Going To War With The Intel You Have...
And in steps retired Vice Admiral John McConnell to take the place of outgoing National Intelligence Director John Negroponte. By all accounts the admiral is 'Cheney's man', unfazed--as Negroponte was--by the need to 'harden' the intel on Iran, clear about making the case for military action, and receptive to the need to augment domestic surveillance. Indeed, McConnell seems just the sort to help history repeat itself.
So I don't suppose that the Democrats (Did I hear a rumor that they're now in control of the Senate?) might want to put the kabosh on this nominee? Seems to me that one military officer willing to drive a stake through the heart of the Constitution--General Michael Hayden, now at CIA, formerly of NSA illegal surveillance fame--at the top of our national intelligence hierarchy is enough.
And yes, "Democrats in Control" was most assuredly A Rumor!!

Lew, see above.
Cranky...now there's a thought. Though with Negroponte it's not much of a stretch. The man has the personality of a doorknob.
Like I previously posted Democrats don't control the Senate they were warned about Liarberman.
They would not listen than what expects you to think they will listen now.
He'll be on the pro-war side of any vote for any war.
Cheney casts the tie breaker.
But this should be given more attention. Perhaps dems could peel off a few of those centrist Republicans to go their way.
By the way, has the administration come up with a pithy new slogan yet, like they did with "Shock and Awe?" My suggestion would be "Surge and Repent."
Me4Prez, what surprises me is that everyone already expects McConnell to cook the intel on behalf of the administration. Seems to me that Bush would go for a 'stealth' cooker. Someone who we expect to be impartial, but will deliver the predetermined result.
