This should be very interesting to watch, I think Tenet will have a lot to say.
Oversight Committee Invites Former CIA Director to Testify

The Honorable George Tenet
c/o Robert B. Barnett, Esq.
Williams & Connolly LLP
725 Twelfth Street, NW
Washington, DC 20005
Dear Mr. Tenet:
I am writing to invite you to testify at a hearing of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on May 10, 2007, at 10:00 a.m. in Room
2157, Rayburn House Office Building. The purpose of the hearing is to learn your views about one of the claims used to justify the war in Iraq — the
assertion that Iraq sought to import uranium from Niger — and related issues.
On Wednesday the Oversight Committee approved a subpoena for testimony from Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice regarding the assertion that Iraq
sought to import uranium from Niger. A New York Times article today discusses how Mr. Tenet addresses the issue in his book:
Ex-C.I.A. Chief, in Book, Assails Cheney on Iraq
Scott Shane and Mark Mazzetti, New York Times - April 27, 2007
Mr. Tenet hints at some score-settling in the book. He describes in particular the extraordinary tension between him and Condoleezza Rice, then
national security adviser, and her deputy, Stephen J. Hadley, in internal debate over how the president came to say erroneously in his 2003 State of
the Union address that Iraq was seeking uranium in Africa.
