I concur with the reservations about Obama’s nominee as Director of National Intelligence included in Connie Hair’s article. Her piece can be found here. http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=37373
Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James R. Clapper Jr., nominated to replace Dennis Blair as President Obama’s director of national intelligence will face Democratic resistance. He’s the man who postulated that Iraq’s stockpile and manufacturing equipment for weapons of mass destruction were spirited out of Iraq to Syria during the months preceding the 2003 American invasion to overthrow Saddam Hussein.
Look for some questions about that issue during Clapper’s confirmation hearings. If the questions are not asked, it gives additional credence to President George W. Bush’s contention that WMDs were present in Iraq.
