Just call him..."Jose"

I'm not seeing this reported too broadly in U.S. media, but it seems the CIA has announced the creation of a brand spankin' new intelligence agency to supervise CIA espionage operations and co-ordinate all U.S. overseas spying activities, including those of the FBI and the Pentagon. Who's heading up this new National Clandestine Service (NCS)? As No. 2 used to tell Patrick McGoohan every week on the old Prisoner TV series, "That would be telling." Apparently, the NCS chief's identity is available only on a "need to know" basis. He (or she) is an "undercover officer" and will be simply called "Jose," according to a BBC report. Jose will report directly to Porter Goss, the current head of the CIA.

Who says agents of the U.S. government aren't accountable to the American people, whom they allegedly serve?
