On the Chief Spook:

Effective July 11th, that description will no longer be part of George Tenet's title. I've got to hand it to the guy. He's had a thankless job for seven years. All his successes are classified at the highest level. His failures are plastered on the front pages of newspapers across the globe. He heads an Agency blamed for many of the evils in the world, but the very fundamentals of the Agency's existence prevent it from defending itself.

That's the murky world of the Intel business. In the end, I guess that's as it should be.

You will hear and read much of Tenet in the coming days. Some will be truth. Some will be lies. Still more will be outright damn fabrications. Its up to you to learn the difference. I take some comfort in the address he gave his fellow spooks today. Read it here.

I especially like the last sentence.

As Dick Helms used to say, let's get on with it and get back to work.

Can't argue with that.
