Jon Stewart to interview George Tenet on Tuesday

Did anyone read Maureen Dowd's second Tenet piece this week:

Instead of George Tenet teaching at Georgetown University, George Tenet should be taught at Georgetown University.

There should be a course on government called “The Ultimate Staff Guy.” A morality saga about how much harm you can do as a go-along, get-along guy, spending so much time trying not to alienate the big cheese so he doesn’t can you that you miss the moment where you have to can him or lose your soul.

If Colin Powell and George Tenet had walked out of the administration in February 2003 instead of working together on that tainted U.N. speech making the bogus case for war, they might have turned everything around. They might have saved the lives and limbs of all those brave U.S. kids and innocent Iraqis, not to mention our world standing and national security.

...

Thus endeth the lesson in our class on “The Ultimate Staff Guy.” If you have something deadly important to say, say it when it matters, or just shut up and slink off.

George Tenet will be on The Daily Show on Tuesday. If you saw Jon's interview with John McCain, then you know he's on his game. Let's see him take the CIA intelligence chief from 9-11 to task... Popcorn at my house!

Thanks for the heads up, Jeff. Isn't it a sad commentary when the most astute political coverage in the commercial media is on a comedy channel?
