Why, That Would Be As Silly As If Reno Kept Her Job After Waco
Watching CIA director George Tenet testify before the Senate this morning, I have to admit I’d forgotten how impressive the man can be. Forthright, commanding, sensible. But his agency still screwed the pooch 9/11, and the buck is supposed to stop at his desk. He really should have resigned as soon as the dust settled, no pun intended.
When the troops see the boss isn’t accountable, how is any top-down reform supposed to be implemented? It might be arguable that Tenet should keep his job, but it cannot be rationally argued that no changes are needed at the CIA.
