#6 Remember the mantra of DRT being an "agent of the Russian gov't?"

If it comes to it (and I doubt it will) they'll be siting Para 3.5 of EO 12333. Wait and see.

Until the powerless, notional position of Director of National Intelligence (DNI) was established, the Director of the CIA was 'THE' Director of Intelligence for the nation. Anyone hear from the notional DNI lately ?
