     In honor of Marjorie Cohn, Professor of Law at Thomas Jefferson School of Law in San Diego, California, and her TruthOut (.org) articles which she has been absent from writing and posting for the past two months, I hereby post the following series of her last five excellent and very important articles leading up to that absence, as her at-least-weekly articles of truth have been much missed on TruthOut and by this blogger:

    In his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, General Michael Hayden promised to promote autonomy and objectivity in the CIA if confirmed as its new director. Hayden assured the senators he would provide “hard-edged assessments” and be tolerant of dissenting views on intelligence matters. “When it comes to speaking truth to power,” Hayden declared, “I will lead CIA analysts by example. I will… always give our nation’s leaders the best analytic judgment.”

    The evidence, however, suggests precisely the opposite. As head of the National Security Agency, this 4-star general walked in lockstep with his commander in chief, George W. Bush. Hayden helped designed the illegal program of spying on our telephone calls and emails and then repeatedly defended it when interrogated by the senators at his hearing, citing “legal” opinions of Bush’s hired guns in the Justice Department.

    Rather than providing the White House with a neutral assessment of Iran’s nuclear capabilities, we can expect Hayden to give Bush the “intelligence” the president seeks to justify his war on Iran. Things did not run as smoothly as Bush would have wished under the last two CIA directors. He had to dispatch Dick Cheney to the CIA several times to furnish the “intelligence” he needed to rationalize his war on Iraq.

    Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) asked Hayden if he was “comfortable” with under secretary of defense for policy Douglas Feith’s personal intelligence-analysis cell, which hyped a link between Iraq and Al Qaeda. Hayden said he wasn’t comfortable with it and protested that he wasn’t aware of a lot of the activity going on leading up to the Iraq war.

    But when questioned about Colin Powell’s use of false WMD information to support his infamous appearance before the United Nations in the run-up the war, Hayden made a telling admission.

    In response to Levin’s question about the legal standard for declassifying information in the public interest, Hayden said, “We used that in Powell’s speech. George [Tenet] had to call me for three tapes.” Hayden was right in the middle of the preparation for Powell’s disingenuous presentation.
