So horrifically sad, it's actually funny.

"CIA plans to purge its agency". "
Sources say White House has ordered new chief to eliminate officers who were disloyal to Bush"

And did anyone not see this coming?

"WASHINGTON -- The White House has ordered the new CIA director, Porter Goss, to purge the agency of officers believed to have been disloyal to President George W. Bush or of leaking damaging information to the media about the conduct of the Iraq war and the hunt for Osama bin Laden, according to knowledgeable sources."

Yes, when you're in a life-and-death, good-versus-evil, end-times, apocalyptic battle against the unspeakable evil and terror that is fundamentalism Islam, there's nothing that beats ... summarily dismissing numerous experienced intelligence experts and analysts who might actually be, you know, useful in some way.

ADDENDUM: Oh, yeah, this is going to work out really well.
