UPDATED How the CIA Failed America

Man, it is good to see columns like this one from Richard Perle in The Washington Post. Of course the post does not mention that the Post was part and parcel of our Intel failures itself: when you publish for all our enemies to see the details of how we follow their financial transactions. But at least they appear to have Tenet pegged. Clinton's appointee of Tenet as CIA director (and Bush's decision to keep him on in a failed gesture of "bipartisanship") was an epic disaster for the United States. And we are still paying.

UPDATE: We have seen how Democrats got us here in the first place; now here is a superb analysis by Christopher Alleva as to why it would be an absolute catastrophe to entrust the Democrats with National Security now.
