Obama Gives Aid and Comfort to Terroritsts

The CIA stands for Central Intelligence Agency whose job it is TO PROTECT US!!!!!!!! and for the head of this most important agency one would think you'd want a guy with some kind of experience or at least knowledge about this agency. Well folks we have the spectacle of a President of the United States sending a message to all the rotten terrorists around the world. Obama might as well shout it on the BBC:

"Hey, terrorists - come on over and do what you will the door is wide open cause I, Obama, just chose Leon Pannetta to be head of the CIA - no really - he has no experience. It'll be a cake walk!" Ralph Peters a former career intelligence office in the US army writes:

The director's job at the CIA isn't a party favor. This is potentially a matter of life and death for thousands of Americans. But the choice of Panetta tells us all that Barack Obama doesn't take intelligence seriously.

Mark my words: It'll bite him in the butt.

After the military, the intel community is the most complex arm of government. You can't do on-the-job training at the top. While a CIA boss needn't be a career intelligence professional, he or she does need a deep familiarity with the purposes, capabilities, limitations and intricacies of intelligence.

Oh, and you'd better understand the intelligence bureaucracy.
Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.), who was blindsided - and appalled - by the Obama mafia's choice, has the essential knowledge of how the system works. She, or a similar expert, should have gotten this nod. But the president-elect wanted a clean-slate yes-man, not a person of knowledge and integrity.

We're witnessing the initial costs of Obama's career-long lack of interest in foreign policy, the military and intelligence. He doesn't think the top job at the CIA's important and just wants political cover on that flank.

...Panetta's appointment is a sop to the hard left, a signal that intelligence will be emasculated for the next four - or eight - years.

Think morale's been bad at the CIA? Just wait. (READ at New York Post)
