A Missouri Senator on the Senate Armed Services Committee urges caution before the committee agrees to create an intelligence czar. Senator Talent says an intelligence czar to oversee all aspects of U-S intelligence gathering might or might not be the way to go. Talent says he’s most concerned about what would happen to military intelligence which seems to be doing a pretty good job as is. Talent also worries Congress will rush to get something done before the November election when lawmakers are more prone to have politics influence their decisions. Talent hopes whatever Congress does put together will end the lingering problems of intelligence sharing as demonstrated in the failure to predict the Septemebr 11th attacks.
