Late today, by Washington standards, Porter goss resigned as head of the CIA. the suden announcement raises big question marks. Porter Goss, a critic of the agency, who was hand picked by george Bush to run the agency gave no reason for the resignation. No health reason, no "spending more time with the family" reason or anything else. His tenure was only about a year and a half.

Is it perhaps that this is about the agency's #3 man, Dusty Faggo's recent scandal involving lobbyist Jack Abramoff? Was this about the agent who was fired 10 days before retirement over a leak that led to a Pulitzer Prize for Dana Priest? A charge the agent flatly denies, by the way. Of course, this is all speculation, but the timing and suddenness of the resignation can only lead to speculation.

It's also curious that Bush stated the CIA wa sknown for it's '"secrecy and acountability." Really?

Regardless, the CIA is in need of a leader currently. I wonder if the administration will use this as an opportunity to "reach across the aisle?" Or will one of Coss's "goslings" as they were known at the agency (Goss's staffers who were his political cronies) pick up where Goss left off. It will be interesting to see.

hopefully the next director who knows where bin laden is (as goss claimed to do) will be able to do something about it.

isn't foggo also very closely associated with inmate (former congressman) 'duke' cunningham?
