Naval War College Review


John R. Arpin


George Tenet’s tenure as Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) was marked throughout by controversy, so it is no surprise that his memoirs face more of the same. Partisans will never be satis- fied; policy and national security insid- ers, regardless of their depth on the inside, will find areas with which to dis- agree; historians will decry the lack of citations; and individuals who helped to create some of that history will be glad for that lack.
