Tenet: No 'Serious Debate' Before Iraq Invasion

Former Central Intelligence Agency director George Tenet has written a new book about his time at the agency during the Sept. 11 attacks. Tenet writes that in the lead up to the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the Bush administration never held a "serious debate" about the true threat Saddam Hussein posed. New York Times reporter Scott Shane has seen Tenet's book and discusses it with host Alex Chadwick.
