Tenet's Two Dumbest Words

Slam Dunk

That's how former CIA Director George Tenet characterized (to President Bush back in 2002) his evidence supporting the notion that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction. As we (once again) learned this week, there apparently were no Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. "Those were the two dumbest words I ever said" he told an audience in Kutztown, Pennsylvania last Wednesday.

Also notable are Mr. Tenet's thoughts regarding support for the CIA in the years before 9-11. "The atrophy was tremendous... We were nearly bankrupt", though he denies the CIA's assesment was developed for political reasons.
