“On February 5, 2004, [CIA Director George] Tenet gave a speech at Georgetown University on ‘something important to our nation and central to our future: how the United States intelligence community evaluated Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction programs.’ He had two main points to make: U.S. intelligence had not gotten it all wrong and the CIA had not distorted its findings to enable a White House hellbent on war. …Tenet was implicitly saying, We did our job; if you don’t like the results, talk to the White House.”
