    Nancy Soderberg, a former Ambassador to the United Nations and Foreign Policy Advisor under the Clinton administration, repeated the often-heard myth that President Clinton prevented Millennium attacks on the United States. Soderberg made the debunked claim as a guest on tonight's episode of The O'Reilly Factor (Thursday, February 9, 2006).Soderberg's claim would refer to the arrest of terrorist Ahmed Ressam at the U.S-Canada border on December 14, 1999. It was later learned that Ressam planned to bomb Los Angeles International Airport on or around New Year's Day 2000. Clinton defenders have often falsely cited this incident as evidence that...

    Until recently, Nancy Soderberg was just another blissfully forgotten face of the Clinton administration.... But she gained some notoriety this month during an appearance on "The Daily Show," in which host Jon Stewart was half-marveling, half-despairing at the turn of events in the Middle East after the Iraq elections, which seemed to vindicate President Bush.... Soderberg: "Well, there's still Iran and North Korea don't forget..." Begin with the simplest errors of fact.... [W]hen Ms. Soderberg snickers about how candidate Bush struggled through a foreign-policy pop quiz in 2000, one is compelled to snicker back. Next ... errors of analysis. "It...

    Thank you very much because I saw that late last night and encourage people to actually look at the tape of the show and what the context of what that is. This is a comedy show. We were joking about the dilemma of Jon Stewart having criticized the Bush administration over the last 4 years. What does he do now. And we were joking back and forth. Um, I think anyone who follows the Democratic party knows that they want America to succeed and the President Bush to succeed. Um, it 's a completely a.. a... a ... mixed conte.......

    We hardly ever watch Comedy Central's "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart," but our TV happened to be tuned to it last night when erstwhile Clinton aide Nancy Soderberg, author of "The Superpower Myth: The Use and Misuse of American Might" (foreword by Bill Clinton, blurb by Madeleine Albright) came on. We're not sure what possessed us to turn on the sound and watch, but we're glad we did, for it was a fascinating interview. Here's a TiVo-assisted transcript of most of it: Stewart: This book--it talks about the superpower myth of the United States. There is this idea, the...
