Officials believe the White House chose new Intelligence chief in effort to darken Iran Intelligence Estimate, and broaden domestic surveillance.

The nomination of retired Vice Admiral John Michael "Mike" McConnell to be Director of National Intelligence is part of an effort by the Vice President to tighten the Administration's grip on domestic intelligence and grease the wheels for a more aggressive stance towards Iran, current and former intelligence officials believe.

Rep Ron Paul (R-TX) (be sure to listen to his speech on the House floor) says to expect a Gulf of Tonkin-type incident event to launch us into another front with Iran.
