    There is another confirmation of the fact that this administration wanted to respond to the 9/11 attacks with attacks against Iraq and not Afghanistan.

    this is the week that the former clinton officials testify before the 9/11 commission. clarke, albright, cohen, berger... i'm not sure who else. should be interesting.

    Actually they've wanted to bomb Iraq for a while. Something tells me that historians will look on this dark period of US History with an eye that suggests that the reason Bush was placed into office was so he could start a war with Saddam... he didn't even have a legitimate reason (ie no connection between 9/11 and Iraq) yet managed to create the illusion of reason.

    after seeing richard clarke on 60 minutes tonite, i'm just wondering how much more it will take for the majority of people to realize this administration has serious credibility problems.

    seriously, how can you not believe a guy who was hired by reagan, then served bush the 1st, clinton and bush the 2nd until he resigned...basically out of disgust for our current foreign terrorism policy?

    an approximate transcript of the show is here

    i think stahl did a good job on the story and i enjoyed her catching hadley in a lie.

    Not surprisingly, the White House response is denial, obfuscation, and character assassination.

    I find this statement to be amazing.

    That could be used as a textbook example of a "non-denial denial."

    I wonder how Paul O'Neil is feeling about now. I guess he isn't the only "crazy and bitter" ex-employee of this White House to tell this same story. Perhaps the commission report on 9/11 might be interesting reading after all?
