    WASHINGTON (AP) — National Intelligence Director Dennis Blair has tapped the deputy director of the Sept. 11 Commission to head the top U.S. office for intelligence analysis.

    Christopher Kojm will chair the National Intelligence Council, which oversees the analysis and production of interagency intelligence reports. That includes national intelligence estimates, documents that feature the consensus of analysis on critical national security issues. NIE's are the intelligence agencies' most comprehensive statements and are meant to be unvarnished and apolitical.

    Kojm helped produce the bipartisan and best-selling report by the Sept. 11 Commission, which delved into the intelligence failures that contributed to the success of the 2001 terrorist attacks. He was also a senior adviser to the bipartisan Iraq Study Group.

    "He understands how important quality intelligence is to the policymaking process, and he understands the critical need for intelligence to be timely, relevant and objective. He will be an outstanding NIC chairman," Blair said in a statement.

    Blair's first choice, Charles Freeman, bowed out of consideration two months ago under congressional criticism for his public comments about Israel and allegations about his ties to foreign governments.

    I think this is the individual 9/11 debunker Ronald Wieck cited as saying that Norman Mineta's testimony was found to be wrong.

    Kojm headed the commission's interview of NSA Director Michael Hayden. They discussed the NSA's intercepts of the hijackers' calls in the US, but these intercepts were not explicitly mentioned in the report. Why not?
