Bush Names Hayden To Head CIA

The President announced today that Tom Hayden Sterling Hayden Hayden Christensen Michael Hayden (that's General Hayden to you) as the new Director of the CIA, replacing Porter Goss.

Hey, I've been paying no attention to this since Friday so I don't know Gen. Hayden from Adam but the folks at Wizbang are high on this appointment:

"General Hayden is a superb choice for several reasons:

1) He used to run the NSA and the terrorist surveillance program, so he is an expert in these areas.

2) His nomination will bring to the surface those lawmakers who are for a strong national security, particularly the terrorist surveillance program, and those who are not. With the November elections approaching, the American people will need to know this information.

3) He is a military man. In spite of the claims from Rep. Pete Hoekstra that this is a problem, many military men have run the civilian CIA. I'm hoping General Hayden can infuse into the CIA two very important things it needs: discipline and loyalty."

Looks good to me.
