Obamarama! Intell nominee withdraws over water-boarding knowledge
#1
The fact that Obama wanted him in the first place tells us everything we need to know about the smiling chameleon:

Quote:US intelligence nominee withdraws
US President Barack Obama's choice for a top intelligence job has withdrawn after questions about his experience of CIA interrogation techniques.

Phillip Mudd worked for the CIA under former President George W Bush.

He was due to face Senate confirmation hearings next week for a new position at the Department of Homeland Security.

But Mr Mudd withdrew after some senators questioned if he had direct knowledge of techniques such as water-boarding - banned by President Obama.

Some say harsh interrogation techniques practised by the CIA in the past - such as water-boarding, or simulated drowning - amount to torture.

Under George Bush, Mr Mudd worked at the CIA's Office of Terrorism Analysis.

Earlier this year President Obama nominated him to be Under Secretary of Intelligence at the Department of Homeland Security.

In a statement Mr Mudd said he did not want to become a distraction for the president's agenda.

The shadow is a moral problem that challenges the whole ego-personality, for no one can become conscious of the shadow without considerable moral effort. To become conscious of it involves recognizing the dark aspects of the personality as present and real. This act is the essential condition for any kind of self-knowledge.

The amazing thing is not that he resigned [or had to], but that the Obama 'Change' Administration would appoint someone like that in the first place!!!! But then, so many [not all] of their 'picks' could just as easily have been Bush picks.
