Trying to earn that Freedom Medal ?

George Tenet agreed to take the fall on bad Iraq intelligence provided it was cushioned with a medal of freedom. Now he is leaking to Murray Waas. In his very excellent article on what Bush new and how he lied, Murray Waas seems to have a very interesting source

But the one-page summary, several senior government officials said in interviews, was written specifically for Bush, was handed to the president by then-CIA Director George Tenet, and was read in Tenet's presence.

Now I suppose it is theoretically possible that this was reported by some third person who was also there (would be Rice or Cheney and like fat chance). I have never been director of central intelligence, but I am not stupid, and I think that Tenet is not only talking but also wants it made clear that he is talking.
