Quote, January 2004

   [ed: Goodman is referring here to the lectures he gives to intelligence analysts at the State Department's Foreign Services Institute]“I get into the issue of politicization. They don't say much during the question period, but afterwards people come up to me, DIA and CIA analysts who have had this pressure. I've gotten stories from DIA people being called into a supervisor's office and told they might lose their job if they didn't revise a paper. ‘This is not what the administration is looking for. You've got to find WMD's, which are out there.’” [Vanity Fair, 5/2004, pg 242]
