Since the resignation of CIA director George Tenet in July, apointee Poter Goss has lost some of his top men. Many of the resignations have been
blamed on the "Shaking up" of the CIA by the new director. The two latest, whom have not been named due to the nature of their work, have been quoted
by the New York Times as being "very senior guys" who were leaving because they were "uncomfortable" with the management team brought in by the new
CIA director, Porter Goss.
Two more of America's top spies were reported yesterday to be leaving the CIA, as an attempt to fix the troubled agency appeared increasingly to be
dividing its ranks and driving out its most experienced officials.
The latest departures were undercover operatives, and so were not named in yesterday's press reports, which described them as "barons" in the top
level of the CIA's clandestine service - officially called the directorate of operations - in charge of its European and Far East divisions.
There have been other high level resignations since Mr Goss was appointed by President Bush in September. The head of the directorate of operations
Stephen Kappes and his deputy Michael Sulick both resigned last week, after the departure of the CIA deputy director, John McLaughlin.

This "Shake up" is starting to leave a not so good feeling in my gut. While there have been problems with sharing information between Federal
Agencies, I do not believe starting "New" is a good option. Mainly because "Catching people up to date" takes some time and thus gives the Likes of
Al-Qaeda more time to operate. Information that is received, whether it be from the field, chatter, tips, or just outright espionage already is backed
up as far as analyzing is concerned.
The enemy, as far as Terrorists goes, is already too many steps ahead of us. They have moved on to the likes of
, which is Equidistant Letter Sequences, which has claimed notarity in the "Bible
Code". For arguements sake, I am just reffering to the base of ELS, not this having anything to do with the Bible. Instead of having a "code" in one
text, they spread it out through hundreds of websites. Since it is too easy to be able to find any plans in one text, such as a date, place, method
etc.., they use numerous webpages which must be joined to get any data together. In the instance of setting up a meeting, they would have a name on
one site, a date on another, a time on another, a place on another, a room number on another, and so on. This is hard enough as it is, to be able to
monitor Millions of websites by a Well Together Company, and with the CIA seeming to be in disarray, it makes it even harder.
I really do not know what to make of these resignations. I do not know if they have been asked "Nicely" to leave, or that they really are leaving own
their own accord. I just know that I am not liking it very much from MY safety point of view.
