I've been watching Bourne Ultimatium tonight and one thing that has struck me is that the CIA guy in charge is clearly a manager. Stuff is happening all around him, minions are telling him stuff and all he can manage is a series of surprised "What?" "Huh?" and other such clueless exclamations. If he were a seasoned operative who was promoted for his expertise, he'd be more on the ball and not slowing things down by constantly asking dumb questions.
