George Tenet The Idiot

Tenet Memoir Draws Heat From Key Players

NEW YORK - The backlash has built up even before the official release of former CIA Director George Tenet's memoir, with criticism about his version of the run-up to the Iraq war, interrogation techniques and other events.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Sunday disputed Tenet's claim that the Bush administration, before the U.S.-led invasion in March 2003, never had a serious debate about whether Iraq posed an imminent threat or whether to tighten existing sanctions.

"The president started a discussion practically on the day that he took power about how to enhance sanctions against Iraq," she said. "You may remember that in his first press conference, he said the sanctions had become Swiss cheese."

Rice, who was Bush's national security adviser in his first term, said the administration reviewed the sanctions, went to the United Nations to strengthen them and tried to tighten the no-fly zone in northern Iraq to better police Saddam Hussein's forces.

She also said the question about the imminence of the threat was not "if somebody is going to strike tomorrow."

"It's whether you believe you're in a stronger position today to deal with the threat, or whether you're going to be in a stronger position tomorrow," she said. "And it was the president's assessment that the situation in Iraq was getting worse."

A Tenet associate, who spoke on condition of anonymity before the book's release Monday, said Tenet was not talking about improving the sanctions, but rather the debate about the wisdom of going to war. The associate said those debates did not happen in the presence of Tenet or other senior CIA officials, despite their participation in numerous discussions in the White House's situation room.

The memoir from the second-longest serving CIA chief covers many topics - from his attempts to help negotiate peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians during the Clinton administration, to the days surrounding Sept. 11, 2001, and to the invasion of Iraq and its aftermath.

Rest Of Story Here
Can George Tenet be any more of an idiot? He gave us faulty intelligence on Iraq, (Some would argue differently) Failed to get the ok from Sandy Burglar or Clinton to fire on Bin Laden when the Clinton administation had him right in thier sites, sits behind Colon Powell at the United Nations while Powell went on and on about evidence we had AND EVERYBODY ELSE SEEMED TO HAVE about Iraq and WMD and NEVER said a word that it might be wrong before they even went to the UN, (Which there are still questions as to how wrong this information ever was) and now writes a book about (What?) FAULTY INTELLIGENCE in THIS administration? Let us not forget who hired this peach, BILL CLINTON! President Bush did make a mistake, HE DIDNT FIRE TENET UPON ENTERING OFFICE. Please!! George Tenet no body is listening to you anymore. And who is going to profit off this book? George Tenet.

There were many more reasons we went to Iraq (UN Resolution 1441) (Iraq Liberation Act) among MANY other reasons, and we are all glad Saddam is gone and are rooting for our Troops to git 'er done, but seriously George Tenet is an Idiot.

Remember Tenent was appointed by Clinton who had Sandy Burglar steal from the National Archives to cover the Clinton butt. So an appointee will blame someone else as he learned from the expert!

Realconservative here. It won't let me log in. Anyway.

Why are you citing UN Resolutions as a reason to go into Iraq when Conservatives have never even wanted to be in the UN, let alone send it's troops off b/c of it?

Because like it or not we pay for the UN and they sit on our soil. I dont like that we have to deal with the UN but we do.

If they move elsewhere I will quit quoting them I should say use thier resolutions (Well not the resolutions made on US soil) but as long as they are on US soil, we all have to deal with them.

And as long as I pay for thier worthless asses I can use thier terminology and resolutions as I please.

And the Iraq Liberation Act wasnt part of the UN, Willie Wanka made that one law.

Another great post!! George Tenet is an idiot. And yes, the only thing I'm upset with Bush over is his stupid "new tone" that motivated him to leave all the Clinton holdovers in place. HUGE MISTAKE!! One no Republican should ever make again!!

Little Miss,

Oh how things would be different if Bush had have fired every single one of the Clinton leftovers upon entering office!

Let's hope our next Republican President does the same thing. Even though the people Bush "appointed" are very good people, every new administration needs a whole new team!
