TENET: IRAQ WAR “WRONG”….Hmmm. George Tenet is (barely) beginning to speak out about the Iraq war. The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph-Benton Harbor, Michigan, reports that he thinks it was a mistake:
Tenet called the war on Iraq “wrong” in a speech Wednesday night to 2,000 members of The Economic Club of Southwestern Michigan at Lake Michigan College’s Mendel Center. He did not elaborate.
….He did add that he doesn’t think the Iraq war was wholly bad. “When I look at the regime (Saddam Hussein) ran, and the elaborate depth he took to deny us the ability to build our intelligence, I can’t say it was a waste,” Tenet said.
It would sure be nice to get him to elaborate on this sometime before the election, wouldn’t it?
