This just in...

The AP is reporting this morning that:

"President Bush instructed the nation's new spy chief to focus on finding more recruits with the language skills and cultural background to collect information on al-Qaida and other terrorist groups."

Gee, nothing gets by this guy! It's only taken five years for him to figure out that this might be a useful step to take. Capable linguists in the single digits among the staffers in Iran, no reliable translators in the field in Iraq or Afghanistan...hey, he really might be onto something here! Maybe we should really think about this, training more people with language skills!!"

Now why didn't WE come up with this?! We've really been asleep at the wheel vis-a-vis the man in the White House.
