Musings 142--Who will be Hayden's boss?

So Porter Goss got booted from CIA. I never felt quite right about him anyway.

The Bushies are now putting up General Michael V. Hayden, currently the number two guy behind the new National intelligence Director John Negroponte, for the director of Central Intelligence. (See Link) There is only one question I have that no one is answering--who does he answer too?

CIA is a civilian organization. Putting a four-star general in as the leader creates several problems:

Problem #1: Will Hayden still be number 2 to Negroponte, at least in status, thus, making Negroponte the head of CIA?

Problem #2: Since Donald Rumsfeld is the Secretary of Defense and is the head of the armed forces; then, is he not General Hayden's boss? But, if he is Hayden's boss, where does that place Negroponte?

Problem #3: Could not Don Rumsfeld order general Hayden to run CIA his way?

Problem #4: Is President Bush anyone's boss?

Problem #5: Who pays Hayden's salary--the military or CIA or both?

Problem # 6: Since Hayden was the former NSA leader who came up with domestic spying; then, is it not feasible that he will take the CIA into domestic areas too? I mean NSA was foreign stuff until he decided that it wasn't.

Basically, I think that this pretty much screws things up more. There are a bunch of republicans that also feel that way. The democrats are staying mum. That is probably a good thing.

==Narus ST-6400 and NarusInsight by Narus Ltd.==
Under Gen. Michael V. Hayden the NSA has forced tecom companies to implement massive domestic spying hardware. Even though Gen. Hayden has said at the National Press Club that "As the director, I was the one responsible to ensure that this program was limited in its scope and disciplined in its application." The NarusInsight is one type of domestic spying hardware. Capable of monitoring 10 billion bits of data per second in real-time. This means the NarusInsight can monitor an OC-192 in realtime. For reference 10 billion bits is 10 million Kbts, divide that by the average DSL user witch is 256 Kbts (10000000/256) you get monitoring of 39062.5 DSL lines in realtime for every piece of hardware. After data capture Narus softeware can replay data. What does this mean well acrodding too Narus website "Capabilities include playback of streaming media (for example, VoIP), rendering of Web pages, examination of e-mails and the ability to analyze the payload/attachments of e-mail or file transfer protocols." Think of it as Tivo for the internet able to replay 39000 US DSL users activity in realtime for every piece of hardware.
