President Obama has named retired Air Force General and current Pentagon intelligence official James Clapper to be director of national intelligence.

The report says there is bipartisan opposition to a former military man heading the civilian intelligence gathering. Nevertheless, if Clapper’s nomination is approved, he has my best wishes and I hope he does an outstanding job keeping America and Americans safe.

  1. Air Force suggests National Reconnaissance Office but he could be a multitasker. After all, John Boyd, the greatest strategic thinker of the post world war II era was a fighter pilot.

  2. Reading elsewhere it is stated that Blair was not a yes man, clapper is.
