So, Richard Clarke doesn’t like the way the Bush administration handled the events leading up to 9/11. He feels that more could have been done to prevent it. Did we really need Richard Clarke to point that out to us? Wasn’t it obvious that the Bush administration was completely incompetent with regards to the handling of 9/11 (before and after it happened)? And now that Bush is getting a lot of bad press from Clarke’s book and comments on how incompetent he is, he has decided to “allow” Condoleeza Rice to testify to the commission investigating 9/11. It’s more like she will be made to testify against her will. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not the biggest advocate of Condoleeza Rice. But she certainly isn’t the only person in the Bush administration that was involved in the handling (or lack there of) of 9/11. It kind of makes you wonder why she is being singled out.

I have an idea. Why don’t we “allow” Bush to testify publicly about what did and didn’t happen prior to 9/11? Put Colon Powell on the stand too for all I care.

I have to agree with PA on this; but, as I have stated in the past, I shutter the kind of pressure this woman must be under... and Colin Powell too; I mean he gets grayer-skin and hair- as each day passes.

I am no fan of either of them; and what little empathy I may have had for them- because of scrutiny that they go through, etc.... left after Haiti- And I still think that is for the Haitians to figure out; but did they get their souls mixed up in this matter?

I just wish them rest.

This is an example of why I think the present day political arena can be extremely hazardous to the health and welfare of Black Americans. With people like Bush at the helm, leading the pack, how can we not get sucked into the vortex when the "stuff" hits the fan?

Because Colin and Condi have such high level positions with a great deal of "authority", they are very deeply involved in what happens politically in this country and therefore, all we can do is sit back and wait to see where the axe drops. Even though in the beginning Colin was very much against taking on Iraq, and vehemently argued his opposition with Bush and Condi, ultimately he was out powered and had to go along and defend whatever reasons he was told we should. Did he know he was defending a "lie"? Probably so, and if he didn't he should have taken the time to find out since it was his butt that would be out there naked taking pot shots. The National Security Advisor and Secretary of State...don't have the luxury of saying "oops!"

Peace,
Queenie :spinstar:

--- Abraham Lincoln

Resisting the strident public calls for Rice’s testimony under oath, the White House has unwittingly generated the distressing impression that they are seriously afraid of perjuring themselves during an election year. In fact, new information on a national security policy speech has recently surfaced that reveals that the White House was preoccupied with establishing Reagan's SDI system on the very day that the terrorists attacked. In short, terrorist attacks were not on their radar screen, and as a result, poor George was caught with his pants down.
