Purging the disloyal

The White House has ordered the new CIA director, Porter Goss, to purge the agency of officers believed to have been disloyal to President George W. Bush or of leaking damaging information to the media about the conduct of the Iraq war and the hunt for Osama bin Laden, according to knowledgeable sources.

This is worse than it seems at first. “Disloyalty” here is the act of disagreeing. And since Bush and his cronies were wrong and/or lying about damn near everything in the run-up to the Iraq war, this means that everyone who actually did their job is in jeopardy of losing it. Which will leave only sycophants, incompetents, and those who’ve learned to play the game behind. And you can be pretty certain that Bush is gonna hear — and act on — whatever faith-based apocalyptic nonsense he wants in the next couple of years.
