McConnell Sworn-in as New 'Top Spy'

Hosted by

Retired Admiral Mike McConnell was sworn in today as the second Director of National Intelligence, a job created after intelligence failures before 9/11 and the Iraq invasion.  One of his jobs will be briefing the President on a daily basis.  The President, speaking at McConnell's swearing-in, reaffirmed that he values the "intelligence products" created by the military, calling them an "important part of my strategic thought." Tim Starks reports on intelligence for Congressional Quarterly.
