Turner Questions Hayden Nomination

Admiral Stansfield Turner (ret.), in a surprising commentary on NPR's Morning Edition, today urged the Senate not to confirm the appointment of General Michael Hayden to the post of CIA director -- if Hayden maintains his previously stated contention that it is legal for the government to eavesdrop on the phone calls of Americans without a warrant. Turner served in CIA's top spot under President Jimmy Carter.

NPR will post audio of the commentary at 10:00 AM.
