The other shoe drops at the CIA


WASHINGTON, Aug. 25 - A long-awaited C.I.A. inspector general's report on the agency's performance before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks includes detailed criticism of more than a dozen former and current agency officials, aiming its sharpest language at George J. Tenet, the former director, according to a former intelligence officer who was briefed on the findings and another government official who has seen the report.

Mr. Tenet is censured for failing to develop and carry out a strategic plan to take on Al Qaeda in the years before 2001, even after he wrote in a 1998 memo to intelligence agencies that "we are at war" with it, they said, speaking about the highly classified report on condition of anonymity.

Wait a minute, wait a minute, didn't that guy Tenet get a FUCKING MEDAL?

You know, George "slam-dunk" Tenet?

Although if you look closely, the medal says "For Meritorious Ass-Kissing and Sword-Falling."
