CIA Director Porter Goss Resigns
Several news organizations aired the news that CIA director, Porter Goss resigned on May 5, 2006. He had only been director of the CIA for less than a year and a half. Apparently Goss did get along with career CIA employees and did not like to travel oversees. The CIA head is not as of a powerful position as it once now that the agency is under the director of national intelligence, John D. Negroponte whose position was created in the overhaul of U.S. intelligence agencies. Goss had replaced George J. Tenet as director. Air Force Gen. Michael Hayden, top deputy to National Intelligence Director John Negroponte, is the leading candidate to replace Goss.
Note: The CIA director briefs the President daily. Goss complained that it took him five hours to prepare for the briefings. Many feel that the CIA chief is the government focal point who briefs the President on UFOs.
