George Tenet / Ron Jeremy
Long before former CIA Director George Tenet helped enable the Iraq War with his infamous statement that the case for weapons of mass destruction was a "slam dunk," he was an overachieving student at Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Bayside, New York.
One of his fellow players on the Cardozo soccer team was none other than Ronnie Hyatt, better known by his nom de porn, Ron Jeremy. Jeremy recalled his high school relationship with Tenet to TMZ in 2007 thusly: "We didn't speak much, and didn't have much in common..."
Since stepping down from his seven-year term as head of the CIA in 2004, Mr. Tenet has received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, written a memoir, and is now the managing director of the investment bank, Allen & Company. Ron Jeremy, on the other hand, has honored his alma mater by being listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for "Most Appearances in Adult Films."
