The PDOS does seem rather dim for someone with the brain capacity of two people. (BTW, 140 is rated as very bright, but not genius. Not something to sneeze at.)
There is also that 'Yeti' episode to suggest telepathic powers for Leader X. Somehow, it knows that PDOS is about to be captured, and intervenes.
Fic possibility: Anderson/Brighthead reveals that 2 of his team are missing. Think maybe word of that got back to psycho blonde? An agent in the room, or perhaps someone spilled the beans to a 'trusted aide' who was actually an agent? (Nowadays, we could suspect a fool feeding information to a news reporter who also works for the bad guys.)
