    Ten Questions for Richard Clarke.

    Number 1: Mr. Clarke, the first time the Sudanese government offered bin Laden to the United States, exactly what advice did you give Bill Clinton?

    Number 2: Mr. Clarke, the second time the Sudanese government offered bin Laden to the United States, exactly what advice did you give Bill Clinton?

    Number 3: Mr. Clarke, the third time the Sudanese government offered bin Laden to the United States, exactly what advice did you give Bill Clinton?

    Number 4: When Al-Qaeda attacked our barracks in Saudi Arabia, exactly what advice did you give Clinton for striking back at them?

    Number 5: Mr. Clarke, when Al-Qaeda attacked the World Trade Center in 1993, what advice did you give Clinton for striking back at them?


    Number 6: Mr. Clarke, when Al-Qaeda attacked the USS Cole, what advice did you give President Clinton for striking back at them?

    Number 7: Mr. Clarke, when Al-Qaeda attacked the two U.S. embassies in North Africa, weren't you one of the experts who advised Clinton to bomb the pharmaceutical factory in Sudan?

    Number 8: Mr. Clarke, when Clinton was slashing the defense budget in the face of these Al-Qaeda attacks, did you advise him against it?

    Number 9: Mr. Clarke, when Clinton undermined the CIA in the face of all these takers, did you advise him against that?

    Number 10: Mr. Clarke, isn't it true that you and your colleagues in the Clinton administration generally were complete and miserable failures in defending this nation?

    How excatly did Clinton go after Bin Laden?

    Oh, oh, I know the answer to this one. Clinton fired two cruise missles at some empty tents in the middle of Afganistan that may or may not have, at one time, been occupied by Osama bin Laden, but had probably been used by al Qaida at some point.

    Clark was the only guest on Meet the Press today. He addressed some of your questions. I’ll let him speak for himself on that. I do think that it is relevant that during his testimony Clark took responsibility for some of his failures and apologized to the families of the victims. Here in Washington, it is unusual for anyone to take responsibility for what he/she did or did not do and apologize. Clark was asked by Russet if he thought Clinton and Bush should apologize. Clark said that was up to them.

    Oh yeah, the title of this tread is similar to what Clark said in the same interview. Russert asked if Clinton shared the blame for 9/11. If memory serves, I think Clark responded that Clinton did little, Bush did nothing before 9/11.

    I think there is plenty of blame to go around. I know I did not lose sleep over the threat from Al-Quada before 9/11.

    Richard Clarke is a complete and utter liar. Would y'all liked us to have invaded Afghanistan before 9/11? I could just hear it now lol, you think their bitching and whining about Iraq is bad. Their are two simple and undisputable facts despite what the bitter opportunist Clarke has to say, 1. Bin Laden was offered to Bubba 3 TIMES and he did squat. 2. Bubba lobbed 2 cruise missles and bombed an aspirin factory, in other words he did nothing. Oops I forgot there is a 3rd, 3. The terrorists entered and trained in this country under Bubba's watch and yet they didn't know jack so no info. was passed on to Bush because none of the bumbling idiots under Bubba had any. All the blood rests with Bubba, at least Bush is attempting to clean up Bubba's mess.

    Lets remember also that Clarke is trying to sell a book, wreaks of opportunism if you ask me.

    Why are the conseritives always triing to compare bush to clinton ,Are they so hard to make themselves believe that bush is really doing a good job. Personally I think Bush is doing and excellent job in the self interest part of his job. OIL profits up 30 percent ,And a farout excuse to drill in alaska. Why is it opec has not cut back on exports to the rest of the world actually increase production to china , huh duh could it possibly be our great president and his sidekick dick have anything to do with it. Was it not dick who said the oil companies are running to lean on profits .i suppose blowing up 1000s of oilwells would have the same affect meaning a 20 year high in profits for our oil companies, has anyone seen any out of gas sighs ,I mean were low on fuels thats the reason for these crazy prices. OR IS IT. WE NEED LAWS ABOUT SELF INTEREST IN POLITICS

    Because the subject is 9/11. Clinton was kind enough to turn down an offer to have Osama turned over to the USA. He was also kind enough to allow 16 hijackers entry into the USA.

    You're right, there is no comparison.

    Robert111, you are missing the point entirely. The question of Clinton in regard to WOT is in context to Clarke's advise to Clinton and how that advise was acted apon. Bringing into question Clarke's credibility in regard to the WOT. Your oil rant is doing nothing for the argument.
