WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today the Senate Intelligence Committee decided that they would allow the vote to go forward to confirm USAF General Hayden, a lifelong intelligence professional, to head up and take the reigns of the CIA. The American public should be glad that such a professional is willing to serve his country and they should expect the security of this nation to progress with his help.

For the record: Senators Russ Feingold, Ron Wyden, and Evan Bayh voted against the nominee. All are democrats, and be sure to not give them an OUNZE of credit for any progress made in the security of our nation. They really leave a bitter taste in my mouth.
