51. The future or the fall of Tenet is where they want everyone to focus...
If there is truth to a few things we know and can surmise ...

It is very obvious that Rumsfeld and friends want to control their own intelligence and his talk of having an official military intelligence is probably an announcement of what he already has. He may want to get a congressional blessing for it so that they don't have to launder so much money. The Rumsfeld gang may have been quite UNsuccessful in getting the CIA (Tenet) to bend to their will or do what they wanted in sufficient secrecy.

In addition, Rumsfeld didn't have to have linguists and spies because he had Chalabi and his friends. He only had to direct his money to one operative - saves time. An intelligence dept of convenience.

The theory is premised on the fact that Rumsfeld, Cheney, Wolfkowitz, Perle, Bennett, Kristol, etc. the Iraq war is six + years in the planning - documented in the public letter to Clinton in 1998.

Tenet may not have had enough opportunity to move in any direction. He may have pushed the pursuit of bin Laden too pointedly for their agenda.

If they can get Tenet to take the fall they will have less attention on themselves and will have another chance to 'officialize' a military intelligence.

In no way are they going to let Ashcroft take a fall.

Woodward will save Cheney, Rumsfeld and gang.

Bush may not be salvageable along with Tenet.
