Security Before Politics

by Porter Goss, Director of the CIA from September 2004 to May 2006 and Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence from 1997 to 2004.

"Since leaving my post as CIA director almost three years ago, I have remained largely silent on the public stage. I am speaking out now because I feel our government has crossed the red line between properly protecting our national security and trying to gain partisan political advantage."
