I welcome Jim Hoagland's column about the nefarious activities of rogue elements of the US intelligence community and their allies in the press. Several of my earlier articles covering topics such as Iranian nuclear capabilities, Abu Ghraib, or the Netwar battles prior to the 2004 election all show a significant intelligence agency information warfare campaign against the President. Hoagland is right; it has been a brilliant series of info operations. Fortunately, the advent of the new media can help clean up this rat's nest. Our national security depends on it.
