Shaw's Feb. 19 letter: Shaw asserts that Anthony Lake is not qualified to serve as head of the CIA because he played political games, participated in subterfuge and concealed information from oversight.

If, as you report (Feb. 21), Washington's anti-drug establishment shared sensitive details of U.S. drug interdiction strategy with Mexican Drug Czar Jose de Jesus Gutierrez Rebollo, the implications of his recent arrest are clear: Personalities and best intentions aside, the U.S. government was, in effect, pooling information and working hand in hand with foreign drug cartels.
