Ray McGovern, former CIA on Tenet resignation:<br><br>
"I am more frightened now than at any time over the last three and a half years, that this administration will resort to extra-legal methods to do something to ensure that there are four more years for George Bush. And Ashcroft’s statement last week, gratuitous statement, uncoordinated with the department of, CIA, with the Department of Homeland Security, his warning that there is bound to be a terrorist strike before the US elections."<br><br><br>
Long interview, but worthy of your time, no matter your politics:<br><br><a href="http://www.democracynow.org/article.pl?sid=04/06/03/1626202" target="_blank">http://www.democracynow.org/article..../06/03/1626202</a><br><br>

I figured eventually a fall guy would come out and resign. No way it's Bush's fault <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nono.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nono"> I hope and pray every night that shrub doesn't cheat again and we don't have to deal with him anymore but I'm not sure my prayers are enough. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

This may be just the beginning. Hard to say.<br><br>
James L. Pavitt, the clandestine services chief of the CIA, announced his retirement Friday. NYTimes said "Mr. Pavitt, a veteran spy who served in Vienna and Germany, among other posts, has been the tactical commander of the clandestine war, overseeing an operation in which intelligence officers have worked closely with military Special Operations Forces. The joint effort contributed significantly to the quick victory in Afghanistan in 2001, the capture of Saddam Hussein last year and the capture or killing of about two-thirds of those known to be top operatives of Al Qaeda at the time of the Sept. 11 attacks."<br><br>
With both gone, all I can say is, yikes.
