    and?
    “I’ve always stated, ‘I’m a Missouri Tiger,’” Anderson said March 13 after Arkansas fired John Pelphrey, adding, “I’m excited about what’s taking place here.”

    Asked then if he would talk to his players about the situation, he said, “They know me, and that’s where the trust comes in.

      Clarke's got an 'agenda' and it's called 'Can you tell that I'm full of shit?"
      I guess that's why the Administration is intent on questioning his character INSTEAD OF proving his testimony wrong. :rolleyes:

        So, you can keep hanging your hat on the fact that his facts are generally accurate.
        OK, I will.

          What he has said sounds pretty factual.

          The conclusions he's drawn are partisan in nature.

          Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned.
          And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

            CLARKE SAYS VOTED FOR GORE:

            [MEET THE PRESS]

            RUSSERT: Did you vote for George Bush in 2000?

            CLARKE: No, I did not.

            RUSSERT: You voted for Al Gore?

            CLARKE: Yes, I did.
            How odd that he voted for someone he had been working with for 8 years instead of a complete stranger.

              That assessment I can just about agree with, though I think there is some feeling of wanting to do right for the victims of 9/11 that you left out.

                JD is right on with his last post.

                The real issue? I'm sure you mean, what the fuck happened and how it can be prevented from happening again in the future? That real issue?
                If the real issue is understanding the past to prevent a repeat in the future, why are many of you focusing so much on the negative things Clarke has said about Bush? You guys are making partisan politics the issue.

                  Clarke did it first.

                  They're just following his lead.

                    Very few will argue that his assessment of the risk and even his suggestion to combat were not accurate.

                    It is the manner in which he has politicized the issue. In book, in interview but not so much in testimony. Why?

                    It is obvious that he felt slighted by the Bush administration, not so much for not heeding his warnings (because no administration did) but because he was not given a more significant role in the Homeland Security department. Which, he probably deserved. But his childish antics now further cloud the issues at hand.

                    He has proven himself to be just another bureaucrat more interested in his legacy that actual public service.

                    Sorry state of affairs.

                      Clarke describes his book, in the preface, as "factual, not polemical," and he said in an interview that he was a registered Republican in the 2000 election
                      Former counterterrorism czar Richard A. Clarke insists his attacks on President George W. Bush have nothing to do with politics, but an Insight check of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records shows that his only political contributions in the last decade have gone to Democrats.



                      FEC records show that Clarke reported no political contributions when he worked in the Clinton administration in the electoral cycles of the 1990s and 2000, when he said he was a Republican.

                      nothing damning here, just background fodder.
