Grounds For Dismissal

There is so much crap flyin' around about Tenet's revelations and proof(?) of stuff we already knew that it's hard to pick good shit to post, but I like the heck out of this one at BuzzFlash:

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Face The Nation dismissed accusations made by former CIA Director George Tenet about the Bush administration's early decisions on Iraq and Afghanistan: "We can't tolerate any present or past member of the administration, even the head of the CIA, telling the truth. That is a violation of the terms of employment in the Bush Administration." (Okay, BuzzFlash made the quotation up.)

Made it up? More like read her mind! Or her e-mails...

The sorta funny part about this is that Tenet ostensibly wrote his book to try and get himself off the hook, but I think it's just diggin' him into a deeper hole, of the "Oh fucking swell, now you tell us, where were you when it coulda done some good" variety.

Then there's the $4 million advance and the $50K per speaking engagement, but of course I'm sure that had nothing to do with it. Heh. I think his whole book tour should be under oath.
