… which is why Bush picked him ….. You won’t see this story in the GOP controlled press.
US Congressman Porter Goss, nominated to be the new director of the CIA, may be talking himself out of the job, according to film-maker Michael Moore.
Moore, who directed the film Fahrenheit 9/11, has released an interview with Mr Goss in which he says he lacks the qualifications for the top spy post.
“I couldn’t get a job with CIA today. I am not qualified,” Mr Goss told Moore’s production company in March.
The White House has dismissed the interview as “ridiculous hearsay”.
The interview did not make it into the final edit of the film, which criticises President George W Bush’s policy on Iraq.
But following Mr Goss’s nomination by the president, Moore has released the transcript and video excerpt on his website.
“I don’t have the language skills. I, you know, my language skills were romance languages and stuff. We’re looking for Arabists today. I don’t have the cultural background probably,” Mr Goss says on the video.
“And I certainly don’t have the technical skills, as my children remind me every day: ‘Dad, you got to get better on your computer.’
“So, the things that you need to have, I don’t have.”
Michael Moore has this Video of Porter Goss admitting he is unqualified – but you won’t see this on the GOP owned network news.
Did you ever wonder why you aren’t seeing this on the network news? Don’t you think it’s news when the person who was just appointed to head the CIA has admitted that he isn’t even qualified to work for the CIA?
