Reader comment on item: The FBI Loses Its Way [with Marwan Kreidie]

Submitted by Donald Oranj (United States), Jul 13, 2004 at 21:01

As many of you are aware - government employees are held to a much, much lower standard of quality [if any] than the average business in this country. Government work is usually a last stop to a job for anyone with ambition and this is uncovered regularly by Daniel Pipes in these articles on the FBI/CIA etc. I don't know what the solution is, because these agencies that need to have the intelligence and authority to make tough decisions are not the best or most qualified people working in those jobs - as might have been the case in the good ol days of the 'cold war' 30+ years ago. Keep up the good fight.
