G'pa, Feinstein and I have been corresponding for years - she voices concern about all kinds of things, then votes for them. Classic enabler: "I think this might be the wrong thing to do, but I'll vote for it anyway..." While you'd like to think that people on that committee put their country ahead of their political party (or personal interests), you'd be kidding yourself. Haus, it was Bush who decided that he didn't like the CIA's information so had a more favorable intelligence office set up in the Pentagon - and he had no problem throwing Tenet under the bus, Bremer and the very deserving Rumsfeld too.

Stephley, it wasn't just Sen. Feinstein, but other DEMOCRATS on the Senate Intelligence committee. including Sen. Rockefeller. Putting down Sen. Feinstein, as an enabler of the Bush administration, is a cheap shot, and not one I expected from you. I would like to think that in areas like national security, involving the full access to national intelligence Agency reports, full briefings, that the men and women on THAT particular committee are putting their country ahead of their political party. :fogey:

eh whatever he'll get canned. they coudln't find anyone for this job, no one in intelligence would take it... who wants to be castrated? the CIA under Obama will be completely useless and god forbid anything goes wrong even for a second, Obama will throw the director under the bus so fast... i don't think anyone with any experience would stake their career on someone who very obviously doesn't want to use the organization nor will stand behind its practices. yik.... who would want that job? no wonder they would pick someone with no experience. he doesn't know any better.

I just heard that Dianne Feinstein is annoyed that no one asked her about him - so I'm all for him now. She's been such an enabler in dealing with the Bush Administration that nothing she says carries any weight.
