“When Republican congressmen attacked [CIA director George] Tenet in the days after 9/11, [President] Bush swiftly came to his aid. ‘We cannot be second-guessing our team,’ the President told a group of angry congressmen aboard Air Force One on September 27 [2001], ‘and I’m not going to. The nation’s at war. We need to encourage Congress to frankly leave the man alone. Tenet’s doing a good job. And if he’s not, blame me, not him.’ ”
