Hilarious news today, General David Petraeus aka "ass-kissing little chickenshit" has been selected by Barak "no we can't" Obama to become the next director of the CIA.
This is a hyper-Obamaesque decision, indeed. Obama is, of course, the ultimate "ass-kissing little chickenshit" himself and its not at all surprising that he would appoint somebody of the same "stature", shall we say. Not only will the appointment of a a spineless sycophant bureaucrat like Petraeus send a powerful message to the CIA itself (stop analyzing facts - get with the program!) but it will also prepare the "heroic" figure of Petraeus for a future civilian job like, say, President of the USA!
Finally, the nomination of Petraeus also sends a clear message to all the folks currently working on the many intelligence estimates of the (imaginary) "secret nuclear weapons program": you better get the next one right or your career is over.
The US intelligence community has always been bloated, inept and highly politicized, in particular the CIA and there is a good reason to call the latter "The President's private army". The appointment of a "form over substance" mediocrity like Petraeus as DCI will only further subordinate the CIA to the political interests of the various lobbies which own and run the USA.
