Tenet Lets It Slip: There Are Tapes

by Steve

Well, after seeing what Tony caught just now from Hesiod over at Counterspin Central, it appears today that we had our first Watergate moment. While Tenet was making it clear to Commissioner Tim Roemer that it is the National Security Council that has responsibility for taking all available intelligence and fashioning each administration's counter-terror policies, Tenet let it come out that there are transcripts and tapes of what is discussed in these meetings.


Now it goes without saying that an administration which has stonewalled the release of Cheney's energy task force meeting notes and other material will not release tapes of meetings far more important that that.

But that doesn't mean the 9/11 victims' families and members of Congress shouldn't be demanding them anyway. If the Bush Administration is so certain that they did everything possible with the intelligence they had, and that they acted on what Clarke and Tenet gave them, there should be no problem with releasing this information, right?
