My Grandmother's Intelligence is Steadily Evaporating, Too...

Bush is tackling more than one Social Security crisis. From today's NYT, as noted by Today's Papers:

The C.I.A.'s current leadership is concerned, the officials said, that ... there is no clear plan for how the agency can extricate itself from what could be a lengthy task of holding and caring for a small population of aging terrorists whose intelligence value is steadily evaporating and who are unlikely ever to be released or brought to trial.

On the upside, the dental plan is a steal. Because they don't have any teeth left.
