George Tenet Is A Weasel

If you've seen the various interviews (and confused apologies for) with George Tenet making the rounds on TV, maybe you've been struck by an unexplainable lack of knowledge for the head of the CIA to have. And, come to think of it, a strange lack of knowledge for journalists to have.

He has a tendency, during virtually every interview I've seen, to insist one way or another that the information he had on Iraq was insufficient, and therefore he believed that Iraq possessed WMDs.
Which completely ignores the fact that the United Nations had been doing weapons inspections there since 1991. He would have us believe that he had insufficient information on a country he was at war with 12 years earlier and has been virtually at the center of the world's attention ever since. Insufficient information on a country with one of the largest oil reserves in the world, strategically located in an area of geopolitical importance.

Right. You're an incompetent boob.

Or you're a liar.

The rest of the US press has previously proven that their memories go no further back than 6 days, but the worst part is that not even John Stewart can muster the mental muscle to make any sort of connection between history and reality.
