Arianna Nails Tenet

After watching George Tenet's interview hawking his new book last night on 60 minutes - I've been too angry to formulate an articulate response. Then I read Arianna Huffington's post today - and she says everything I wanted to say. Here is a snip:

Tenet seems to believe there's a major distinction between lying and standing by silently while others lie, and then proudly receiving a Medal of Freedom from the liars.

He could have simply resigned and freed himself to "tell the truth." Tenet acts as if resignation were not an option. But it was. And the passion and anger he displays now in the service of book sales could have been used then in the service of his country.

  1. I like Larry Johnson's response too! His suggestion is that Tenet should donate the proceeds from the sale of his book to the families of those killed or wounded in Iraq!

    If it's fair for OJ's book, it's only fair for Tenet's!
