Leon Panetta at CIA

I’m trusting that there is some reasonable underlying motivation for this pick, but on the surface it’s just…weird.

Then again, maybe not. If Panetta really is a strong manager, an outsider may be just what the CIA needs to get it’s shit straight after the embarrassment of the Tenet years. Those guys should withhold judgment until Panetta gets the job.

Nevertheless, he has no experience going into, what seems to be, a job that strongly resists outsiders.

Right now, just have to give Obama the benefit of the doubt.
