69. Maybe you do not really know how a CIA Director is hired

I thought about your question, because I wondered: perhaps the CIA does
not even require a college degree for its directors. And based on what I recently read,
it appears to me they do not. Here is what I read:

How to become director of the CIA

The position of Director CIA is one of the many appointments made by the President of the United States (the Executive Branch) and requires the approval of the Senate (the Legislative Branch).

Qualifications vary from President to President. Directors of the CIA have included career politicians, active duty military officers, and from within the ranks of the CIA.

Maybe GH Bush "forgot" to mention Yale on his resume. I notice I have never once seen
anything like "Yale - Class of 19whatever, BA or whatever degree in Economics" anywhere for him.

It's always just: he went to Yale, for "2-1/2 years" and "graduated" and "by 1948" -- and you the reader are left
to fill in the blanks as to the class, the degree, the major.

If he did claim a degree, and if he did lie, well, then in my opinion, he duped voters when he
was running for Congress and duped the Senate who confirmed his appointment as CIA Director.

But again, this is just my little opinion here in the peanut gallery: A politician lied. (And, got away with it.)
