Is Poker the Downfall of the CIA?

Wednesday, 10 May 2006

Two of the top three men at the CIA have resigned in the past week, and it seems that poker might have something to do with it. Rumour has it that the third in command, Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, has resigned over his role in a ‘sex for favours’ scandal.

Two of the top three men at the CIA have resigned in the past week, and it seems that poker might have something to do with it. Rumour has it that the third in command, Kyle “Dusty” Foggo, has resigned over his role in a ‘sex for favours’ scandal. With CIA director Porter Goss going too, stories are circulating that both men leaving their posts has something to do with an FBI investigation into ‘poker and sex’ parties that were thrown by defence contractors for congressmen.
Foggo is said to have been involved in these poker parties, according to intelligence sources, as well as enjoying the company of prostitutes (presumably when he lost a game). Goss apparently hired Foggo in order to attend the parties and take part.
Whilst it all seems a little bizarre and shady (what doesn’t with intelligence agencies), it’s pleasing to see that poker is playing its role at the top levels of government.
