Up was down, black was white, good was bad!

The New York Times, October 31, 2005:

Mr. Bush’s aides portray themselves as victims in this case, battered by conflicting intelligence and ill served by the head of the C.I.A. at the time, George J. Tenet. Mr. Tenet, they argue, did not convey to the White House doubts he had about the validity of the charge.

George J. Tenet. Where have we heard that name before? Oh yeah. George Bush, December 14, 2004:

The Presidential Medal of Freedom is our nation’s highest civil award given to men and women of exceptional merit, integrity and achievement. Today this honor goes to three men who have played pivotal roles in great events, and whose efforts have made our country more secure and advanced the cause of human liberty. […]

Early in his tenure as DCI, George Tenet was one of the first to recognize and address the growing threat to America from radical terrorist networks. Immediately after the attacks of September the 11th, George was ready with a plan to strike back at al Qaeda and to topple the Taliban.

Well, must have been bizarro George that got that Medal of Freedom.

Man, they threw Tenet under the bus. If he weren’t such a moron, I’d say he write a damning tell-all.


Next thing you know, they’ll be blaming the paper and ink used to create the intelligence reports.


It was realised later that the words “PS This is a crock of shit” were written very clearly at the bottom of each page in red ink. Sadly, it was that special kind of red ink that fades easily. And new evidence shows that it was George Tenet who left the newly-minted pages on a sunny window-sill.
