Default Porter Goss claimed he is not qualified for CIA job

Filmmaker Moore Quotes Goss on Lack of CIA Credentials


By David Morgan / Reuters

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Congressman Porter Goss, President Bush's nominee for CIA director, could be his own worst enemy when it comes to making the case that he deserves to lead the U.S. intelligence agency.

"I couldn't get a job with CIA today. I am not qualified," the Florida Republican told documentary-maker Michael Moore's production company during the filming of the anti-Bush movie "Fahrenheit 9/11."

A day after Bush picked Goss for the top U.S. spy job, Moore on Wednesday released an excerpt from a March 3 interview in which the 65-year-old former House of Representatives intelligence chief recounts his lack of qualifications for employment as a modern CIA staffer.

"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," Goss is quoted in an interview transcript.

"And I certainly don't have the technical skills, uh, as my children remind me every day: 'Dad you got to get better on your computer.' Uh, so, the things that you need to have, I don't have."

Goss, who served with the CIA clandestine services in Latin America and Europe in the 1960s, was not immediately available for comment.

He appears in Moore's film, the most financially successful documentary in history, during a segment devoted to the USA Patriot Act, an anti-terrorism measure.

Moore told Reuters that Goss, who until Tuesday was chairman of the House of Representatives Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, granted an interview to two of his producers without first checking to see who they worked for.

"You'd think the person who was the head of the intelligence committee would ask a few more questions," said Moore.

"The reality is that Porter Goss was in charge of the oversight of the CIA during a time when the CIA didn't do its job, which in part resulted in the loss of lives of 3,000 people," he said via telephone from New York.

A White House spokesman declined to comment specifically on the Goss interview but described the lawmaker as "the most qualified man for the job."

Goss is expected to appear at confirmation hearings before the Senate intelligence committee next month.

^I think it is important he releases information like this. Personally, I don't want to see someone who isn't confident in his ability do the job as head of the CIA.

Well at least Moore does not come with racial slurs or he's not a dopey like Limbaugh. Anyways Like Moore's movies but I can't stand Moore himself.

I don't agree whole heartedly with everything Moore says at all however Moore is not the topic here. The only thing he did was release the quote.

The topic here is that our current president claims the following about Mr. Goss, "He knows the CIA inside and out" and "He's the right man to lead this important agency at this critical moment in our nation's history."

When Mr. Goss himself said the following,

It is true I was in CIA from approximately the late 50's to approximately the early 70's. And it's true I was a case officer, clandestine services office and yes I do understand the core mission of the business. I couldn't get a job with CIA today. I am not qualified. 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. And I certainly don't have the technical skills, uh, as my children remind me every day, "Dad you got to get better on your computer." Uh, so, the things that you need to have, I don't have.

That was from early March of THIS YEAR. I highly doubt he got himself caught up in EVERY aspect he mentioned that he is weak in over the past 5 months. I do agree with Mr. Bush that this is a critical moment in our nation's history however to me it is obvious that Mr. Goss is NOT the best decision at this time.
