George Tenet Comes Out

Former CIA Director George Tenet has followed the normal path of former Bush Administration Officials. He has written a book in which he revealed that the President and his henchmen were planning to invade Iraq long before 9/11 and that he hates Dick Cheney. So what else is new?

Anyone who hasn't figured out that the Bushies were planning to invade Iraq from day one probably also still believes that Saddam had WMD's and a connection to AL Qaeda. After "Fiasco", "State of Denial", and Richard Clarke's book "Against All Enemies" I think its pretty clear that any reasonable person with a brain who had in depth contact with the Bush Whitehouse and a smidgen of ethics has to scream out loud that these people are really bad news.

The problem I have with Tenet is the same one I have with Colin Powell. These men should have known better and either spoke up, walked away, or both when the Neocons were leading us down the path to destruction. Dick Cheney is a psychopathic killer and George Bush has the IQ of a head of lettuce, they have an excuse. However, both Powell and Tenet knew better and waited until we drove off a cliff to pipe up and tell us that there was a sign saying "bridge out ahead". Gee thanks guys, its nice to know NOW!! that we are dealing with liars and thieves! Maybe you coulda got that info to us a tad bit earlier. I don't know, maybe prior to the biggest strategic blunder in US history would have been good?

Oh well, better late than never I guess. Now its time for Congress to call these guys in to testify and get some orange jump suits prepared for President Cheney and his faculty. If these guys don't end up in jail then there is no justice in the United States.
