WASHINGTON: George Tenet, the former head of the Central Intelligence Agency, recognized the danger posed by Al Qaeda well before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but failed to adequately prepare the CIA to meet the threat, according to an internal agency report that was released in summary form Tuesday.

The problems at the CIA are much bigger than one man.
No argument with that vacuous statement -- as it stands.

Burger and Tenet ! No wonder !!!
Strange there is no mention of DCI’s boss in this report!
Tenet is just the tip of the iceberg...
What’s worse if Bush’s father once ran the CIA and should have known better.
I just find it amusing that the CIA creates a “report” to blame its incompetence on its ex-leader like that’s all there was to it...
I do have to disagree that it was “vacuous” statement though...
