    FILE - In this Sept. 25, 2012 file photo, Missouri Republican Senate candidate, Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., speaks during a news conference in St. Louis. The website PoliticMo.com captured audio from a Saturday night fundraiser of Akin telling supporters that his opponent, Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo. goes to Washington, and, like a game of "fetch," brings home red tape, bureaucracy and executive orders. Akin says a senator should "bless" Missouri with solutions instead of more problems. (AP Photo/Jeff Roberson, File)

    Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi speaks during a ceremony to mark the 40th anniversary of the evacuation of the American military bases in the country, in Tripoli in this June 12, 2010 file photo. Months after rebels brought down the extravagant dictatorship of Muammar Gaddafi, the disarray in Libya's state finances at the end of 2011 was so bad the new leadership did not know the size of state assets, how their money was being spent, or what had happened to more than $2 billion transferred from the sovereign wealth fund. An internal National Transitional Council (NTC) document paints a picture of a government bureaucracy so fractured and disorganised that nobody appeared able to keep track of what money was coming in, and how much was going out.

    This undated photo provided by Levien & Company, Inc. shows Ken Levien in New York. Levien has no plans to hire more people for his real estate project management company in New York. He says his business has only about 85 percent of the amount of work it?s capable of doing because the building industry is still hurting from the recession. Levien has a lot of company among small business owners. Many aren?t hiring or expanding because the outlook for the economy or their own companies is uncertain. Economists say that in past recoveries, small companies were the first to hire. When the economy was improving, they could move faster than large companies because they didn?t have the bureaucracy that can slow the hiring process. Their hiring helped propel the economy forward. Anyone hoping for a burst in small business hiring soon may be waiting in vain. (AP Photo/ Levien & Company, Inc. )

    This undated handout photo provided by the CIA shows Jose Rodriguez. In a new book, the retired CIA officer who ordered the destruction of interrogation videos says he was tired of waiting for Washington?s bureaucracy to make a decision that protected American lives. The tapes, filmed in a secret CIA prison in Thailand, showed the waterboarding of terrorists Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Abd al-Nashiri. In his book, ?Hard Measures,? retired CIA officer Jose Rodriguez writes that, especially after the Abu Ghraib prison abuse scandal, if those videos were to leak out, CIA officers would be in danger.
