I think we all should get to know Diana Dean, the customs agent that caught the millennium bomber as he was trying to cross into the USA. As you may recall, Richard (swinging johnson) Clarke has implied that it was his policies and the policies of the Clinton administration that led to the potential bomber's capture. You can read Diana Dean's "Prepared Statement to the Senate Judiciary Committee" here. You will notice in it that Clarke is not mentioned once. Neither is it implied that she caught this guy due to any policies or new directives that had been handed down. She caught the guy using a good old fashion "hunch". Here is another interesting read to give you more info on the subject.
