The September 11 commission will look at the discrepancy between the testimony of Richard A. Clarke that the Clinton administration considered the threat of al Qaeda "urgent" and its final national-security report to Congress, which gave the terror organization scant mention.

I can't wait for Rice to testify... :) :) :) :) :)

Uh, but this report...

"We are blessed to be citizens of a country enjoying record prosperity with no deep divisions at home, no overriding external threats abroad, and history's most powerful military ready to defend our interests around the world."

No overriding external threats abroad? UH, WTF??????????????????????????????

I think Condi will do very well in refuting Clarke's mis-statements. I truly hope Clarke can be charged with perjury concerning his erroneous under-oath testimony. Making a buck off of hating Bush hit a new low with Clarke...

"I truly hope Clarke can be charged with perjury concerning his erroneous under-oath testimony."

Highly doubtful. One thing that ticks me off is the lack of fortitude in the GOP with respect to adhering to the laws violated by the democrats, which are numerous.

The Clinton administration's final document was 45,000 words long and titled "A National Security Strategy for a Global Age," but it hardly mentioned bin Laden and his terrorist network.

Mr. Clinton wrote in the preface, "We are blessed to be citizens of a country enjoying record prosperity with no deep divisions at home, no overriding external threats abroad, and history's most powerful military ready to defend our interests around the world."

Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my infrequent ‘miscellaneous’ ping list.

Former Rep. Lee Hamilton, an Indiana Democrat and a member of the September 11 commission, said he "probably saw that document" and others like it before he resigned from Congress in 1999, "but I don't have any recollection of it, to be blunt."

Since this report was published in December 2000, I wouldn't expect a Congressman who left office in 1999 to have had it come across his desk. Maybe he should have done a little homework before 'rushing to judgement' about the report in question.

The commission is actually doing FACT-CHECKING now?

John Kerry is deeply troubled.

Actually I have a question.

A guy I work with keeps saying that Clarkes book was given to the White house for approval before it was released, and the White house approved the book just the way it is, ergo what Clarke is saying is all true.

Is there any truth in what my co-worker says, I have trouble believing that the Whitehouse would ok that sort of drivel

Ah yes, they were sweating away on the problem. HA! I guess the reason Ben Vineste and Gorelick didn't return the calls is because they hadn't received their fax from the DNC yet.

"That's one of hundreds of documents that a president issues, [but] I don't draw any conclusions from that . . . ".

Yo, Lee! What part of no overriding external threats was not a conclusion in the preface to the Klintoon/Klarke report?
