A political science major who ended up in the DEA??? You must have seen the light and got outta Dodge
Or, maybe it's more sinister... you were way to political to even be a political science major, now that I can believe! Or maybe it was another step deeper, you were too "unfair and unbalanced"...especially the unbalanced part.
I've got news for you....All Executive Branch agencies are political to a certain extent. I'm not violating any security oaths I swore too (I've checked) by revealing that the Basic Agent class behind mine (BA 5 in 04/1975) had 3 CIA Agents in it who were being trained to pose as DEA Agents in their overseas assignments. Tip O'Neill is famous for saying "All politics is local" & I'll say "All government is political."
Nixon used to be the "Top Dog" Politicizer .........but Bush has raised it to an "Art Form."
