senior CIA officer, lashed out at the panel that investigated the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. He called the panel and the CIA “bureaucratic cowards” for not holding an agency or individuals accountable for the tragedy. His invective was particularly critical of former CIA director George Tenet, saying he “starved and is starving the [Osama] bin Laden unit of officers while finding plenty of officers to staff his personal public relations office, as well as the staffs that handled diversity, multiculturalism, and employee newsletters.” Scheuer also wrote a best-selling book, Imperial Hubris, published anonymously, that criticized President Bush's war on terror.
