The eternally myopic Fred Kaplan, writing in Slate:
"In the summer of 2001, Bush did almost nothing to deal with mounting evidence of an impending al-Qaida attack. Then, after 9/11, his main response was to attack Iraq, which had nothing to do with 9/11."
Wasn't the Main Response to September 11th the war in Afghanistan?
Let's get this whole Clarke business straight: eight years of Clinton's presidency were spent valiantly fighting al Qaeda. Eight months of Bush's presidency were spent asleep at the switch, which then resulted in September 11th.
Oh, and he's got a book out.
