The Book on Clarke

Billmon over at The Whiskey Bar ("Free Thinking in a Dirty Glass") has the most penetrating summary and analysis I've so far seen of the Right Wing-nuts' assault on Richard Clarke for blowing the whistle on Bush's failure, pre-9/11, to take Al Qaeda seriously. Billmon does a detailed (and funny) run-down of all the talking points the Bushies have developed so far to discredit Clarke and then cites the man's REAL baggage from the past, which the Bushies won't go near because those particular past events also indict various branches of the neo-con power elite. Well worth reading.
