Can Chris Cox rescue the CIA?

Ask Wen Ho Lee

It's no surprise that Cox mentions neither Los Alamos nor Lee in his extensive online, self-promoting biography of legislative and life accomplishments.

None of this disqualifies Cox, of course; relative ineptitude and inexperience are par for the Bush White House: like President Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, among many others, Chris Cox never served in the military. A lack of military experience didn't stop the Bushies from preemptively invading a sovereign nation and re-defining more than 200 years of U.S. foreign policy. Why should a lack of experience in the world of espionage prevent Cox from serving as director of the world's most powerful spy organization?
