Porter Goss, the man who by his own admission is not qualified to work at the CIA but now heads it, appears intent on destroying it. The NY Times today reports on a CIA memo in which Goss told CIA employees that their job is to "support the administration and its policies in our work." Now this sounds scary--you might think that the CIA's job had something to do with protecting the country. But it doesn't, and never has. Several top officials at the CIA have resigned recently, and more are likely to follow. Goss may very well be destroying the CIA. And, as Chalmers Johnson said recently, the CIA needs to be destroyed for the good of the country and especially the world.

So go ahead. Goss away. Destroy the CIA. In the end, everybody will be better off.
