George Tenet has resigned as Director of the CIA.

Should have been done on September 12th, 2001, according to Mark Steyn.
The decay of the ruthless regime-topplers of the 1970s into a bunch of desk-jockeys watching television and monitoring e-mails from outer space is the result of a remorseless quarter-century emasculation at the hands of Congressional Democrats.

And if you think Steyn's just crooked on the intelligence establishment, read him on Hollywood and the war on terror.
We've been in the new war now for almost three years, and, unlike Donald Duck and Bogey and Bergman, and Eleanor Powell tapping her patriotic heart now, Hollywood has absolutely nothing to say on the subject, except for a couple of Michael Moore crockumentaries.
