WASHINGTON — Stephen R. Kappes, the veteran clandestine officer who
came out of retirement in 2006 to lift morale in the Central Intelligence
Agency’s troubled ranks, is stepping down as deputy director, the agency announced on Wednesday.
Stephen R. Kappes has been credited by Democrats with soothing agency
Mr. Kappes, a stern former Marine who over his career served undercover in
Moscow, Islamabad, Pakistan, and, in the 1980s, at a secret C.I.A. station in
Germany collecting information about Iran, was the first officer from the
clandestine service to become the agency’s second-ranking official since
the early 1980s.

Turmoil within the CIA - naw 911 had nothing to do with that.
well 911 traces back to them the FBI - NYC - and a whole host
of other suspects. I can see how a little thing like whacking 3200
people could cause as they say turmoil.

Quote from : Wikipedia : Project for the New American Century
The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was an American think tank based in Washington, D.C. that lasted from early 1997 to 2006.
It was co-founded as a non-profit educational organization by neoconservatives William Kristol and Robert Kagan.
The PNAC's stated goal was "to promote American global leadership."
Fundamental to the PNAC were the view that "American leadership is both good for America and good for the world" and support for "a Reaganite policy of military strength and moral clarity."
The PNAC exerted influence on high-level U.S. government officials in the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush and affected the Bush Administration's development of military and foreign policies, especially involving national security and the Iraq War.
