TODAY THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION ANNOUNCED THAT IT WAS BECOMING HARDER TO TREAT GONORRHEA.
REACHED FOR COMMENT, SOCIAL MENACE AND CLOSET CASE DONNA BRAZILE INSISTED, "IT WAS RUSSIA! THEY HAVE HACKED MY VAGINA!"
ALWAYS ONE TO SECOND ANYTHING CRAZY, TUBBY FILM MAKER MICHAEL MOORE ADDED, "DONNA'S CORRECT! IT WAS RUSSIA! I KNOW BECAUSE THEY HACKED MY VAGINA TOO!"
FROM THE TCI WIRE:
The Iraq War was built and based on lies.
And yet so many idiots step forward today convinced they can re-write history.
Take this hysterical opponent of Donald Trump's:
#FACT The CIA NEVER said there were WMD in Iraq, that was the Whitehouse who LIED, Bush lied. So Trumps lying 2 times. We know its Russia!!!
Bush turned to Tenet. “I’ve been told all this intelligence about having WMD and this is the best we’ve got?”
From the end of one of the couches in the Oval Office, Tenet rose up, threw his arms in the air. “It’s a slam dunk case!” the DCI said.
Bush pressed, “George, how confident are you?”
Tenet, a basketball fan who attended as many home games of his alma mater Georgetown as possible, leaned forward and threw his arms up again. “Don’t worry, it’s a slam dunk!”
That's from Bob Woodward's PLAN OF ATTACK.
Who was Tenet?
Al Kamen (WASHINGTON POST):
Former CIA director George Tenet will likely never live down having called the intelligence on Saddam Hussein’s WMD a “slam dunk.”
But former CIA deputy director Mike Morell, in his book, “The Great War of Our Time,” defends Tenet.
“When we wrote pieces for the president, the analysts wrote with authority on the [weapons of mass destruction] issue,” Morell writes. “This is why I personally never found fault with George Tenet’s alleged “slam dunk” comment.”
“The way the [intelligence] analysts talked and wrote about their judgments,” Morell adds, “would have led anyone to think it was a slam dunk— that is, that Saddam definitely had active WMD programs. No one ever said to me, [agency analyst Jami] Miscik, [ex-director John] McLaughlin, Tenet, [Condoleezza] Rice, or the president, ‘You know, there is a chance he might not have them.’ Such a statement would have gotten everyone’s attention,” Morell writes.
From 60 MINUTES:
Still, at CIA headquarters, Tenet's team was about to make a historic blunder of its own. The CIA produced its evaluation of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in a secret report called a "National Intelligence Estimate."
"The first key judgment in the national intelligence estimate says, quote, 'Baghdad has chemical and biological weapons.' Period," Pelley says.
"High confidence judgment," Tenet replies.
How could he make such a bold statement? Says Tenet, "We believed he had chemical and biological weapons."
"But there was no hard evidence," Pelley remarks.
"No, no. There was lots of data. There's lots of technical data," Tenet says. "So you put all of this together, it's not evidence in the court of law. Remember, when you write an estimate, when you estimate, you're writing what you don't know. You might win a civil case. Huh? You're not gonna win a criminal case, in terms of evidence."
"We are going to war. Tens of thousands of people are going to be killed. And you're telling me you had evidence to prove a civil case, not a criminal case?" Pelley asks,
"Well, as you know, hindsight is perfect. The public face on this what we wrote on weapons of mass destruction and for professionals, who pride themselves on being right, this is a very painful experience for us," Tenet acknowledges.
Now what did the Tweet say again? "FACT, The CIA NEVER said there were WMD in Iraq, that was thee Whitehouse who LIED, Bush lied."
Bully Boy Bush is a liar -- and a War Criminal. That does not change the fact that Tenet and Morell -- top two at the CIA -- in their own words say and said that Iraq had WMD.
I'm sorry that you're so shrill and hysterical but that does not give you the right to re-write history.
I also have to wonder about his followers.
No one gave him a heads up?
