Some reading for you... Bill O'Reilly is a moron, but you know that ...of interest is his description of Eric Holder as an "anti-agency attorney general." Tom Burghardt wrote an article on future DNI Dennis Blair for the Dissident Voice. And, inspired by Jeff Stein's long and somewhat oddball list of suggestions for CIA Director, I give you this oldie-but-goodie on CIA Inspector General John Helgerson, from Think Progress. The CIA is often discussed in terms of its morale - but in all honesty, I do not see how the status quo - Hayden inspecting his Inspector General - is good for morale at all.

Small wonder that "No Drama Obama" hasn't picked a CIA Director yet. Whoever believes the CIA is free of internal politics (and it's only us liberals who politicize it) is full of it.
