10. Two ways to look at
Negroponte rushing in but both reach the same conclusion. He and his circle will decide the next reorganization of the Intel community. He would have been brought in anyway to help clean up this mess in his official role so it might not be a planned beheading. Goss has only shown himself a liability in the scandal suggestions. There was no need to replace him from the CIA's already emasculated national role. What gets an official to resign or be replaced? Chertoff is still around. Scapegoats get tossed to the wolves occasionally. Moderate non-cronies drop like leaves.

Probably a big scandal of the type to disgust Bush's "solid base" of sex-based moralists. All policy is politics chez Bush.
