CIA Chief Hayden Turned Blind Eye To Arms For Al Qaeda In 1990s
Hayden's European Command Failed To Interdict Military Supplies To Bin Laden Terror Network, Didn't Share Bosnia Intel With Allies

From 1993 to 1995, money, arms and expertise flooded from the United States to al Qaeda military networks in Bosnia-Herzegovina -- all under the watchful eye of Gen. Michael V. Hayden, then chief of U.S. military intelligence in the region, today named by President Bush as his nominee to take over the CIA.
Hayden served as director of the U.S. European Command Intelligence Directorate, based in Stuttgart, Germany, from May 1993 to October 1995. He subsequently went on to lead the secretive National Security Agency from 1999 to 2005.
