This could get delicious. Though the first report doesn’t mention all the blog talk about Goss’ links to poker and prostitute parties at the Watergate apartments in which Duke Cunningham and other Republican congressmen may have participated.
Late Update: Here at TPM HQ we were listening to the president’s announcement. And the talking heads on CNN were speculating whether Goss’s departure might be part of Josh Bolten’s ‘new blood’ shake up in the Bush administration. I don’t suppose it anything to do with the fact that Goss is neck deep in the Wilkes-Corruption-and-Hookers story that’s been burbling in the background all week. We don’t know definitely why Goss pulled the plug yet. But the CIA Director doesn’t march over to the White House and resign, effective immediately, unless something very big is up.
