If It's Broke Don't Fix ItSecretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld voiced his opposition to the idea of creating the position of national intelligence director. The proposal was a key recommendation of the 9/11 commission. "We would not want to place new barriers or filters between the military… and those [intelligence] agencies." Rumsfeld told the Senate Armed Services Committee. I totally concur. Things are working so well with our intelligence community why would we want to make any changes? And hell, the Pentagon has plenty of filters already in place. New ones might cause the truth to leak through and that would be intolerable. You don't suppose Donald is concerned about losing control of intelligence do you? No, that can't be it. He's too much of a patriot to let ego get in the way of doing what's best for America.
