The Briefer

ROEMER: You don't see the president of the United States once in the month of August?

TENET: He's in Texas and I'm either here or on leave for some of that time, so I'm not here.

ROEMER: So who's briefing him on the PDBs?

TENET: The briefer, himself. We have a presidential briefer.

ROEMER: But you never get on the phone or in any kind of conference with him to talk at this level of high chatter and huge warnings during the spring and summer to talk to him through the whole month of August?

TENET: We talked to him directly throughout the spring and early summer almost every day.

ROEMER: But not in August?

TENET: In this time period, I'm not talking to him, no.

TENET: I don't have a recollection of being called, Mr. Roemer. But I'm sure that if I wanted to make a phone call because I had my hair on fire, I would have picked up the phone and talked to the president.

ROEMER: It was just never made.


So, is a presidential briefer like a pornstar fluffer?

Don't Speak - (We Have) No Doubt

You and me
We used to be together
Every day together always

I really feel
I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe
This could be the end

It looks as though you're letting go
And if it's real,
Well I don't want to know

Don't speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts (my brain)

Don't speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need your reasons
Don't tell me 'cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
But some are altogether
Mighty frightening [no shit]

As we die, both you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

You and me
I can see us dying ... are we?

It's all ending
I gotta stop pretending who we are...
