Chris Shelton Arrested
Hahaha. I hate this guy on The Apprentice. He really needs to get fired. Once every show, he does the "NO SIR, I AM THE BEST AT SO AND SO". He's out of control.

"Fall Guy" Report Out on Spy Agencies
"Saying that the CIA's existing clandestine service is unlikely to overcome a history of poor performance,
the report recommends creating a new Human Intelligence Directorate within the CIA to build a better spy
service. It also urges major reshuffling of the FBI and the Justice Department." The intel community

the rug, and what was left fell on the intel community.
