U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., today made the following statement regarding the resignation of Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair.
"Adm. Blair brought a wealth of intelligence background to the difficult position of the DNI. However, we have seen recent failures of the intelligence community leading up to the Christmas Day incident and the terrorist attempt in New York City. This type of failure cannot be tolerated. The intelligence community needs strong and focused leadership and I hope the White House moves quickly to put that leadership in place."
