Tenet's resignation and Thank you to all the WW2 vets
I am writing this post from beautiful (and record setting hot) Grand Junction CO. I spent this past weekend camping out at CO National Monument. I heard of Ronald Reagan's passing yesterday and it is indeed a sad day for our country. I was nine years old when Reagan left office and do not recall if I had an opinion of him. If you have read any of this you know that I am a Democrat, but I have a lot of respect for what the man stood for and how he led with a smile.
Somethng fishy is going on at the CIA. Why now for Tenet to resign? Why not in the wake of 9-11? Why not in WMD controversy? Why not over Chalabi's boy "Curvebali?" Did the neocon / Chalabi connection finally become the straw that broke George's back. I may be in the minority but I liked Tenet. I felt like he did the best he could with the orders that he was handed. When Sec Def Rumsfeld told him to find people that knew where the WMDs were..... well he tried. I wish that it was Wolfowitz though.
If any of you get a chance listen to "This American Life" on NPR, it is with Private contractors in Iraq. Quite an enlightening show.
One last thing being that today is D-Day Thank a vet. The greatest generation is going fast.
Well until we meet again.....
