Ex-CIA Director "Porter Goss lost the job he never should have had in the first place," writes Maureen Dowd in a column in Saturday's New York Times.
Excerpts from Dowd column entitled "Pokers, hookers and spooks":
So much news was popping out all over Washington on Friday, it was hard to decide which way to look.
I felt I had no choice but to go with Dusty Foggo, Top Spook.
Dusty turns out to be a friend of a defense contractor implicated in the federal corruption investigation of the imprisoned Randy "Duke" Cunningham, a former GOP congressman. The contractor, Brent Wilkes, is now entangled in allegations of louche and lewd behavior involving limos, hookers, a poker player with a missing digit from the CIA nicknamed "Nine Fingers," and Watergate hospitality suites where more was offered than just Scotch and pretzels.
...After John Negroponte gave Goss the ax, W. went biking in Beltsville, Md.
When spooks get spiked, W. spins the spokes.
