Hayden: Attack on Intelligence

Reading Michael Hayden's Attack on Intelligence I am repeatedly reminded of just why I held this man in ... well, contempt is too strong a word, as someone who, despite (or because of ) a thoroughgoing military and historical education and piercing intelligence, managed to convince himself that waterboarding was justified and the wholesale violation of the Fourth Amendment without even notice to the American people was likewise justified by circumstances that followed 9/11. However, his case that the current attack on our body politic, partly internal and partly emanating from Russia, is an even more serious threat, is totally convincing and well supported by the evidence he cites.
