Interesting story, Steve!
Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
So, are you liking the book so far?
heh. liberal media, indeed.
I finished it yesterday. One of the more interesting things, apart from the content, is the clear English in which Clarke writes. No bureaucratese at all.
He's a pretty-much equal opportunity basher as far as the FBI, the CIA and the military goes. He gives Clinton points for being smart enough to recognize the problem and approve every suggested strike against terrorists, and he gives Bush, Rice, et. al. zip for deciding that it wasn't worth as much attention as he thought it should get.
Now I definitely need to read this one. Great vignette.
CNN was a better place in those days.
It's pretty apparent that Clarke had a lot of respect for Clinton. That's a black mark against him, I suppose.
