And when 43 came in, Clarke was demoted from his cabinet-level position. Gee, wonder why the lamestream never mentions that little fact.

I pulled out my old copy of Bob Woodward's book, Bush at War which accounted the months after 9-11 and Clarke's name is not mentioned once in the book. (At least not listed in the index).

I'm not sure what that means, but since Woodward claims he had unfettered access to anyone he wanted to talk to, it appears that Clarke was not near the top of anyone's VIP list.

Clarke offered a chillingly prescient quote from one aide who agreed with him about Clinton administration inaction. "What's it going to take to get them to hit al Qaeda in Afghanistan? Does al Qaeda have to attack the Pentagon?" said the dismayed Clintonista...

Wow...how many pieces of silver have the clintonoids promised this traitor to cover up THEIR failures?

"He's always very excited about one thing or another, but it rarely seems that his breathless predictions come true."


If you recall, he was the one talking about Pakistans' "Father of the Islamic bomb" selling nuclear secrets to other countries MONTHS before anyone else said a word about it.

I think the guy has a lot of credibility.

Drudge: The Sunday Times has established that after a fierce internal row about the sincerity of the offer, the White House responded by sending Richard Clarke, Clinton's most senior counterterrorism adviser, to meet the rulers of the United Arab Emirates. They denied there was any such offer. Ijaz, however, maintained that the White House had thereby destroyed the deal, which was to have been arranged only through unofficial channels. Ijaz said that weeks later on a return trip to the Gulf he was taken on a late-night ride into the desert by his contact who told him that Clarke's front-door approach had upset a delicate internal balance and blown the deal. "Your government has missed a major opportunity," he recalls being told.

OTOH, perhaps this jackass's presence in the administration isn't fatal to the President, but only to the 'rat Party...Bush is seen by the electorate as a fair, fine leader during wartime. The 'rats (including those he allowed to remain) are falling on their swords trying to wipe him out, but are not being received very well.

At least it is a thought....

Now it is getting clear. You can reread your post slowly and get a sense of what is wrong with this picture.

Here is what I get from your post. Mansoor is a Moslem Pakistani-American. He has an "investment" management company that employs the ex-CIA director? What is the CIA chief knows about investment? Why the investment company is called Crescent, a symbol of Islam? Are James Woosley, and Abrahmson (both known for their Neo-cons political views) connected to Islamic investments, or money laundering of funds to Islamic organizations?

That is essentially the reasons that the Saudis funded the Al Qaeda, and Egypt provided Zawahri and his hate ideologies, and Pakistan provided international network, and arm shipments, and the US is unable to get its arms around this monster. Simply because of lots of ex-big shots are on the take from the Saudis. This big banana republic of ours will never get its politics right because its politicians never think of AMERICA FIRST. One time we had a politician, who kept drumming that slogan, and you remember what happened to him? Both parties, and the Washington establishment ran him out of town; he has big ears, and he was short, and he speaks with an accent, he quit the race, and came back again, he worried about his daughter wedding….

I hadn't considered that, but I forgot the missile attack when Monica was going to testify, etc. Yeh, it is certainly plausible. I have noticed that Clintonites come out of the woodwork every few months in attempts to rewrite history and revise the Clinton legacy. That is definitely a pattern.

The 911 Commission isn't taking Mansoor Ijaz's testimony?

I hate to say this...but what if the Clinton Administration set up the Bush Administration from the get-go?

What if...they not only encouraged the 911 terrorist
attack, but also put evidence (and people) in place that would make Bush look bad when he took action?

Both the FBI and the CIA still have Clinton Cronies in
top positions... What if these cronies set up Bush by giving him information that set us up for war, and after
the war, they now "present evidence" against him?

Clinton got rid of everyone, even those beyond the travel office.

That seems to be the MO for the Rats. Here in NM in 2003, new Governor Richardson fired (aka "demanded resignation letters from") every non-civil service employee in every department and division, every member of every board and commission (from hairdressers to professional engineers), every judicial oversight board (until the judges stepped in), and every member of the boards of regents at state schools and universities. The excuse given was so that he could shape state government to better govern and serve the public. Even some members of the press felt a little uncomfortable swallowing that excuse. If the Republicans had done that, they would immediately have been assailed as "right-wing, partisan and mean spirited". By contrast, the previous eight years under Governor Johnson could be described as "benign neglect". If things were going good why change them? The republicans have to bite the bullet when taking office -- clean house and kick out the SOBs. Let them bitch to the press at the beginning of the administration not at the start of the re-election campaign four years later.
