Veteran CIA analyst Ray McGovern just told Kitty Pilgrim of Lou Dobbs that DCI nominee Gen. Michael Hayden enjoyed popularity at the NSA because he DIDN'T violate the "11th commandment" of intelligence, which is that you don't spy on Americans. Come 9/11, he said, when Bush came to him and said, let's institute a domestic surveillance program, Hayden went along. As a military officer, Ray opined, Hayden should have known better than to follow instructions which he knew would violate the law. But, McGovern concluded, Hayden is a man who will "do what he's told."

And that's what makes him dangerous as head of CIA.
