The CIA has a New Boss

Feb 12th, 2009 | WASHINGTON

The Senate has confirmed Leon Panetta to run the CIA.

Panetta’s nomination sailed through the chamber by a voice vote.With no direct intelligence gathering or analysis experience,  Obama selected Panetta because of his managerial skills and ability to repair the agency’s relationship with Congress after two tumultuous Bush terms.

During his confirmation hearings, Panetta said it was time for the agency to move ahead and not to dwell on the harsh treatment of foreign detainees n the previous administration. He won’t seek prosecutions of people who participated in such interrogations.
