"With his choice of Admiral Dennis Blair as director of national
intelligence, President-elect Barack Obama has now named three recently
retired four-star military officers to serve in his cabinet. This
unprecedented representation of the senior officer corps within the
incoming Democratic administration is indicative of a growth in the
political power of the US military that poses a serious threat to basic
democratic rights."
