George Tenet's Book Absolves George Tenet
The long, slow roll-out of George Tenet's self-serving, Cheney-trashing book/60 Minutes appearance continues with the requisite Times advance copy-based front page story.
The critics say:
* "A devastating judgment!" -- New York Times
* "Bitter!" -- New York Times
* "Accusatory, defensive, and modestly self-critical!" -- New York Times
Oh, here are the shocking revelations from the book: Bush is genial and well-intentioned, torture and extraordinary rendition are totally justified, Colin Powell is a nice guy, the "slam dunk" line was totally out of context, Dick Cheney is a dick, Paul Wolfowitz is a dick, Doug Feith is the dumbest fucking guy on the planet, Condoleezza Rice is a dick, he really had to think long and hard about accepting that medal, and Stephen Hadley is a dick.
