Ray McGovern On George Tenet's Surprise Resignation
This is an interesting analysis though I caution you to sort fact and conjecture. The element I found most important:
"...US law actually, dated 1996 which makes it a crime punishable by death to rescind from or to ignore or to exempt people from the Geneva Conventions on prisoners of war."
This was in the context of Mr. Bush engaging a private attorney yesterday, just prior to Tenet's "Surprise Resignation". The assumption is then that this is desperation, and so deep that "I am more frightened now than at any time over the last three and a half years, that this administration will resort to extra-legal methods to do something to ensure that there are four more years for George Bush."
