Just what we need: more “intelligence,” and more directors of said virtue.

Added the committee’s top Democrat, Sen. Joseph I. Lieberman (Conn.): “A strong case was made that if you are going to create a national intelligence director, it can’t be a phony, it can’t be cosmetic. It’s got to be real, and the way to make it real in this town is with budget authority.”

Collins and Lieberman are working to present an intelligence bill to the full Senate by the end of September. Lieberman said the goal is to win passage before Congress leaves for the November elections.

In Washington, “reform” always means MORE.
