Regular commenter Gumshoe1 pointed out an article in the Atlanta Constitution. Zell Miller has noted that there may be Factions In The CIA!!! that believe themselves to be policy makers rathers than employees of the federal government and that employees belonging to said factions might(?) be using a loophole in the rules to promote an agenda at odds with administration policy.
I believe that Zell is correct in his observations regarding rank nepotist SuperSecret Agent 34B - Val Plame - and the idiot that she married and hired as a "consultant" but I'm unsure as to the wisdom of his solution.
What are the potential "negative externalities" of such a proposed rule?
