Journalism vs Security

by Mac McMullen / May 13, 2006 11:42 AM PDT

Rep Pete Hoekstra, chairman of the US House Intelligence Committee, in an op-ed piece in the LA Times on May 13, 2006:

WE ARE IN the first war of the Information Age, and we have a critical advantage over our enemy: We are far better at gathering intelligence. It's an advantage we must utilize, and it's keeping us safe.

But every time classified national security information is leaked, our ability to gather information on those who would do us harm is eroded.

The point needs to be made. And some who are only interested in ascending to power need to be told to knock it off.

....Hoekstra is not opposed to Hayden as an individual, but as a military personality heading up a civilian agency. The wrong man at the wrong time. Hoekstra frankly states that the DOD was the strongest opponent to reorganizing the intelligence community, including the CIA. He feels a perception caused by a military figurehead at the CIA at this time could result in lack of cohesion within the agency; confidence in the CIA at home, and problems world wide.
