"That's wrong. Big time wrong; you don't get to do that. And the chilling effect that you have inside my work force is 'Whoa, now officers' names are being thrown out the door. Hold it. Not right.'" Asked how much damage had been done, he replied: "That's not the point. Just because there's a Washington bloodletting game going on here and just because her husband's out there saying what he's saying. The country's intelligence officers are not fair game. Period. That's all you need to know."</p><p>In a May 1 AP interview, Tenet called for the United States to revive Palestinian-Israeli peace talks as part of a broad regional diplomatic effort to resolve the Iraq crisis. He said that the U.S. needs to use its enormous political, diplomatic and economic strength to resolved the crisis in the region, and that discussions about Iraq need to be broadened to consider the entire region.</p></div></body>
