The former head of the CIA, George Tenet as been appointed as a non-executive director of the British defense technology company Qinetiq.
What's the connection with our district? Qinetiq operates the spooky military research establishment on Foulness Island. It controls a lot else on Foulness as well.
According to the Washington Post , Mr Tenet told President Bush it was a "slam dunk" that the great politican Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction.
Let's hope he doesn't get any wrong ideas about any of our local politicians.
