If the ghosts who inhabit the walls of the CIA could talk, they would tell Director Mike Pompeo to be careful. The agency is entering a danger zone where a White House in turmoil wants the CIA to take aggressive action overseas, but hasn't developed the clear strategy or political support needed to sustain it.Pompeo is an activist, an exuberant politician with a flair for delivering one-liners. Pompeo has some big problems that complicate his agenda. The president keeps pushing the agency to come up with options.r Finally, and most important, the administration Pompeo serves is in disarray.Trump wants action; Pompeo wants to deliver. This can-do temptation is inherent in the relationship between any president and CIA director, but in this case, it may be a cause for concern.Pompeo is as ambitious and ideologically passionate a CIA director as we've seen in decades.
