Ex-DCI, Greek-American Trojan Horse George Tenet: sodomized by his own lies, cowardness and betrayal to the American people and the CIA
Bill Clinton,  himself a CIA asset, appointed Tenet, a garrulous, narcissistic, egregiously “incompetent” senate staffer to become the Director of the CIA from July 1997 to July 2004 [Bush/Cheney administration].  The fact that Tenet was bereft of any formal training in statecraft and only had less than impressive credentials from the CIA recruiting school –Georgetown University—somehow qualified him to become the Director of the CIA--once the bastion of Yale, WASP tenure and OSS legacies.
Unlike many of us,  who had trained under a far more intensive CIA sponsored MIT School of Political Science/International Relationship and gritty ‘field experience’ under duress and different crises situations,  Tenet was the Greek Comedic version of the Tragedian Fool--- effete; ‘sucker up’ that climbed the greasy pole of CIA politics.

He in turn anointed another somewhat “effete” high-pitched voiced,  Irish Catholic toady, whom by now we all know for his false OBL raid, and Benghazi coup against Gen. Petraeus—none other than, Choirboy John Brennan; another non-covert operative selection.
It seems that most incompetent US Presidents who know very little about the real CIA are afraid to pick a William Colby or Richard Helms; both distinguished DDOs—covert operatives –to become the Director of the CIA [DCI]. 
Well now with time and perseverance, you, the American public, have finally succeeded in forcing Madame Diane Feinstein [D-Calif],  Chairman of the Senate Foreign Intelligence Committee to ‘investigate’ and ‘possibly‘ indict Tenet,  J. Cofer Black [Director of Counter Terrorism in the CIA] as well as two hundred other CIA operatives “for lying to the senate about their non existent torture program” as well as “hacking into the senate staffer’s computers to change the outcome of this major senate investigation into the CIA torture program.”
Just when all of us were about to give up hope that no one would be asked about the CIA contrived 9/11 stand down and subsequent expansive bullshit terrorism war,   Diane Feinstein suddenly pops up and says, not so fast CIA!
The July 25, 2014 article in the NY Times, by Mark Mazzeti, entitled “Ex-Chief of C. I. A Shapes Response to Detention Report”,  has thoroughly examined how this Greco-American bootlicker,  George Tenet,  beset by cowardly self-preservation instincts after he ordered the cold blooded assassination of 3000 innocent Americans in the World Trade Center and then proceeded to facilitate the slaughter of two thousand more Americans in the ersatz Iraq War, is now running scared.  Yet this guy Tenet who made up the false intel to justify the invasion into Iraq is trying to intimidate the senate, white house and his former colleagues in the CIA to dismiss any possible charges of willful murder. 
Clearly, America, TENET  is culpable for what he had done in 9/11 in addition to falsifying the intelligence reports of WMDs in Iraq at the behest of Bush/Cheney.  But , like all COWARDS who have killed innocent American PEOPLE en masse,  he was decorated by the equally culpable Bush Jr and then received countless offers to enrich himself at the expense of the American taxpayer---including serving with Palantir Technologies a  silicon-valley creation which went public then private.

Important: Americans continue to demand that our legislators investigate the CIA and other so-called ‘secret agencies’ like the NSA,  we can find some very interesting facts about our tax funded, bloated government agencies.

For example, let me quote from the following sections of the article:
[1] “Over the past several months, Mr. Tenet  ENGINEERED A COUNTERATTACK AGAINST THE SENATE COMMITTEE’S VOLUMINOUS REPORT [my emphasis], which could become public next month.  THE EFFORT TO DISCREDIT THE REPORT HAS SET UP A THREE-WAY SHOWDOWN AMONG C. I. A officials who BELIEVE HISTORY HAS BEEN DISTORTED [sure!! My comment and emphasis]…. A white house carefully managing the process and politics of declassifying the document, and Senate Democrats CONVINCED THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION IS TRYING TO PROTECT THE CIA AT ALL COSTS [my emphasis].
Folks, as I have mentioned numerous times before in former blogs,  I have pinpointed OBAMA as a clear CIA asset or even officer having worked for the CIA cut-out agencies—Geithner’s ASIA Business Council,  Rockefeller Group et al.
[2] The report is expected to “ACCUSE TENET and FORMER CIA OFFICIAL OF MISLEADING CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE ABOUT THE PROGRAM AND ITS EFFECTIVENESS”… and folks here is the Sword that cuts the Gordian Knot—“but it is Mr Tenet who might have the most at stake” [no shit!]
[3] “And Tenet [who refused to be interviewed for this article; normally he has “diarrhea of the mouth”] IS RELYING ON HIS CLOSE relationship with Mr Brennan to keep him “apprised”  [ a fancy word for ‘changing and deep sixing’] as the report moves through a glacial declassification process.

BTW so not only do we get this Greek fool in as a CIA culprit but then Bush Jr [along with brother Jeb’s approval] anoints two other losers—Porter J. Goss [Yale] and Gen Michael Hayden as CIA Directors.   In time,  we will all eventually extract the carcasses of the culprits of 9/11 and the Iraq/Afghanistan Wars.  But it will take time, patience and hard work.
“While former CIA officials may be working to hide their own past wrongs,  there is no reason BRENNAN OR ANY OTHER CURRENT CIA official should help FACILITATE THE DEFENSE OF THE INDEFENSIBLE”,  said Christopher Anders, senior legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union.
Amen !

Senator John Walsh:  A Democrat from Montana and a Major Disgrace to:
[1] The US Military [2]  US Army War College, Carlisle, Penn. [3] U.S Code Of Honor [4]  U.S. Senate  [5] Montana and finally, [6] Democratic Party.
NY Times skewered the Montana Democratic Senator for lying his whole life as a military officer,  statesman and Adjutant General of the Montana National Guard.  The article (posted earlier) brilliantly explains, in meticulous detail, just how much plagiarism John Walsh committed throughout his 30 military history.  He was promoted up the ranks based on his Master’s Degree from the U.S. Army War College, for which he wrote a ‘brilliant thesis’.  Needless to say this so-called ‘brilliant thesis’ was ‘completely plagiarized’ by John Walsh, a sad excuse of a Army Colonel.
Senator John Walsh climbed up through the political and National Guard system not on his merits but rather on his ability to continuously plagiarize other people’s work.  He obtained a promotion to “Adjutant General of the Montana National Guard” and then gets appointed to replace Max Baucus as U.S. Senator. 
Why can I condemn this man so vehemently?
For the simple reasons that as a veteran;  a former yearly lecturer at the National War College at Ft McNair, Wash. D.C for over twenty years;  an ex-resident of Bozeman, MT;  as well as someone who knew and admired Sen. Max Baucus,  I find John Walsh to be a complete DISGRACE to everything that I value—honor; military service;  integrity [both personal and professional]; and legislative representation.
How did John Walsh get away with such sociopathy?
He is by history and habit a cowardly individual who when confronted with his ‘plagiarism’ resorted to the most pathetic excuse possible:
His aid responded: ”Mr. Walsh had been going through a difficult period of time when he wrote the paper….one of the members of his unit in Iraq had committed suicide in 2007, weeks before his assignment is due….”  With no concern for the truth or INTEGRITY,  this aid offers this improbable scenario where the poor, pathetic, psychologically damaged Walsh was able to plagiarize in detail all 14 pages of his thesis!  Talk about the old PTSD made me do it! WOW!!

I have heard a lot of different diagnoses for PTSD.
But PLAGIARISM as an outcome of PTSD??  I am giving the ‘Bullshitter’ Walsh the benefit of the doubt here—this is a new neurological/psychiatric phenomenon.  On the other hand, when I step back a moment, why shouldn’t the Democrats have equal representation in the senate in the ‘flaming sociopath’ category?  John Walsh can join Dianne Feinstein and Ted Cruz,  Marco Rubio,  who inhabit the Senate and force us Americans to pay ridiculous taxes for their collective well-being.  Remember we pay these members of the Sociopathic Party a minimum of $174K annually with close to a $1M in staff support and don’t forget those retirement and health benefits!  
Now, let’s wait to see what happens.
Thank you NYTimes for dissecting in egregious detail the stupidity, venality and ignoble behavior of one of MONTANA’S WORST!!! 
Thanks on behalf of a grateful nation.

The Melrose Café:  The Legacy of a Quiet American Hero-Dale Bassett [1939-2014]!
On Florida State Road 21,  spanning the wooded, water-logged acres between the Metropolis of Gainesville, Florida [home to the Univ. Of Florida] and Keystone Heights, there is an unobtrusive building with an obtrusive sign announcing the day’s menu of “Pork Chops”,  the Melrose Café resides as the center meeting place for the denizens of an unincorporated town of Melrose.
Nothing really distinguishes the town from any other place in Central Florida,  other than the fact that it has no official body of governance; no police station; and no fire department.  In many ways,  one could consider Melrose a Libertarian paradigm of excellence; or equally valid, the Liberals’ dream of complete freedom and social acquiescence. In either case,  the Melrose Café was the de rigeur meeting place for those who held all types of political views,  as long as they expressed them civilly; and those  hard-core Red Necks who valued their suped-up Ford Pick-up-trucks with their fanciful gun-racks.  In other words,  Melrose Café was a representation of America.
The only requirement to order the meal of the day was the ability to understand that grits would accompany any meal and that the waitresses could be very polite until you might have thought for a slight moment that you could cop an ‘attitude’.  Then all-hell would break out.
The man who created this oasis of Americana was Dale Bassett,  along with his charming wife of fifty years, Carol.  Both had ventured into the American entrepreneurial world many decades before when Dale, a Jacksonville, Florida native,  decided to sell his successful insurance brokerage house and present his wife Carol with the realization of her long- time dream: a café that both could run in their senior years.  The dream came true.
Yet like all American dreams,  first uttered in a moment of passion,  it took years of hard work, sweat, and tears to make this forty person café an established institution to which the cynical,  Libertarian/Liberal denizens of Melrose would frequent on a daily basis.  Let it be known up front that Dale understood that with limited resources,  he could  at best,  serve only breakfast and lunch.  On special occasions,  he might venture to offer another meal, but that was infrequent.
From my narrow perspective of acquaintance,  I met Dale and his wife, Carol, about one year ago when I first moved into Melrose.  I discovered the town thanks to the misadventures of a pig, named Francis, whom my wife transported to Rooterville,  a pig sanctuary.
I came to know Dale,  as best as one could know the “Quiet American”,  as he and Carol were perusing their daily accounts over a table near the front of the café.  I suggested in a half-sarcastic way that ‘numbers lie and liars use numbers’.  Dale agreed.  He assured me that he understood the nature of numbers and what they truly represented as he assured me that in his former life he had been an insurance underwriter for all types of businesses,  especially medical practices.  Whether his comment was fortuitous or calculated,  to this day I have no idea why,  but I immediately engaged in a discussion where I explained my previous travail with medical insurance when I had practiced psychiatry.  And before you could annunciate the DSM IV criteria for  sanity and sobriety,  Dale expounded on his experience with one of his clients, a practicing psychiatrist who had garnered over three million dollars a year in revenues.  I was astounded.  I had explained to Dale that at 45 minutes a therapeutic session,  it was hard for me to conceive of how anyone could make that kind of money on what he and I agreed was essentially ‘bullshit’.
From that day onward,  we would engage in sporadic conversations ranging from world events to the problems of running a small business, replete with personnel, taxes, and cash flow issues.  For the most part,  the conversations to an outsider listening in to what we had to say to each other,  may have appeared ‘mundane’.  But to me, a serial entrepreneur,  Dale had exemplified the best and brightest of America---the small business owner.
Dale had taken a risk to make a dream come true.  He earned his way in the business of food and service, not through going to the Cornell School Of Hotel Management, but through ‘trial and error’.  I would see him and Carol bent over the end-of-the-days’ receipts discussing where he could or could not save a penny here or there.  He was the epitome of what I considered the best of America –the small business owner – who on a regular basis persevered through the trials and tribulations of daily problems of running any type of business: inadequate, inappropriate staffing; change in menus; maintaining consistent quality control so that the customers would come back, again and again.  He did not run a ‘fast-food franchise’.  He didn’t use gimmicks,  his food was consistent.  He created what on the surface appeared to be the most of all mundane creations—a cafe,  really a ersatz diner , serving only breakfast and lunch.
In a time when the cauldron of history is boiling over with wars and conflagrations all over the world, the Melrose Café, on Route 21,  is a  sanctuary of sanity and reality.
I go there every day with my two dogs, Bonnie and Basel, my wife, not to eat my three hard boiled eggs with ketchup, but to talk to the “Quiet American”, my hero.  He died last week. But his wife, Carol, and his younger son, Michael will continue the traditions of maintaining a small business in Melrose, Florida. 
I salute you,  Dale,  on behalf of all we Americans who have to fight the inglorious battles of quotidian life, day in and day out.
My Quiet American Hero,  Dale Bassett!
