Refocusing the CIA

The CIA and the Nazi War Crimes and Japanese Imperial Government Records Interagency Working Group are fighting an epic turf battle. Some people found this sort of thing amusing before 9/11. But for American citizens today, the CIA's refusal to play well with other kids in the intelligence pre-school is a national problem that threatens everyone.

Porter Goss has promised us a new, mission-focused CIA. He made a good start by forcing out CIA employees who were perceived to be trying to thwart the will of the President. As a former congressman, he should take the lead in preventing his agency from obstructing the will of Congress in this matter.
