I doubt if anyone is shedding any tears over the resignation today of Porter Goss as CIA director. President Bush described Goss’ term as a transition. That’s true. But Goss was more than just a placeholder at an agency hurt by intelligence failures and a torture scandal in Iraq. Goss also replaced some top CIA experts with GOP politicos. And most recently, he has been trying to track down the person who leaked to the media the existence of secret prisons (but hasn’t seemed very upset about the administration leaking the name of one of the CIA’s undercover agents).
