Firing Tenet

Rick – I agree. John O’Sullivan had a good piece about the need to fire folks after Pearl Harbor. I don’t know if Tenet deserved to be fired or not. My guess is he didn’t. But Bush should have cleaned house as much as possible and put in a team with no incentives to whitewash the past. He could have done this in a very statesmanlike way, finding nice face-saving jobs for some and kind words for others. But the one thing that comes through remarkably clearly from these hearings is that the bureaucracy could use some creative destruction.
