President Thanks CIA

Remarks by the President to Employees of the CIA

Langley, Virginia

1:23 PM EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all very much. Well, George (Tenet), thank you very much, and thanks for inviting me back. (Laughter.) There is no question that I am in the hall of patriots, and I've come to say a couple of things to you.

First, thank you for your hard work. You know, George and I have been spending a lot of quality time together. (Laughter.)

There's a reason. I've got a lot of confidence in him, and I've got a lot of confidence in the CIA. (Applause.)

And so should America.

HA HA HA we get the oil!! ... we did it, yeah we are so proud!!

Meyer is to be congratulated for calling attention to the Bush-CIA
celebration of the 9/11 attacks. But that isn't the only evidence that
Bush and top CIA officials were overjoyed, not disturbed, by 9/11. Griffin
notes Rumsfeld's unseemly crowing and military-moneygrubbing on the
evening of 9/11 itself (The New Pearl Harbor, 99-100). But it gets worse.
The preface of veteran Middle East CIA agent Robert Baer's 2002 book See
No Evil ends on an astonishing note: "The other day a reporter friend told
me that one of the highest-ranking CIA officials had said to him, off the
record, that when the dust finally clears, Americans will see that
September 11 was a triumph for the intelligence community, not a failure."
And in the October 6th, 2005 New York Times, a ex-top CIA official claims
that the intelligence community's handling of 9/11 was not a failure, but
something "good, positive, extraordinary." See:
