Skeletons in Clarke's closet ?

by Del McMullen / April 1, 2004 12:34 PM PST

........ It was Clarke who personally authorized the evacuation by private plane
of dozens of Saudi citizens, including many members of Osama bin Laden's own
family, in the days immediately following Sept. 11. ..........


....... Clarke who now claims National Security adviser Condoleezza Rice
didn't even know what al-Qaeda was, could have stopped the bin Laden
airlift singlehandedly. .........


.......... Why didn't he appeal to Rice, or even Preseident Bush himself
in one of those one-on-ones in the Situation Room, to block the flights? Surely
it would have been helpful to determine - without a shred of doubt - that those
passengers knew nothing about the Sept. 11 plot or the modus operandi of
their notorious relative. ...........

There's a long follow-up. Don't let her mention of Michael Moore throw you - she is not a fan of his.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
