Insulting your intelligence the Bush way
Bush wants an Intelligence Czar. He actually personally needs some intelligence, but that's a different story.
He wants to install a person to oversee the intelligence in the United States. He wants this person to be independent of the West Wing and oversee all intelligence gathering in the US. He wants the person to be free of undue influence.
Oh yeah, The pResident will have ultimate sanction to hire and fire this person.
Can anyone else see a small contradiction here? I mean, If Dubya hired you, could there be a small chance of subconscious influence
at play, and we all well know how troublesome that can be.
Also of interest is who will get the post. I'm giving great odds on Robin Cook
at the moment if anyone fancies a flutter! And yes, I do know the Robin Cook link is borked, wonder why!
