Retired Admiral Sworn In As Director of Intelligence

New blood…

From WaPo:

Retired Vice Adm. John M. McConnell, sworn in yesterday as the second director of national intelligence, said new technologies and capabilities are needed to collect and analyze intelligence “because today’s threats move at increasing speeds.”

“The time needed to develop a terrorist plot, communicate it around the globe and put it into motion has been drastically reduced,” he told the audience of 300 at his swearing-in ceremony, which included President Bush and the leaders of the nation’s intelligence agencies. “The timeline is no longer a calendar — it is a watch.”

Well, he seems to grasp the situation, now we will have to wait and see what he is going to do about it.
