Blame Washington's intelligence failure, not lack of police

Army Gen. Keith B. Alexander, the commander of the new U.S. Cyber Command, this week defended the creation of the military's digital war-fighting command and its training of cyberwarriors for future high-tech combat.
A three-year government investigation has found no wrongdoing by Bush-era Pentagon officials when they gave war briefings to retired military analysts who served as TV and radio commentators.
"When Mr. Barstow was awarded the Pulitzer, I also complained directly to the dean of the Columbia School of Journalism, which administers the Pulitzer awards committee," Col. Allard said. "Finally, I also contacted the New York Times public editor and publisher, all to no avail."
Col. Allard stated: "After more than three years, four separate federal investigations, and the expenditure of at least $2.3 million, we were fully exonerated by the DOD IG [Department of Defense inspector general]. That agency found no evidence that any federal law, regulation or instruction had been violated, despite the charges leveled by the New York Times."
