Goss: “I Couldn’t Get a Job with the CIA Today. I Am Not Qualified.”

August 12th, 2004

Matt Gunn has the details on how Rep. Goss, the controversial Bush candidate for heading the CIA, isn’t qualified–in Goss’ own words. The words were spoken in an interview made for Michael Moore’s Fahrenheit 9/11, but were cut from the final film. Granted, he’s talking about getting a job as an agent, but if a man is unqualified even to be an agent, can he be qualified to lead the entire organization?

Michael Moore has a clipping on the story, and promises video tomorrow.

    But wasn’t Goss in F9/11?

    Yes, Goss was in there, he was the guy telling us that there is a 1-800 toll-free number for people to call if they are concerned about the PATRIOT Act–and Moore put subtitles explaining that there is no such 800 number, but then gave the number for Goss’ own office for people who wanted to give him a ring. Goss was not amused as his office got hundreds of calls, and his people tried to explain it off as something he did not mean “literally.”

    The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists – two men and one woman. For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.

    “We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room you will find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her.” The first man said. “You cant be serious. I could never shoot my wife!”The agent replies, “Then you?re not the right man for this job.”

    The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the agent came out with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I cant kill my wife.” The agent replies, “You dont have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”

    Finally, it was the womans turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, “You guys didnt tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair.”
