Clapper on the Outs

The Baltimore Sun reports that Gen (Ret) Clapper is dusting off his fishing pole:

After clashing with Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld, the director of the government’s third largest intelligence agency will be leaving his position in June, according to current and former government officials.

For the past four years, James R. Clapper Jr. has headed the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, which collects intelligence mainly from high-powered satellite photos and produces detailed maps for other government agencies.

Never met the man, but unlike all of his peers I never heard anyone say a bad word about him. That says a lot.
