Rep. Pete Hoekstra (MI) published a piece today in Human Events. See an excerpt here for insight from the the top Republican on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:
Some people have claimed that Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair deserves much of the blame for intelligence failures associated with the Fort Hood, Christmas Day and Times Square terrorist attacks and that this was the reason he recently was forced to resign.
I categorically disagree with such a claim, and salute Mr. Blair as a consummate public servant who dedicated much of his professional life to the safety and defense of our great nation. As DNI, he pushed for openness, transparency and the participation of the congressional intelligence committees in conducting intelligence oversight. He will be missed.
