Richard Clarke Slams Cheney, Rice: "The Trauma Of 9/11 Is No Excuse"

Oh please!

I simply don't believe the story that Cheney and Condi were so horrified that they overreacted, They both had ample time and many intelligence reports ("Bin Laden determined to strike in the U.S.", for example, and suspicious people taking flying lessons in Florida.) to have stopped the 9/11 plot and they chose not to do so.

And were they so hysterical that instead of staying in Afghanistan and attempting to capture and kill Bin Laden and others in the Al Qaeda organization, they got us into a war, expensive both in money and American lives in a country they surely knew had nothing to do with 9/11.

And the reasons they invaded Iraq? Money and oil! Not patriotism or love of country but money, pure and simple.

Why is Barack so unwilling to follow up on this?
