Patrick Leahy Cuts Admiral Mike McConnell a New One

The Chairman of the Judiciary Committee lit into the Director of National Intelligence before his opening statement.

And well he should, McConnell is suggesting that oversight is aiding terrorists.
...Leahy pointed to a line in McConnell's prepared statement suggesting that "some" do not appreciate the threat posed by al-Qaeda, and, visibly angry, warned him against accusing "any Senator on this panel" of playing fast and loose with national security.

And he called on McConnell to end his "irresponsible" repeated comments that debating changes to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act will mean that "some Americans are going to die."
