Michael Scheuer, a former CIA Officer In Charge of the hunt for Bin Laden is critical of former President Clinton and the man reported to be President-elect Obama's pick to head the CIA, Leon Panetta:
Appearing on on Fox News' "Special Report" , Scheuer said:
"The agency officers will be well aware that bin Laden is a problem today because Mr. Panetta and Mr. Clinton and their colleagues chose to do nothing to protect America."

Scheuer's remarks are sure to get under Clinton's skin. You might remember that Bill Clinton went nuts during his September 2006 encounter with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. Clinton suffered his meltdown when Wallace asked him if he did enough to get Osama bin Laden because Clinton knows he did not do enough.
Scheuer had more to say on CNN:
"He clearly has nothing on his curriculum vitae that suggests he should be the candidate for this job," Scheuer said. "It's not apparent he has any talent that is pertinent to the job."
Scheuer said Panetta's lack of experience could damage the agency and jeopardize national security.
"What Mr. Panetta's appointment says is that there's no urgency in the mind of the Obama administration that they think they can send somebody over there who can learn on the job and that the enemy will wait to attack us," he said."
