Bush thanked him for his candid advice during a time of transition. Neither man explained why Goss was leaving and no replacement was announced. The CIA fell under a newly created director of national intelligence as part of reforms enacted after intelligence failures related to the September 11 attacks. “He’s led ably,” Bush said as he sat next to Goss in the Oval Office of the White House. Goss said he believed the CIA was “on a very even keel, sailing well.”
