George Tenet Says "Slam Dunk" Statement Just Part Of The Game

Washington, D.C. - George Tenet, former director of the CIA, states in his new book that the phrase he is most famous for, "slam dunk," was taken out of context. Mr. Tenet used the basketball term, "slam dunk," prior to the invasion of Iraq to describe the ease with which the US could win the conflict.

"I did use 'slam dunk'," Mr. Tenet explained, "but I meant after a rebound, or maybe a bank shot or two. I knew there would be some blocking by the insurgent team. I knew there would be some technical fouls. I figured there'd be a little elbowing, you know? But then, after that, later in the game, it would be a 'slam dunk'."

When asked about his support for the president's equally famous "mission accomplished" statement of May 2, 2003, four years ago, Mr. Tenet shrugged. "Sometimes you go into overtime. It happens."
