From their website:

McLaughlin has access to all the satellite photos, and he goes in and he has flip charts in the oval office. The president listens to all of this and McLaughlin's done. And, and the president kind of, as he's inclined to do, says Nice try, but that isn't gonna sell Joe Public. That isn't gonna convince Joe Public, says Woodward.

In his book, Woodward writes: "The presentation was a flop. The photos were not gripping. The intercepts were less than compelling. And then George Bush turns to George Tenet and says, 'This is the best we've got?'"

It is not entirely clear if Tenant means selling the story is a slam dunk or that they will find WMD's is a slam dunk, but above was the context.
