Jon Stewart wants to know why the CIA is recruiting former Wall Street bankers.

According to Reuters, the CIA recently “held interviews on June 22 at a secret location in New York” after posting ads targeting laid off Wall Street workers.

“Economics, finance and business professionals, if the quest for the bottom line is just not enough for you, the Central Intelligence Agency has a mission like no other,” a radio ad announced about the openings. “Join CIA’s directorate of intelligence and be a part of our global mission as an economic or financial analyst. Make a difference in your career and for your nation.”

Stewart joked, “The CIA specializes in taking calm, stable countries and causing them to collapse, why would they want people who ran…”

“Brilliant,” Stewart applauded after a short pause.

he has a nice ability to think a bit deeper on things........this is often lost due to his "comedy" tag slapped on like a scarlet C....which has a connotation where people find it a challenge to see these people as being capable of high intelligent thought

but this was brilliant!

I would like to see Jon Stewart with his own news show that's not comedy based as well. He's a comedian first and a journalist second, but as we've seen with those roles reversed when he went after Jim Cramer it was worth more than any interview one of the lame ass kissing sessions that we usually recieve from the major network anchors.
