Wave of bad news for Bush-Cheney

We’re reaching a high point in the wave of bad news for the Bush-Cheney administration, and the 60 Minutes interview with George Tenet must be a big part of it. He sounds really mad at the White House, and he’s barely started on a marathon of interviews. Too bad he was in charge of the two biggest intelligence failures ever, or he’d appear more sympathetic.

It runs long, and the second half is the best. “I became a talking point …Men of honor don’t do this … Slam dunk … Washington blood-letting game … Intelligence officers being thrown out the door … ”

And the best was: “Let’s stand up and tell everybody why we did it” – No, Tenet, you don't have that kind of people in this White House, they never are honest and open.

Have you heard about HR 333? I urge you and your readers to take a few minutes to look at:

It's a list of the 25 most recent comments made by real Americans participating in an online poll/letter-writing campaign concerning the impeachment charges recently filed against Vice President Cheney, which are now being evaluated by the House Judiciary Committee. Comments can be sent to elected representatives and local newspapers at your option. The participation page is at:

Since this campaign began, three members of Congress have signed on as co-sponsors, in part due to hearing from their constituents. Make your voice heard, and let others know!
