Nebraska Sen. Chuck Hagel says George Tenet did not need to resign as head of the CIA.

Hagel says very few members of Congress called for the resignation despite accusations and controversy over terrorism and Iraq issues.

The Nebraska Republican said yesterday that Tenet did not purposely mislead the nation when he advised the administration on purported weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

Hagel says what Tenet said was based on information and analysis the CIA and the entire intelligence community gave him.

Hagel says the intelligence business is imprecise and imperfect. But, he says, Tenet was locked into a situation over which he had no control. He says to saddle Tenet with all the blame is misleading.
