WASHINGTON, May 16th---President Bush was expected to sign detailed plans for a worldwide war against al-Qaida two days before Sept. 11 but did not have the chance before terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, U.S. and foreign sources told NBC News.
And in a "60 Minutes" interview set to air Sunday night, Clarke blasts Bush for doing "a terrible job on the war against terrorism."
But just a year ago Clarke was singing a different tune, telling reporter Richard Miniter, author of the book "Losing bin Laden," that it was the Clinton administration - not team Bush - that had dropped the ball on bin Laden.
Clarke, who was a primary source for Miniter's book, detailed a meeting of top Clinton officials in the wake of al-Qaida's attack on the USS Cole in Yemen.
He urged them to take immediate military action. But his advice found no takers.
Are you saying that we can't point out the faults of the "current" leader without pointing out the past leaders either? I guess we could go all the way back to the Roman days and point the mistakes their leaders made as well, so that we can show no agenda eh?
perplexing tar-like anomalies abound regarding 9-11 that won't wash off. While George W. Bush runs campaign ads with 9-11 images in the background and has flip-flopped on his assertion he wouldn't answer the 9-11 commission's questions for more than an hour, even though he devoted two to three hours to filming an ad, and while talk radio demagogue Rush Limbaugh falsely accuses some 9-11 family members as receiving political funding from Teresa Heinz-Kerry, it would be profitable to note some of the oddities of 9-11 that scream out and wave for attention like shipwreck survivors on an island.
