    Long a Target Over Faulty Iraq Intelligence, Ex-C.I.A. Chief Prepares to Return Fire

    [​IMG]


    By MARK MAZZETTI and JULIE BOSMAN
    Published: February 13, 2007

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 12 _ — For the past two years, George J. Tenet has maintained a determined silence even as senior White House officials have laid the blame for the prewar mistakes about Saddam Hussein on him. But now Mr. Tenet, the nation’s former spy chief, is preparing to return fire.

    Mr. Tenet was awarded a Presidential Medal of Freedom at a grand White House ceremony in December 2004, after stepping down as director of central intelligence, only to have Vice President Dick Cheney appear on “Meet the Press” 21 months later and pin the mistake about the Iraq intelligence squarely on him.

    Now, as he races to complete a memoir due out this spring, the talk in Washington has turned to how Mr. Tenet, known for fierce loyalty and political survival instincts that enabled him to weather both Democratic and Republican administrations, will use the book to juggle a host of agendas: polishing his legacy, settling scores and explaining just what he meant when he said it was a “slam dunk” that Mr. Hussein had unconventional weapons.

    Of course, Mr. Tenet must finish the book first, which has proved to be something of challenge. The book was supposed to hit shelves last week, but Mr. Tenet was still writing as late as last month. The book has also undergone a slow vetting process at the White House and the C.I.A., which reviewed it to ensure it did not contain classified information.

    What's with everyone making terrible decisions, and then writing a book saying they were forced to? Whatever happened to principles and accountability? Why are people appointed, or elected into positions of importance, if they are uncapable of making principled decisions? Everyone passes the buck in this country, and it's kinda sad. If more people stuck to their convictions, my guess is that the people would be far better served. Instead, we get party over principle, dollar over dignity, and selfishness as opposed to selflessness.

    :(

    Because in this country, admitting mistakes as a leader makes people lose respect for you. It's twisted I know, but people would rather believe in a fake, infallible image than a real person.

    If he goes gunning for Cheney this will be good.

    Yes, I think we understand now.... Bush Administration lies and frauds the country into war, everyone should just let bygones be bygones and keep silent on "principle." Clinton lies about oral sex, and it remains the rallying cry around which all neocons begin their prayers...

    reviewing this thread, reply No. 1 had a bit of substance from a righty... unfortunately, that was the last and only one... as is typically the case, when CON men have virtually nothing to say, they corrode and distort a topic into something else...

    There's not much point in that. Y'all have made it clear that you will permit no intelligent conversation in this thread. On the bright side, Real World has been kind enough to come up with some new images to crap all over the threads he doesn't like. The fraud alert light he threw up every other post for a while there was a bit repetitive.
