And Next We Find a Philosopher King, and....

David Ignatius urges Obama to find a Warren Buffet of intelligence to be the next director of national intelligence.
The right answer? Find the Buffett-like manager who can create a truly great U.S. intelligence system at DNI, then let that person pick a CIA director who will be nonpolitical. And then, as the late CIA Director Richard Helms liked to tell his trench-coated colleagues, "Let's get on with it."
Sounds good. But... where do we look?


  1. David Ignatius knows, but if he told you he'd have to kill you . . . sorry, I couldn't resist.


  2. I don't know the real name of the person he would pick, but I think he'll be played by Leonardo DiCaprio.
