16. Bush admin blamed for intel failures
DEMOCRATIC presidential contender John Kerry said today, after the resignation of CIA director George Tenet, that the US administration should take responsibility for the "significant intelligence failures" under Tenet.

Kerry said in a statement that the US intelligence services had to be reformed and a new director of national intelligence post created to oversee all agencies.

Kerry added: "This is an opportunity for the president to lead. As I've said for some time, we must reshape our intelligence community for the 21st century and create a new position of 'director of national intelligence' with real control of all intelligence personnel and budgets."

Kerry had already called for Tenet to stand down because of controversies over Iraq intelligence and the September 11, 2001 attacks.
