    If he were the director of INTELLIGENCE, and he quit, how would anyone know?

      Because it's Director of Intelligence, not Director of Invisibility?

      IMBECILE's reply is certainly in keeping with his name...Perhaps he should have a "middle" name...that would be NOSENSEOFHUMOR.

      Exactly! Where's the MSM research on this? Oh, that's right. No "press interviews," just propaganda. Say goodbye to America (formerly land of the free).

      Actually...we are all equal opportunity "stupids"....just nobody directing it anymore.
      You can direct all the intelligence you want, but if there is nobody smarat enough
      to use it...what the hell good is it?? Now if they make him director of ice cream,
      maybe he'd accomplish something.

    Please CNN I am about to stop watching your news because you need to cover the immigration issue more fervently and honestly. Our countries entire values system and the safety of Americans is at serious risk here. I have loved CNN for years but you are not giving this due dilligence. I will be converting to FOX and encouraging others to do so unless you put some major attention here.

      Yes, FOX is best. And BECK is the last honest researcher...are you watching his program now and how he's connecting the dots between Obama, Crime Inc and ShoreBank?

      The only way to know what's REALLY going on is to watch Glenn Beck's program every day.
