Iraq, Osama bin Laden, preventive war, torturing captives, democracy growing from the barrel of a gun, and the 'war on terror.'" - Chalmers Johnson
