Richard Clarke, President Bush’s former top counter-terrorism, officially sliced up the Administration’s pre-9/11 terrorism policy on the 60 Minutes program last night. Apparently, the White House refused to take seriously the urgent pleas of the Clinton people to get serious about al Queda. And, just for good measure, Clarke grated the President to pieces on the Iraq agenda. As Clark reports, Bush personally directed him to tie Iraq to al Queda.
With the bad economy, the WMD mess and it’s erosion of our European support, and now the damaging facts pouring out of the 9/11 inquiry, we can be sure the Bush attack machine will be going with its sharpest blade.
