Is The CIA Keeping Kappes?

It appears that Stephen Kappes will remain as Deputy Director of the CIA in an effort to mollify Senators Feinstein, Rockefeller and others concerned about President-elect Obama's appointment of Leon Panetta as CIA Director.

It's a smart move. But it's window dressing. Panetta will erect a wall between Kappes and Obama as big as the wall he'll erect between the CIA and the FBI. Kappes will have no more access to Obama than I will. I predict Kappes will resign within 18 months and begin an exodus from the CIA this country has never seen.
