Admiral Mike McConnell retired yesterday.  McConnell was Vice Chairman of Booz Allen Hamilton, the giant intelligence contractor for the U.S. Government.  Most people know it now as the company that employed Edward Snowden. 

In his long career Admiral McConnell also served as Director of National Intelligence under Presidents Bush and Obama.  He was director of the National Security Agency from 1992-1996.   McConnell was the top intelligence officer for General Colin Powell in the run-up to the Iraq war in 2003.  It was Powell who told President Bush before the invasion that, “If you break it you own it.” In an interview, McConnell said that what is happening now in Iraq validates Powell’s prediction.  McConnell is in town for the Aspen Ideas Festival at the Aspen Institute.  He spoke with APR's Roger Adams.
