Negroponte Paying Attention to CIA's Clandestine Service
http://ap.tbo.com/ap/breaking/MGBY2BMI19E.html

WASHINGTON (AP) - John Negroponte's early moves since taking over as the nation's intelligence director last month indicate he is focusing on one particular element of America's spy apparatus: the CIA's highly secretive clandestine service.


Negroponte has promoted two veterans of the service to be his deputies. He also has sent a classified memo to the heads of the agency's foreign outposts, requiring them to report directly to him on matters of importance to the country's 15 intelligence agencies.

Some intelligence veterans say Negroponte is signaling his plans to reach deep into the clandestine service and provide extra oversight to an organization whose mistakes make headlines and can cause diplomatic blowups.

To other observers, his moves are an acknowledgment of the service's stature among those agencies.
