George Tenet: A Man Without A Friend

A group of former intelligence officers have taken George Tenet to task, describing him in an open letter as

the Alberto Gonzales of the intelligence community—a grotesque mixture of incompetence and sycophancy shielded by a genial personality.
In other words, just another typical Bill Clinton appointee.
Most importantly and tragically, you failed to meet your obligations to the people of the United States. Instead of resigning in protest, when it could have made a difference in the public debate, you remained silent and allowed the Bush Administration to cite your participation in these deliberations to justify their decision to go to war.

Although I disagree with the writers' take on the war itself, it is easy to share their very low opinion of another man, like so many today, who wishes to stand on both sides of the tide of history.

Poor Mr. Tenet, no respect from any quarter, normally the fate of cowards, moral or otherwise.

Villainous Company has much more.
UPDATE: If you lose Sister Toldjah and Christopher Hitchens on the same day, you're toast.
