George Tenet's new book

I have not and will not read this new book. Mr. George "have it both ways" Tenet appears to see his post 9/11 and pre-iraq war as quite virtuous. Christopher Hitchen's has a little review at Slate worth the read. Here is his summary conclusion:

A highly irritating expression in Washington has it that "hindsight is always 20-20." Would that it were so. History is not a matter of hindsight and is not, in fact, always written by the victors. In this case, a bogus history is being offered by a real loser whose hindsight is cockeyed and who had no foresight at all.
