Why was George Tenet so emotional?
Like you, I am always surprised when middle-aged public figures suddenly announce a new-found and sappy devotion to family, particularly "the children." George Tenet, with tears in his eyes, held a surprise news conference to announce he was leaving CIA to spend time with his family. If that were true, why the tears? Why not a smiling face at the thought of cotton candy at the zoo, baseball in the back yard, and driving across our great country in a packed SUV?
Could it be that Tenet is worried about being indicted in the outing of Ambassador Joseph Wilson's wife? Someone told Robert Novak that she worked under cover for the CIA. Isn't it likely that the administration needs a fall guy and Tenet was the last one to sit down while musical chairs was played at the White House? And who was fooled by Ahmed Chalabi--the Iranian double agent?
A prediction: Dick Cheney will not run for vice president in 2004. He had to know.
