Saw this in the news: BBC Linky Sounds like Obama's national security team has problems. Admiral Blair has been undercut by the President in conflicts with Leon Panetta, CIA Director. Panetta is a former congressman and was Chief of Staff for President Clinton but has no background in intelligence. He did serve as a JAG officer in the Army briefly in the mid 60's. There seem to be rumours about that Obama may not replace the Director of National Intelligence and revert to having the Director of Central Intelligence control the intelligence community.
