Bush mum on Cabinet proposal
WASHINGTON -- The White House reserved judgment Monday about whether to establish a Cabinet-level national intelligence chief. President Bush said he was "still taking a good, hard look" at candidates to lead the CIA.
A major reorganization of the intelligence community and creation of a Cabinet-level intelligence agency are expected to be among primary recommendations of the independent commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
The commission announced it would release its final report Thursday, culmination of nearly 20 months' investigation into the nation's worst terror attack.
Bush said he would await the commission's report before commenting.
