Poppy is Pissed

From Holden:

A comment by Tena on another thread lead me to this little fit of pique by the Lower Father.

“It burns me up, very candidly, to see the agency and other elements of the community under fire,” said Bush, a former CIA director himself, on Friday.


This week, current CIA Director Porter Goss said it’s not clear to him how he’ll work with the director of national intelligence nominee, John Negroponte, given ambiguities in the intelligence reform law passed in December.

The former President Bush seems to agree.

“If you figure out how the new setup is going to work … please let me know,” Bush told counterintelligence professionals gathered at a conference at the Bush School at Texas A&M University, directing his words at National Counterintelligence Executive Michelle Van Cleave.

He said it’s not clear how everyone will work together, including the new intelligence director, the CIA director and “a shy and retiring guy like Rumsfeld.”
