George Tenet's book is coming

And the word is BushCo won't be pleased. From Al Kamen at WaPo:

The drums have begun sounding for the long-awaited book by former CIA director George Tenet, in which he gives his take on pre-9/11 days and on Saddam's huge cache of weapons of mass destruction.

And the drums are saying that Tenet is not going to get too many Christmas cards from Vice President Cheney's office after they read "At the Center of the Storm." Folks from down the river at the Pentagon, including former deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfowitz-- a guy who's already going through a rough patch -- and former defense undersecretary Douglas Feith, might also get some heartburn.

Former secretary of state Colin Powell comes out fine. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who was President Bush's key adviser in engineering the Iraq invasion, doesn't come out so fine. Not fine at all.

I'm looking forward to the April 29 60 Minutes spot.

Hope there's an entire chapter on the now infamous August 6th, 2001 PDB that Bush and his inner circle at the Crawford, TX pig farm couldn't be bothered with.

For the uninitiated, it warned of an attack on American targets by radical Islamics using commercial airliners like bombs.

The events that unfolded that hidious day gave Bush his Reichstag.
