Team Obama's bizarre behavior helps Gitmo terrorists foil justice

Leading Democrats sharply criticized a former CIA chief on Monday for suggesting that a disputed torture report produced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein's Senate panel was motivated by her "emotional feeling" and not by a desire for objectivity.
With Israeli-Palestinian peace talks on the brink, the Obama administration reportedly is considering the release of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard as a way to keep the two sides at the table, but the former head of the CIA said Sunday such a move would be disastrous.
The chief counsel and former staffers of a 1975 Senate committee that investigated CIA abuses are asking Congress and President Barack Obama to form a special panel to probe missteps by the nation's spy agencies.
Retired Gen. Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency, said Friday that President Obama's speech on reforms to U.S. spying programs will focus on making people feel comfortable with the practices — not sweeping changes.
A former political reporter who happened to overhear an off-record telephone conservation between the ex-director of the NSA while they traveled on a train out of Washington, D.C., did what any reputable spy would: He listened closer and tweeted the talk.
The fastest-growing cyber threat is from a kind of digital mass shooter, a deranged or outraged hacker able to obtain cyberweapons currently available only to nation-states and organized crime, a former senior U.S. intelligence official said Thursday.
Senators put forward a bipartisan, business-backed measure Tuesday that aims to toughen the nation's cybersecurity by relying on voluntary compliance by banks, utilities and other companies.
Largely forgotten after its initial introduction in June, the "Protecting Cyberspace as a National Asset Act of 2010," S.3480, was back in the headlines following its recent endorsement by former CIA Director Michael Hayden, who said he believes the president needs to have the authority to shut down the entire Internet "when he feels as if he has to."
Regarding Feinstein, he said, "When she gets an idea in her head, she's very focused" - in much the same manner as current CIA Director John Brennan.
In an interview last month with The Associated Press, Hayden said "personalities really matter" when it comes to the Senate committee's rift with the CIA.
