Goss. Porter Goss.

After receiving his Electronic Ninja Spy Kit and his secret Blacklight Decoder Ring, Peter Goss is all about doing more spying.

Facing criticism both inside his agency and from Capitol Hill for a
lack of vision and leadership, CIA Director Porter J. Goss yesterday
outlined his plans for expanding CIA's spying and analytical operations
overseas while cutting back on the bureaucracy at headquarters.

"We are not in all of the places we should be... We are going to be in places people can't even imagine," Goss said.

He said he will expect and encourage calculated risk taking... Saying he
expected risky efforts to "go right," he added that he knows "it won't go
right all the time. And when it goes wrong, I will support you."

Goss also made clear that sending more people overseas will also mean
moving agency officers and analysts out of embassies and under cover,
no longer guaranteeing them diplomatic immunity if they are caught
spying. "We are definitely going to be using new cover arrangements
overseas, because we have to," he said.

After a James Bond marathon on TNT, Goss is so over the paper pushing and wants to have some fun.

    As an uncover agent no longer eligible for diplomatic immunity, I wonder when the fuck are they going to lock Karl Rove up so I can get a decent night's sleep? cover!

    I feel your pain. I'm afraid Karl is going to tell my boss that I blog from work sometimes and he'll get me fired. You know, once the trust it gone....

    I understand they are trying to get Valerie Plame to head up the operations so when she is outed this time, she is shot. Goons, all of them. Then there is the porn squad at the FBI - should be a great year coming up.
