That "slam dunk" revisited

As the Washington Post reports:

"Former CIA director George J. Tenet bitterly complains in a forthcoming television interview that White House officials set him up as a scapegoat when they revealed that he had assured President Bush the intelligence on Iraq's suspected weapons arsenal was a "slam dunk."

Now it seems that Tenet, for whatever motive, is prepared to unload about George Bush and his White House in a bbok about to be released:

"In the book, he writes that Vice President Dick Cheney and other officials developed the case for war without "serious debate" about whether Iraq posed a threat to the United States, the New York Times reported today after buying an advance copy of the work.

"There was never a serious debate that I know of within the administration about the imminence of the Iraqi threat," Tenet writes."

So, who is this George Tenet? NPR provides a profile of the man from its program, All Things Considered.
