On Wednesday at 2:30, the Senate Foreign Relations committee will consider the nomination for the new head of the State Department Office of the Coordinator for Counterterrorism- the office with responsibility for "counterterrorism cooperation with foreign governments and participates in the development, coordination, and implementation of American counterterrorism policy."
The nominee? Dell L Dailey, currently the Director of the Center for Special Operations - the command responsible for "global operations and actionable intelligence" related to "high value targets."
Lt General Dailey was also the man in charge of Special Ops for the war in Afghanistan.
So Dailey, who has effectively been running the administration's Black Ops - including the program of extraordinary renditions - is now in line to take over the role at the State Department of overseeing and "improving" counterterrorism.
