WASHINGTON (Reuters) - CIA (news - web sites) Director George Tenet, under fire for his agency's intelligence lapses in Iraq (news - web sites), resigned and will leave in July, the Bush administration announced on Thursday.

President Bush (news - web sites) said Tenet submitted his letter of resignation on Wednesday night at the White House and told the president he would leave his post for personal reasons.

"He has done a superb job on behalf of the American people. I accepted his letter," Bush told reporters as he was leaving the White House to begin a trip to Italy and France.

Tenet will continue as CIA director until mid-July, when his deputy John McLaughlin will become acting director.
