From the CIA’s Office of General Counsel website, via the Weekly Standard’s scrapbook, comes this testimonial for working as a CIA lawyer:
There are many, many misconceptions people have about working for the CIA. Actually, people are surprised when they hear that the CIA has a General Counsel’s Office at all! . . . Another misconception is that the CIA is extraordinarily conservative. That’s totally not the case. I’d say that most people here would consider themselves very liberal. . . .
That’s totally awesome. It’s also why, as the Standard suggests, the leak of the CIA’s referral of the Plame matter to the Justice Department may well have come from the CIA’s lawyers.
