Schwarz supports Gen. Hayden

U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz said yesterday he supports President Bush's decision to nominate Gen. Michael Hayden as the next director of the CIA.
Hayden's nomination to replace Porter Goss has drawn fire from many Republicans - including Reps. Pete Hoekstra and Mike Rogers of Michigan - who say a military general shouldn't be running the foreign intelligence gathering agency.
Schwarz pointed out that a number of military men have presided over the CIA, including its first director, Rear Adm. Roscoe Hillenkoetter, the Lansing State Journal reported.
Likewise, President Jimmy Carter's CIA chief, Admiral Stansfield Turner, was an admiral in the Navy.
Schwarz was a CIA operative in southeast Asia sometime during the Vietnam conflict.

Under Gen. Hayden the NSA has forced tecom companies to implement domestic spying hardware.The NarusInsight is one type of domestic spying hardware.Capable of monitoring 10 billion bits of data per second.For reference thats 39000 DSL lines in realtime. After data capture Narus can replay data. Think of it as Tivo for the internet for 39000 DSL users. They talk about limits hardware like this is anything but.

Porter Goss was also Bush's first pick. After 5 years of Osama's freedom these guys still can't find him - even though Goss said he knew where he was over a year ago.
