An excerpt from the Washington Post article entitled “Violence, Turnover Blunt CIA Effort in Iraq” explains that CIA is having recruitment problems:

With the Bush administration's war on terrorism spread over five continents, and the hunt for Osama bin Laden intensifying as spring approaches, the agency "is stretched beyond their limits," even as it makes a historic drive for recruits, one senior CIA veteran said. … As an additional safeguard, and because of a shortage of CIA paramilitary personnel, the agency has also hired private security firms to protect bases and personnel. "We don't have enough people with skills required," one senior intelligence official said.”…To meet the demand for additional personnel, the CIA has turned to its reserves -- retirees who are willing to come back full time on short notice -- to fill many positions. To coax more people into the dangerous assignment, many officers and support staff are being rotated out of Iraq after 90-day stints.

I can think of one quick way to increase recruitment efforts by (at least) 50%. In fact, half of these ‘new’ recruits would already have most if not all of their paperwork completed.  Grin

Many of us contractors won't go over and help the feds because we don't want to submit to a poly. I don't want my professional reputation harmed by some bureaucrat with a quota. Lift the poly restriction, and many contractors would gladly join the efforts.
