On 26 May 1993, the Senate passed by voice vote legislation providing lump-sum payments of up to $25,000 for specific categories of CIA employees who take early retirement. The House had passed the bill two days earlier. Intelligence Committee Chairman Dan Glickman said "the payments were needed to help the intelligence agency reach a 17.5 percent reduction in its work force by 1997."

The CIA is certainly a bureaucracy; it is that by definition. It may even be "bloated," but the case is not made here.

Lardner, George, Jr., and Walter Pincus. "Cutting the CIA Down to Size." Washington Post National Weekly Edition, 18-24 Jan. 1993, 32.
Congress cut spending for intelligence activities by 8 percent in October 1992. Now, "interest in deeper spending reductions appears strong on both sides of Capitol Hill where knowledgeable lawmakers and staff members say the first wave of change has not amounted to more than a ripple."

Didn't happen, folks. This is worth reading just for the authors' explanation of the events which fostered charges that "politicization" occurred in the CIA's reporting on the effects of economic sanctions against Iraq.

Robinson, Linda, and Brian Duffy. "At Play in the Fields of the Spies." U.S. News and World Report, 29 Nov. 1993, 37.
This article reports the resignation of a CIA case officer (named as Mark McFarlin) and the disciplining of other CIA officials in connection with antinarcotics activities in Venezuela. Apparently, the head of the Venezuelan national guard, with whom the case officer was working, was a drug trafficker. This article is based on a DEA internal report leaked to U.S. News. (Question: Does this reflect a DEA effort to nudge the already politically crippled CIA out of the war on drugs?)
