Can't stop lying
In the most explosive interview ever conducted by "60 Minutes," Richard Clarke, former counter-terrorism coordinator for G.W. Bush, told us enough to have the president impeached if only there were time.
Not only did Clarke confirm former Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neill's statements about the Bush fascination with Iraq from day one, he said that Rumsfeld wanted to bomb Iraq after 9-11 because there were no good targets in Afghanistan!
Bush ignored terrorism and might have prevented 9-11 had he been focused. The response from the administration? Condy Rice said, and I'm not kidding, "We had only been in office 230 days."
The White House is in full panic. They are attacking Clarke by saying his statements are "politically motivated, reckless and baseless." What they do not say is that his statements are false. All this while 30 second TV spots extol the president's leadership in fighting terrorism.
Better yet, Republican Senator Chuck Hagel joined Republican John McCain in saying the Bush TV spots calling Kerry soft on defense are inaccurate. Can't get much better, can it?
