Press Release: Fmr. CIA Director Hayden And Fmr. Sec. Chertoff: Blaming Those Who Put Their Lives On The Line Is Not The Leadership We Need

October 12, 2012

Former CIA Director Michael Hayden and former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff made the following statement on Vice President Biden's comments last night on the terrorist attack in Libya:

"During the Vice Presidential debate, we were disappointed to see Vice President Biden blame the intelligence community for the inconsistent and shifting response of the Obama Administration to the terrorist attacks in Benghazi. Given what has emerged publicly about the intelligence available before, during, and after the September 11 attack, it is clear that any failure was not on the part of the intelligence community, but on the part of White House decision-makers who should have listened to, and acted on, available intelligence. Blaming those who put their lives on the line is not the kind of leadership this country needs."
