The Panetta Pick Isn’t So Hard To Understand After All

Sen. Dianne Feinstein made the innocent-sounding but in fact wholly-remarkable statement that the choice of Leon Panetta for DCI is unsatisfactory because the role should be filled by a person with enough experience to understand what the CIA actually does.

Wouldn’t it be equally remarkable to suggest that the American people should have elected a President with enough experience to understand what the government actually does?

We shouldn’t be surprised that a man like Obama would pick a man like Panetta for a critically-important job that he isn’t qualified to do.
