Panetta Claims Cheney Almost Wishing For a Terrorist Attack on U.S. Soil

In an interview with The New Yorker, CIA Director Leon Panetta expresses his displeasure with former Vice-President Dick Cheney's criticism of the Obama Administration in very blunt terms.

Panetta said, "It's almost as if he's wishing that this country would be attacked again, in order to make his point. I think that's dangerous politics."

I didn't like Panetta's appointment and it's comments like those that make me recall how Senator Dianne Feinstein said the CIA "would be best served by having an intelligence professional in charge at this time." An intelligence professional most certainly would not have publicly leveled such an accusation towards Cheney - almost or otherwise.

Panetta is behaving neither intelligently nor professionally.
