A heavy dose of integrity

Twenty-seven year CIA veteran Ray McGovern likes Obama’s selection of Leon Panetta to head the CIA.

“In choosing Leon Panetta to take charge of the CIA,” McGovern writes in an editorial for Consortium News, “President-elect Barak Obama has shown he is determined to put an abrupt end to the lawlessness and deceit with which the administration of George W. Bush has corrupted intelligence operations and analysis."

Rachel Maddow had an intriguing take on why Obama neglected to notify Senator Dianne Feinstein, Chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, that he’d selected Panetta, calling her one of the “failed overseers” on whose watch torture and warrantless wiretapping became routine under the Bush adminstration.
