Hail, hail, the gang's all here...

Former CIA analyst Ray McGovern argues that the appointment of John Negroponte to be director of National Intelligence is the latest evidence that President Bush is strengthening his cabinet's capacity to mislead Congress and trample civil liberties.
Like Eliot Abrams (neocon Iran-Contra thug turned "democracy" advisor to GWB), Negroponte has a record of incomplete candor with Congress.  Had he been frank about serious government-sponsored savagery in Honduras, the country would have forfeited U.S. aid—thwarting the Reagan administration’s use of Honduras to support the Contras.  So Negroponte, too, has evidenced Abrams-style “patriotism.” Those in Congress who still care, beware.
