Pathetic George Tenet Rebuked By BOTH Right & Left
What can be more pathetic than someone in public life being rebuked by BOTH the Right and the Left? When it was announced that former CIA Director, George Tenet, would be speaking out against the Bush Administration, I figured he would be immediately embraced by the Leftwing types who always hail those who attack the EVIL Bush Regime. However, I completely underestimated how pathetic and whining Tenet would be. On top of that he has ZERO credibility in whatever he says. An example was Tenet's account of a supposed conversation he had with Richard Perle on the day after 9/11. Problem was that Perle was stuck in Europe on 9/11 and couldn't return to the USA until September 15, 2001. As a result of Tenet's lack of credibility and whining performances, both the DUmmies and the HUffington Post HUffies look upon him with disgust as you can see in this HUffie POST authored by Arianna herself titled, "Why Didn't George Tenet Just Resign?" So let us now watch sniveling George Tenet laid low by the HUffies in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, noting that Tenet is a DEMOCRAT, is in the [brackets]:
Why Didn't George Tenet Just Resign?
[Why did George Bush retain a pathetic DEMOCRAT holdover as CIA director?]
Does this sound familiar? A senior Bush administration official plays a key role in selling the Iraq war debacle to the American public, resigns a few years later, and then tries to distance himself from Bush and the war by writing a book or talking to Bob Woodward, portraying himself as a poor, hapless victim who knew the truth at the time and really, really wanted to tell it, but, somehow, just had no choice but to go along.
[All those turncoat officials were embraced by the Left. This is what George Tenet was hoping for but his excuses were so pathetic that even the Leftwingers are now rejecting him.]
What else could he do?
Each version of this contemptible tale shares the same fatal flaw. It requires that the remedy that was readily available -- resignation -- did not exist.
[Just as it didn't exist for Janet Reno.]
The latest to trod this pathetic path is George Tenet.
[DEMOCRAT George Tenet.]
Poor George Tenet. Flogging his book, At the Center of the Storm: My Years at the CIA, on 60 Minutes, Tenet tells Scott Pelley about how his phrase "slam dunk" was misused by the Bush administration. Tenet, you see, didn't mean it was a "slam dunk" that Hussein actually had WMD, he only meant it was a "slam dunk" that a public case could be made that Hussein had WMD.
[A distinction without a difference.]
I can't really see that the distinction matters, but Tenet apparently does. "I became campaign talk," Tenet tells Pelley, "I was a talking point. 'Look at what the idiot told us, and we decided to go to war.' Well, let's not be so disingenuous. Let's stand up. This is why we did it. This is why, this is how we did it. And let's tell, let's everybody tell the truth."
[Look at what pathetic excuses the idiot is telling us now.]
Great -- except he's about four years too late. Tenet seems to believe there's a major distinction between lying and standing by silently while others lie, and then proudly receiving a Medal of Freedom from the liars.
[Except the others weren't lying. They were relying on Tenet's intelligence which wasn't great.]
He could have simply resigned and freed himself to "tell the truth." Tenet acts as if resignation were not an option. But it was. And the passion and anger he displays now in the service of book sales could have been used then in the service of his country.
[If the fairy tale that Tenet laid out were true, then he was beyond pathetic for not resigning.]
"It's the most despicable thing I've ever heard in my life," Tenet tells Pelley. "You don't do this... You're gonna throw somebody overboard just because it's a deflection? Is that honorable? It's not honorable to me."
[What Tenet is saying here is the most pathetic thing I have ever heard in my life.]
The problem is, the honorable train left the station a long time ago, and Tenet wasn't on board.
[Janet Reno should have boarded that same train. And now to hear from Zsa-Zsa's fellow HUffies...]
According to the Tenet interview tonight on 60 minutes, Richard Perle to George Tenet the day after 9/11, "Iraq is going to pay for this". Neocon Perle had Iraq in his sights, so did Bush/Cheney/Rice. It didn't matter whether they had WMD's, although I think Cheney fiddled with the WMD issue at the CIA.
[According to the FACTS, "neocon" Richard Perle was in Europe until 9/15. So much for Tenet's credibility.]
Does that jackass Tenet somehow imagine he presents a sympathetic feature, coming across as he did on 60 Minutes? Where do these sons of bitches breed?
[Originally in the Clinton Administration.]
Great stuff as usual from Arianna. Now I want to propose that this site begin covering the story from over at democraticunderground that there is now proof that the vote count in Ohio in 04' was rigged and the official count was pirated by a server out of Tennessee that was closely affiliated with the RNC. The new 'count' was then made in the mysterious 90 minute interruption at midnight when supposedly the Ohio server went down with Kerry leading with a commanding 4 percent of the vote.
[Don't forget to hand Arianna a fashionable looking tinfoil hat.]
Tenet seems to believe that just showing up and putting in the hours is all that should be expected of the head of the CIA. He wants credit for good attendance to suffice for the whole grade. That attitude must have filtered down throughout the CIA under his leadership, since Tenet is very eager to defend his agency's tepid performance and mealymouthed acceptance of responsibility.
[Tenet, along with DEMOCRAT Valerie Plame should have been fired from the CIA on the day Bush entered office.]
I was struck by how emotionally unhinged Tenet was in the interview. I would never hire someone to a position of responsibility after an interview like that. The cocky bluster, blaming and whining, "listen to me, listen to what I'm saying!" Yeesh.
[Unfortunately Bush decided to retain an unhinged DEMOCRAT as the head of the CIA.]
He's a self-centered little worm of a man who probably actually believes he has earned that Medal of Freedom.
[The self-centered little worm squirmed.]
Sorry Mr Tenet, but you don't get a come-to-Jesus moment. This is a go-to-hell moment.
[Also a flack-the-book moment.]
On 60 Minutes, George Tenet came off as an arrogant, self-pitying ass with no clue or concern whatsoever about anything but his own reputation.
[I have never seen anybody publicly sink himself more quickly.]
While watching Tenet I had the feeling that I had tuned in on a replay of the Caine Mutiny Court Martial, with Queeg sweating and rolling the steel balls in his hand as he babbled and searched for rational understanding of the stolen strawberry crime.
[Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I'd have produced that key if they hadn't of pulled the Caine out of action. I, I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officers...]
As we say in Greek, Tenet is a real malaka.
[Is "malaka" Greek for "maccaca?"]
I wish bloggers would tone down their attacks on former Loyal Bushies who have repented of their formerly evil ways and have then written about it. Without them we might never know the full story of the disaster that is this war and administration. The last thing we want is for them to retreat into their bunkers and under a cone of silence. Grant them at least conditional forgiveness so we can learn what the hell they were thinking.
[Sorry. Turncoat Tenet's is such a lowlife weasel that he turns off even the Left that he is trying to play up to.]
After watching Tenet on 60 Minutes, I did/you may have gotten the impression that he's batshit crazy.
[Just plain NUTS!!!]
Have you ever been at the beach and seen a really hot looking chick? Most likely all you will end up doing is just stare at her, drooling like an idiot. If you try to talk to her you will probably embarrass yourself with your clumsy pickup lines. Well, GOOD NEWS! I now have a product guaranteed to make it EASY to pick up lots of hot looking women at the beach. It is a product I have been using myself and fully endorse: the amazing HELICOPTER KITE. This helicopter kite flies like a helicopter. You can make it go hundreds of feet into the air or hover it just a couple of feet off the ground. The propellor rotation is done entirely by windpower. So how does this help you pick up chicks? Simple. Just hover this helicopter kite a few feet off the ground near the hot beach chick of your choice. In most cases they will be overcome with curiosity and come over to YOU to ask about it. I've run a little experiment on this and it works on about 75% of the women (catch and release in my case since I'm married). My advice is to keep the conversation initially focused on the helicopter kite until you can later make a sneaky segue into asking her out for dinner. From that point on, you're on your own. Please check out the VIDEO of the INCREDIBLE helicopter kite. Not only was the helicopter kite aerodynamically designed but it is also MADE IN THE USA! So feel good about purchasing an AMERICAN MADE toy which makes the perfect method for vastly enhancing your social life. The helicopter kites have a LIFETIME warranty so all defective or broken parts will be replaced. Your purchase of the helicopter kite will not only provide you with lots of hot dates but it will also help keep the DUmmie FUnnies going. So take a look at the VIDEO and be AMAZED! Remember, those hot beach chicks are waiting!
p.s. Check out what one of our happy customers had to SAY about the amazing helicopter kite.
