Who is Stephen Cambone? He's a Neo Con Rumsfeld appointed to a post that did not exist before 2003. He's described as the Intelligence Czar, and one of the few people Rumsfeld trusts. He's largely despised within the Pentagon & elsewhere, according to reports. He's also NOT qualified for the position.

Who is Stephen Cambone?

July 20, 2004

The release of the 9/11 Commission report this week – and the recent release of the Senate report on intelligence – are at last providing a clearer picture of the flaws in our system of gathering intelligence. And as the use of intelligence by the Bush administration in the run-up to 9/11 comes under increased scrutiny, we are also learning a great deal about the people behind its collection, interpretation, and dissemination.

A name that we have not frequently heard mentioned, however, is Stephen Cambone. As the nation's first ever undersecretary of defense for intelligence, Cambone wields vast power within the intelligence community; yet, his only qualifications for the post are a fierce loyalty to Donald Rumsfeld and an unshakeable right wing ideology.

interesting article. the DoD effectively controls our foreign policy these days. the appointment of Cambone is a part the neocon attempt to politicize intelligence, and shift policy making decisions away from the state department and into the hands of the ideologues.

Yeah, people better wake up to what's going on. Otherwise, it's gonna be too late. One more big "terror" attack and we're toast. The DoD HAS to go back to what it was pre-Rumsfeld: servant not director.
