The Scariest Memo in the World

From Porter Goss, new head of the CIA:

Porter J. Goss, the new intelligence chief, has told Central Intelligence Agency employees that their job is to "support the administration and its policies in our work,” a copy of an internal memorandum shows.

"As agency employees we do not identify with, support or champion opposition to the administration or its policies," Mr. Goss said in the memorandum, which was circulated late on Monday. He said in the document that he was seeking "to clarify beyond doubt the rules of the road."

In other words, don’t speak truth to power. Just shuddup and nod ‘yes’.

Seriously, in such an atmosphere, are we MORE or LESS likely to see intelligence agents acting like this?
