DNI = Subservient Yes Man That Turns Blind Eye to Human Rights Abuses

This is a very frightening appointment. Negroponte, Dr. Death Squad himself, will be the Director of National Intelligence. It's some guy with no intelligence experience. He's somebody that Dubya can control, which is the most important thing to this administration. Rumsfeld is the real intelligence czar, and everybody knows that now. He's got 80% of the budget under his thumb. So, appointing Mr. Green Zone to this post proves the post means nothing. That's my interpretation. Negroponte VS Rumsfeld ? Well, I don't see the point really. When you've got two yes men battling for power, it doesn't really matter does it?

update: Daily Kos' Armando and Billmon give some further context.
