This article reports on Chris Carney who is planning to run for Congress as a Democrat in a heavily Republican district in Pennsylvania. Carney served as a counterterrorism analyst for the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush from 2002 to 2004. His candidacy has been greeted favorably by Democrats. Carney was one of the intelligence analysts who established a connection between Saddam Hussein and Al Qaeda, a position widely discredited, but which Carney continues to believe.
