Friday, April 02, 2004 - Very Awkward Facts (sorry, subscription only)
To those who point out that Mr. Clarke is a registered Republican as if that lends him some sort of credibility in criticizing the President, here is a woman described as "an adviser on Iraq to the 1992 Clinton campaign," who says: "Mr. Clarke is a man famously intolerant of those who disagree with him. When he cannot win the argument, he cheats. And that is what he has done again in the pages of his book. In order to explain why he opposed the war with Iraq, Mr. Clarke mischaracterizes the arguments of those of us who favored it." She also refers to him as "Clinton counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke," not "Bush aide" as the rest of the press seems particularly fond of. Her case against his assertions is also withering.

This is worth reading. If you don't have a subscription, use the email me link at the top of this page, and I'll be happy to get you a copy.
