U.S. intelligence takes yet another step backward


Foreign Policy has an interview up with Michael Scheuer, the former head of the Osama Bin Laden intelligence unit of the CIA, and the author of Imperial Hubris, a book I haven’t read yet but will definitely pick up after reading this interview. Scheuer says the last thing you want is a general in charge of a spy agency, and that pretty much everything the Bush Administration has done post-9/11 to address flaws in the intelligence apparatus has been an abysmal failure.
