George Tenet

Clearly you can't trust what Tenet says about the U.S. Government tricking us into war with Iraq; after all he helped trick us into war with Iraq. Or such would seem to be an underlying message in Alen Reynolds latest article.
If the former CIA director can't be held accountable for issuing an amateurish CIA report on WMD in Iraq, who can? White House officials may have wanted to invade Iraq anyway, as Tenet says, but the WMD hoax is what allowed them to do it.
I should point out at this point that Cheney and the Pentagon had set up their own intelligence agency to manufacture information on Iraq, because they were frustrated at the slow progress of the CIA.

Most of his article is about biological weapons and how it would actually be very difficult to make biological weapons work. Bombs are apparently more effective.
