From Washington Post Associate Editor Robert G. Kaiser’s chat session:
Q: How long will it take Director Tenet to write a book, joining the likes of Paul O’Neill and Richard Clarke?
Robert G. Kaiser : Many questions like this this morning. I don’t think there is any chance that Tenet can write a book that could be out before the election. For one important thing, anything he writes will have to be cleared by the CIA, under an agreement he and all CIA employees have to sign. So don’t expect a blockbuster from him any time soon.
If and when he does write a book, I suspect its purpose will be to defend himself. It could be a long book.And he does share one other insider tidbit.
Q: Who gains from this resignation?
Robert G. Kaiser : Mrs. Tenet, a very nice lady
