VICTORY IS AN ORPHAN:

In an interview with the Associated Press, Hayden said that top members of Congress were kept well informed all along the way, notwithstanding protests from some that they were kept in the dark.

"One of the points I had in every one of the briefings was to make sure they understood the scope of our activity," said Hayden, who also previously headed the National Security Agency.

"At the political level, this had support," said Hayden, jumping into an escalating controversy that has caused deep political divisions and lingering debate about the Bush administration's counter-terrorism policies.
