“The Whore Factor”

Your’s truly is quoted in Rolling Stone, by the magazine’s political reporter Matt Tabibi.

Even stranger, however, is the fact that [John] Brennan used to head the Intelligence and National Security Alliance, or INSA, in independent nonprofit “research center” which is sort of like a chamber of commerce for intelligence contractors, although it claims it does not lobby. Tim Shorrock, a terrific reporter who has written a lot about the intelligence community, described the position of INSA chief as being like a “shadow intelligence director” and noted that prior to Brennan, current DNI Mike McConnell was chairman of INSA. What’s strange about this is that Obama would even think about picking a guy so close to the contracting community to run his intelligence operations. “Obama had been pretty critical of the whole contracting regime,” Shorrock told me. “So that was pretty odd.”
