Since the CIA was created in 1947 to spy on America's Cold War enemies, 38 high-profile government committees, commissions and conclaves have urged deep reforms of the nation's chief intelligence agency. Until now, however, no one has recommended simply abolishing the CIA and reassigning all of its spies, analysts, scientists and other experts -- as well as staff from 14 lesser-known intelligence agencies -- to a new National Intelligence Service. Gone would be the CIA and its logo.

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Sunday for the first time that Saddam Hussein's alleged mobile germ factories and labs probably "did not exist," and he sharply criticized prewar U.S. intelligence about Iraq's suspected weapons. Sen. Pat Roberts, a Kansas Republican who typically is a strong supporter of the CIA and the Bush White House, said the administration's use of flawed intelligence regarding the purported mobile bioweapons facilities is "embarrassing for everybody."

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee proposed sweeping reforms Sunday that would dismantle the CIA and remove several of the nation's largest intelligence agencies from the control of the Pentagon. The restructuring outlined by Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) is the most aggressive intelligence reform plan offered since the commission that investigated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks released its final report last month.

I don't understand all this negativity about Roseanne Barr and her show. She's a genuine original. Critics and rivals seem to want to cut the ground out from under anyone more successful than they are. Roseanne's show is warm, funny, dumb and full of real human values . . . just like real life . . . that's why we relate to it. Why don't the critics go after "Golden Girls," "Night Court" and other prime-timers that are rife with off-color, sexually implicit...
