The man in line to be the next director of the C-I-A says the intelligence business has become too caught up in politics. He says it's become "the football in American political discourse."

In remarks prepared for his confirmation hearing, Air Force General Michael Hayden says the intelligence community and the C-I-A have taken "an inordinate number" of hits in recent years.

He says some are fair but "many of them" are not.

Hayden faces many questions from the Senate Intelligence
Committee.

In addition to the administration's warrantless wiretap program, which he led, senators are expected to ask Hayden about whether he
will be independent from the Bush administration.
