Meet The Press, May 6, 2007
Russert: Slam-Dunk how are you this morning
Tenet: thats not my name
Tim: Should I call you Slammy?
Tenet: I prefer Mr. Dunk
Tim: ok Dunky Cheney sez Bush invaded Iraq because you told him to
Tenet: we believed Saddam had teh weapons and we were wrong - but Bush would have invaded anyway
Timmy: that may be true but you weren't the pizza delivery boy
Tenet: No that was Andy Card
Timmy: you were teh head of the CIA!
Tenet: dood Bush wasn't skeptical one minute and a believer the next you're being snowed yet again
Tim: Dunk-man why were you helping to market the war?
Tenet: i had to be there every step of the way to prevent the white house from lying and manipulating the intelligence the Powell speech the White House wrote was full of lies
Russert: Slammy, you thought the war was quote crazy - did you crazy like a "wow a crazy-good idea" or ‘crazy’ like “whoa dood this Bush guy is craaaaazy?”
Slam Dunk: i thought it was a bad idea but i didn't have strong feelings about it - if i had said anything i would been dwelling the realm of policy and what do i know - its not like i was the PR man for a baseball team
Russert: so 3,300 americans dead, middle east civil war, 100,000 iraqis dead, US national security in peril….
Tenet: i'm not a hero here
Tim: so Slammy, Cheney was going around lying
Tenet: well u should really read my book - but yeah that was my fault
Tim: But Dunk everyone was lying
Tenet: i'm not perfect
Tim: they said we know where the weapons are
Salmmy: i was very busy that week i was trying to lose weight and American Idol was having a good season
Russert: mushroom cloud?
Dunky: i thought Bush was ordering a pizza
Russert: r u an enabler
Tenet: well they aren't very able, so no
Timmy: u got everything wrong
Tenet: was everything right? no
Timmy: nice pink tie - message?
SlamDunk: im coming out
Slam: no just anti-Bush - its very cathartic
Timmster: British sez we fixed intelligence and lied about al-qaeda
Slam-Dunk: true but in our subconscious we didn't think that - that was only what I wrote in an official letter to Congress
Russert: Your report deceived the American people
TenetSlam: i didn't cook the books i would say rather we served the lies cold like that Klingon proverb
Tim: Blaming Saddam for 9/11
Tenet: hey i told Bush and Cheney that was crap what am i supposed to do - have them mouths taped shut
Tim: dood that would have helped
Slammy: i took the 16 words out of a Bush speech and they kept getting put back in
Tim: in Cinncinati
Tenet: it was my fault i never read or saw Bush's state of the union speech - i was the designated cabinet member to watch the 'Friends' finale that night
Rusert: where did the Niger thing come from?
Slam Dunk: i have no idea but it rhymes with Chick Deney
Tim: Colin Powell lied
Tenet: yeah i let him down
Russert: let me read preemptively from a letter sent to us from Richard Perle which we never usually do except for neocon nuts
Russert: dood i got the day wrong but Perle is still crazy
Timmeh: June of 2001 - Osama is about to attack
Temeh: July of 2001 briefer sez ‘they're coming here’
Slam Dunk: it had no texture
Timmeh: words like "spectacular", ‘bin laden determined to attack’….
Dunk: yeah I remember that summer teh Yankess and Sox were in a tight race
Tim: u rode in Bush's pickup truck - did the subject of terror ever come up
Slammy: you can go back a look and say we could have done more really it's Bil Clinton's fault
Tim: But Bill Clinton stopped attacks
Slammy: see that's what i talking about he makes us all look bad by being so successful
Russert: Franks, Bremer, Tenet all got the medal of Medal of Freedom - that’s a trifecta of stupid
Slam: i will not give it back - i got it on behalf of other people
Russert: terrorists with nukes?
Salm: we should move heaven & earth
Russert: except for AQ Kahn
Rusert: do u even know what day it is?
Dunk: Sept 12
Timmeh: dood we’re done
