Even before President George W. Bush has named his choice to take over the CIA, the Air Force general who is the front-runner drew fire from lawmakers in his own party who say a military man should not lead the civilian spy agency. The criticism of the expected choice of Gen. Michael Hayden to head the CIA came from some influential Republicans in Congress as well as from Democrats. "I do believe he's the wrong person, the wrong place, at the wrong time," said House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra, a Republican. "We should not have a military person leading a civilian agency at this time."
