CIA Staff Woefully Monolingual

Can't the Central Intelligence Agency offer some sort of study abroad program? Just 13 percent of the CIA's employees speak a foreign language, USA Today reports. The pitiful number leaves the agency vulnerable to further criticism for failing to hire more bilingual staff after September 11, 2001. Advertisements on Facebook and YouTube have tried to reel in foreign language speakers but apparently have not attracted a substantial number of takers. Recently, the CIA also has done recruiting drives in immigrant communities with large Arab populations such as Detroit, offering big signing bonuses for those who speak "mission critical languages." At least one place is still hiring in this economy.
