Hayden: ‘What Manner of Ignorance, Chaos, Hubris ... Would You Have’ to Think Back Channel Was a Good Idea?

‘What manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt, would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or appropriate idea?’

EXCERPT:

SMERCONISH: "General Hayden, is this nefarious or is this naiveté?" 
HAYDEN: "Michael, right now, I'm going with naiveté, and that’s not particularly very comforting for me. I mean, what manner of ignorance, chaos, hubris, suspicion, contempt would you have to have to think that doing this with the Russian ambassador was a good or an appropriate idea? So, again, naiveté out, doesn’t make me feel good about many things."
