President Bush has officially ordered Porter Goss to increase the number of the CIA's clandestine operators, AKA spies, by 50 percent. At the same time Bush has asked for the total amount of CIA research and development officers be doubled. Wow. Now, there're two stages of emotion I experienced upon reading this. 1) shock and awe -- oh dear god, George Bush is actually creating jobs?!?! And 2) the more practical -- where are we going to house all these spies? What will they do? What happened to "small government"? Will every American be assigned there own personal spy? Can I pick mine?
