Clinton administration diplomatic troubleshooter Mansoor Ijaz charged Monday that one-time White House terrorism czar Richard Clarke blocked his efforts to have Osama bin Laden extradited from the Sudan to the United States five years before the 9/11 attacks.
"In each case of things that were involved in the Clinton administration, Richard Clarke himself stepped in and blocked the efforts that were being made over and over and over again."
Ijaz said that if Clarke hadn't put up roadblocks to obtaining Sudanese intelligence, the bombing of two U.S. embassies in East Africa in 1998 might have been prevented.
He called Clarke's account of the Sudanese episode "absolutely disingenuous; it comes very close to flat-out lying."

Regardless of what you think of Clark, Bush, Fox News or anything else...
Fox News just pulled tapes from their archives that catch Clark in huge lies in his book.
His credibility just went to a big fat zero....

If you didn't see Clarke's testimony in real-time here's the link to the cspan video. I think it's obvious proof that the Bushies didn't plan 911. All of the cover-ups and conspiracy theories are explained away in a few simple hours that boil down to they didn't know what the hell they were doing.

First of all why did you put all those damn returns in your message. It is a HUGE pain the ass.
Second, why didn't they shoot down the planes? Are you freakin serious? Do you know what you are saying? Before that day hijackings meant ransom or a bomb on a plane, not flying them into a building. So imagine if you will that out of the 4,000 planes in the air that day they did know they were hijacked, can you seriously think anyone would order an attack on planes full of innocent americans? No, times were different. You would assume they would blow the plane up or land it somewhere and demand prisoner releases.
