I have to say that I don't know how productive it has been for just about everyone higher than field agent level to be fired from the CIA. Nor am I sure how beneficial the Pentagon's, and by inclusion Donald Rumsfeld's, campaigning to stop intelligence reform has been. Seems pretty sad that something the majority of congress and the President wanted couldn't get through because the speaker decided not to hold a floor vote. But I guess that's politics - well the latter anyway. The CIA really should not be in any way political.

I guess I must be a bleeding heart liberal then or something. ;)
Does she think that they should be political?

I mean, it's one thing to carry out the policies of the current government. It's another to be political in your own right. That's all I'm saying.
