I love DiRita. His statements always include a bit of rather obvious weaselly legalese. The most recent:

DiRita denied that Rumsfeld controls a secret group of spies. "There is no unit that is directly reportable to the Secretary of Defense for clandestine operations as is described in The Washington Post," he said in a statement. "Further, the Department is not attempting to 'bend' statutes to fit desired activities, as is suggested in this article."

In other words, the unit doesn't report directly to Rumsfeld and we don't think we're bending the statutes.
