    Wish the transportation security chief guy had not withdrawn his nomination. Could he have been appointed during this recess? Maybe he could unwithdraw.

    Or, maybe we're better off. Hard to know what to believe. Here is what I read at Huffpost for the reason he withdrew. Other than this :), he sounds eminently qualified.

    He became a government consultant on human intelligence and counterintelligence, selling his company in 2009.

    Questions arose after his nomination about a contract his company had with the government to provide interrogators in Iraq. After the government ended the contract early, in 2004, Harding Security Associates claimed more money from termination of the contract than the Defense Department's inspector general said it was entitled to get. The firm refunded $1.8 million of that money in a 2008 settlement with the Defense Intelligence Agency.

      probably was a big problem.
