This is straight from Wonkette. It weird that this guy has presided over huge intelligence failures on Sept 11 and Iraq (WMD) and he still has a job.
George Tenet’s Predictive Powers
Page 116-17: Months before the war begins, Tenet assures Iraq’s top Kurdish leaders that the U.S. military will attack the Baathist regime. Bush has issued no such order, but Tenet proves right. As Woodward puts it, “He would sell fucking tea to Chinamen to make sure his officers got protection.”
Page 186-87: Bush cites a CIA report that says 71 percent of the French population sees Saddam as a “threat to world peace.” The report is bogus—the French vigorously oppose the war.
Page 247-49: At a December 2002 briefing, Tenet’s deputy makes the case that Iraq is harboring weapons of mass destruction. Bush says, “I’ve been told all this intelligence about having WMD and this is the best we’ve got?” Tenet raises his arms and says, “Don’t worry, it’s a slam-dunk!” To date, no WMD have been found in Iraq.
Page 387-99: On March 19, 2003, Tenet informs Bush of CIA reports that suggest Saddam and his sons are hiding out on an Iraqi farm. Later, after an airstrike ordered by the president, Tenet says, “Tell the president we got the son of a bitch.” Saddam and his sons survive the attack.
