George Tenet: Former CIA Director; Page 520 of his book: At the Center of the Storm

I had difficulty making the purchase of George Tenet's new book. With a multi-million dollar advance already, I didn't want to contribute to someone who has already profited so obscenely from other people's dead children.

BARBARA'S DAILY BUZZFLASH MINUTE

For God’s sake, RESIGN already! The anti-poverty clause in the World Bank’s mission does not mean personal enrichment for you and your girlfriend, Wolfie! It does not mean advancing your personal finances! Paul Wolfowitz is an embarrassment and it’s way past time for him to hang it up. “Read my lips,” RESIGN!
