Dear George

Suck it up you sniveling wuss. You made your bed with the hyenas, so don’t complain about getting bitten by them or their fleas.

George Tenet is out hustling his book with complaints that the Shrubbery doesn’t play fair.

George, your complaint about your reputation is garbage:

Good name in man and woman, dear my lord,
Is the immediate jewel of their souls:
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’t is something, nothing;
’T was mine, ’t is his, and has been slave to thousands;
But he that filches from me my good name
Robs me of that which not enriches him
And makes me poor indeed.

Iago speaking to Othello in Act III, Scene III of Othello

You are just as big a creep as Iago. You were free to resign; you didn’t have to accept the Medal of Freedom; you didn’t have to wait until you were selling a book to speak out. You made no real effort to combat the misinformation campaign, so don’t come around sucking up to the people who were right. You were the Director of Central Intelligence. If you had cried foul, you would have been listened to. You couldn’t make the effort to stop the insanity, so live with your guilt for what your silence has wrought.

I agree wholeheartedly. Tenet sold out. I hope his book ends up in the bargain bin.

I resent the fact he keeps his pension. Like generals, there needs to be some accountability.

Completely OT, Rostropovich has died at age 80 in Moscow. I thought you might want to know.

I’ve been listening to his cello on the local NPR station all day, Steve. Putin did a bit of Soviet era propaganda mongering by awarding Rostropovich the Order of the Fatherland, First Class, yesterday. I’ve finally put up a post.
