A mission critical post at the CIA is open

Thomas Lifson
Now that Valerie Plame has left the CIA and wants to publish a book over the Agency's objections, the CIA is recruiting for another "mission critical" post and warns applicants to keep it hush-hush. Gabriel Schoenfeld of Commentary spotted this important position being advertised.

If Patrick Fitzgerald ever gets ahold of this news, who knows what crimes he can conjure up? Members of the White House inner circle are cautioned to be very discreet about their forthcoming oil changes.
