Exactly What You'd Expect a Master Spy to Say 

A few days ago Matt Gunn dug up some refreshingly modest remarks made by the President's nominee for the top job at the CIA, Porter Goss, in an interview that did not make the final cut of Fahrenheit 9/11:
REP. GOSS: It is true I was in CIA from approximately the late 50’s to approximately the early 70’s. And it's true I was a case officer, clandestine services officer and yes, I do understand the core mission of the business. I couldn't get a job with CIA today. I am not qualified. I don't have the language skills. I, you know, my language skills were romance languages and stuff. We're looking for Arabists today. I don't have the cultural background probably. And I certainly don't have the technical skills, uh, as my children remind me every day, 'Dad you got to get better on your computer.’ Uh, so, the things that you need to have, I don't have.
Now Michael Moore has posted the Goss outtake as a 2-meg QuickTime file, which you can view here. (Link via Zemblan patriot S.P.)
