Is the CIA director playing politics with intelligence?
The WaPo runs this down and finds that the Deputy DNI, Donald Kerr disagrees, as do the briefings given to Sen. Rockefeller, the Senate intelligence chair.
Later: The AFP does an even better job listing the questions and questioners over Hayden's rosy assessment.
So, yeah. I would like to know where Hayden finds basis for his public claims of success.
