CIA directors blast investigation

Fox News reports:

Seven former directors of the Central Intelligence Agency on Friday urged President Obama to reverse Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision to hold a criminal investigation of CIA interrogators who used enhanced techniques on detainees. . .

The letter was signed by former directors Michael Hayden, Porter Goss, George Tenet, John Deutch, R. James Woolsey, William Webster and James R. Schlesinger.

Incidentally, that is all the former CIA directors still living other than Robert Gates (who is in the president’s cabinet), President George H. W. Bush (who is generally silent on politics today), and Stansfield Turner (Jimmy Carter’s CIA director who is best known for decimating its human intelligence resources).
