they are dropping like flies at the cia


Recommended Posts

May 8, 2006 ? ABC has learned that Kyle "Dusty" Foggo, the hand-picked executive director of the CIA under Porter Goss, has resigned ? the same day as his boss's replacement was announced by the White House.


Foggo is at the center of a swirling storm of corruption allegations ? and there are suggestions that the scandal, which involves poker parties, sweetheart contracts and prostitutes ? could spread, further tainting the agency. His resignation may serve to tamp down some of the damage to the agency itself as an FBI criminal probe and a CIA inspector general's investigation continue.


Earlier today the White House announced that Gen. Michael Hayden had been picked to replace Goss, whose resignation came at the end of last week.


ABC's Christopher Isham reported today that a respected veteran CIA officer ? Stephen Kappes ? had already been asked to return to the agency as Hayden's right hand. Kappes had left the agency when Goss was appointed as its head. Insiders told ABC that the news of Kappes' expected return is likely to be a huge boost to morale.
