ABSTRACT
As a former United States Marine Corps officer, retired Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer whose last assignment was in covert action policy, and author of a forthcoming book on covert action policies and the presidency, the author likes to correct several significant errors in a letter by Commander D. Winters. He objects to—indeed, appears to take personal umbrage at—the use of the CIA in roles that he asserts are "rightfully the domain of the military," including the use of the CIA's version of the Predator unmanned aerial vehicle to kill several terrorists. There is no separate military oath—all military personnel understand their first loyalty is to the Constitution, the country, and civilian leadership, and not to any military organization or commanders.
