Hey, do you remember when they told us that if we voted for McCain it would just be a continuation of conflicting interests and lack of transparency of the Bush years? Well, they were right.
The White House is jumping on the how it is the system failed in wake of the thwarted Christmas bomber attack and doing it in a manner that is entirely consistent with what we expect now from this administration.
President Obama's top counterterrorism adviser, John O. Brennan, will lead the White House review of intelligence community information practices and aviation security, even though he was CEO of the private company the government used to help manage a key terrorism database before he joined the administration.
In response to questions about Brennan's potential conflict of interest, White House ethics counsel Norm Eisen has issued a waiver for Brennan, official said.
No doubt, this guy may know this system like the back of his hand but how is he going to be able to objectively critique it and point out any flaws?
Eisen, you may recall, was the President’s hatchet man in the firing of Gerald Walpin, the Inspector General who was investigating Sacramento mayor and Obama supporter, Kevin Johnson and his charity organization so you know he’s got tons of credibility in the ethics department.
Yep, we’re in the very best of hands.
