John McLaughlin's does more damage than good, indicating a former deputy director who lacked a grasp of reality.

John McLaughlin meet Mr. Anonymous (Michael Scheuer). John McLaughlin review not too distant history of the Senator Frank Church subcommittee.

McLaughlin was part of the problem, not the solution. His commentary reinforces this notion.

John McLaughlin was a deputy director who had a vision that helped us bring down the Taliban, large parts of the al-queda network, Saddam Huessein, and many other nameless individuals. Saying he was a problem or the CIA were the main reason for the situation America faces is ignoring the fact that we didn't fly into the twin towers. Mr. McLaughlin didn't bomb a few trains in Spain, a nightclub around the world. No Mr. Mclaughlin was defending the nation, through ways not seen to the average American. Yes he and many within the agency made mistakes, but like he said and like many other intelligence experts say, intellignece has flaws and is not 100% correct. Blaming the tragedy of 9/11 on any individual within the American government is a weak argument.
