As Lt. General Michael Hayden continues to undergo scrutiny after his nomination for CIA Director by President Bush, the residue from the departure of
Porter Goss continues to unfold. Federal Agents reported to the home and office of former CIA Executive Director Kyle "Dusty" Foggo Friday. At Mr.
Foggo's home and place of work, agents from five different agencies began to retrieve evidence as part of an investigation on corruption and CIA
contracts. The former CIA appointee was reportedly not found at either location.
WASHINGTON - Federal agents searched the home and office of the
CIA's departing No. 3 official on Friday as part of a corruption investigation that has sent a former congressman to prison and now involves CIA
contracts. Investigators from five federal agencies acted under search warrants at the home of Kyle "Dusty" Foggo in Vienna, Va., and his office at
the CIA's Langley, Va., campus, FBI spokeswoman Debra Weierman said. Both locations are in the Washington suburbs.
The warrants themselves were sealed and officials would not discuss what agents were seeking.
Foggo agreed to step down as the CIA's executive officer under pressure because federal authorities are investigating whether he improperly awarded
contracts to San Diego businessman and friend Brent Wilkes, according to federal law enforcement and intelligence officials. They spoke on condition
of anonymity because investigations were ongoing.

It was only a matter of time before Mr. Foggo would have to answer for his involvement in "Hookergate" and other CIA scandals. Although, the timing
is impeccable, even for the Bush Administration. Is Mr. Foggo a "fall guy" in this move to replace Mr. Goss with Lt. Gen. Hayden?
So many questions need to be asked, but probably will remain unanswered.
