NSA Program Is Deterring Attacks, Hayden Deserves Medal

General Hayden deserves a medal for what he has done to make America safer, particularly with regard to his service at the National Security Agency and the terrorist surveillance program which is designed to detect and deter terrorist attacks. The problem is I think he's been criticized by some who would literally try to undermine that important program, and I couldn't believe the kinds of questions he was being asked to disclose classified information so our enemies could know more about what we're doing and avoid detection. And obviously the deterrence is an important part of that.
