Notes on the Atrocities
Like a 100-watt radio station, broadcasting to the dozens...

The Times has a screamer headline (but no more info) on its web page reading:

George Tenet Resigns as C.I.A. Chief, President Bush Announces

[Update (7:45): CNN just posted a bit more information.

In a statement made at the White House, Bush said that Tenet informed him of his decision Wednesday night. Bush said Tenet had done "a superb job for the American people."

"He has been a strong and able leader at the agency," Bush said. "He has been a strong leader in the war on terror and I will miss him." Tenet will leave the position in mid-July Bush said.]

[Update (9:40): Tenet is stepping down in mid-July, which can only mean he's trying to dodge a scandal. If there were any other reason, he'd oversee a far lengthier transition. This may be the scandal: ""Linda Douglass reports that according to two senior sources familiar with the Senate Intelligence Committee's report on pre-war intelligence failures yet to be released, findings are "devastating" for Tenet."]
