Former CIA Chief Goes Back to School
Tue Oct 19, 2004 05:18 PM ET

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former CIA Director George Tenet after resigning as spymaster this summer has returned to his alma mater, Georgetown University, as a professor in diplomacy.
Tenet was appointed to a three-year term as distinguished professor in the practice of diplomacy at the university's School of Foreign Service, from which he graduated in 1976.

He will lecture and meet with faculty and students during the current academic year, but will not begin teaching until Fall 2005, the university said.

Georgetown University was the venue for Tenet's speech in February in which he publicly defended intelligence agencies against growing criticism. But he acknowledged that prewar estimates on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction had not been supported by postwar evidence.

Asked whether Tenet would engage in the longtime practice of professors recruiting for the CIA on campuses, his spokesman Bill Harlow replied: "I'm sure he will provide career guidance to students who are interested in public service."

Since leaving the CIA in July, Tenet has been giving private paid speeches and plans to have a book published next year.

Will it tell all? "You're just going to have to wait and see," Harlow said.
