Columnist spies possible Obama intelligence leaders


Colin Clark, writing on the blog DOD Buzz, drops a few possible names to head President-elect Barack Obama¹s intelligence team. 


Rep. Tim Roemer (D-Ind.), leads Clark's list. Roemer co-sponsored legislation that created the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States, known as the 9/11 Commission, and co-chaired the commission.


Another possibility: Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif), chairwoman of the House Homeland Security subcommittee on intelligence, information sharing and terrorism risk assessment.


One more: Christopher Tucker, senior vice president for national programs at erdas. Tucker was the founding chief strategic officer at In-Q-Tel, the CIA¹s venture capital fund and is a board member of the U.S. Geospatial Intelligence Foundation.
