I thought this was interesting.. I found another link while searching for video, http://www.usatoday.com/news/washington/2004-03-30-questions-usat_x.htm, that contained...

"There are millions of questions that need to be answered," said Monica Gabrielle, a member of the Family Steering Committee, a 9/11 relatives group working with the commission. "She's sitting in the hot seat. ... All information is funneled through her, and she needs to explain why things weren't handled differently." Gabrielle's husband, Richard, died at the World Trade Center.

I don't blame Bush and Rice, although they certainly should have taken these warnings more seriously, i'm sure, in retrospect, they wish they had!

I DO however, find it contemptible that they tried their damndest to hide this from the American public. I also resent Condi's evasiveness regarding this document during her testimony.

Had she done as Richard Clarke did and said "we could have done better, i'm sorry" I think we'd all have MUCH more respect and sympathy toward her.

Makes me wonder what the uproar would have been if actions would have been taken to deter it. Would we have been talking that Bush was snapping his fingers to scare away tigers?

Clark had no right to say what he did. He does NOT speak for the USA gov't nor even the majority of the public. What he did was disgraceful.

How can you say this? He was THERE!

Just because it makes Bush look like a fool doesn't mean it shouldn't have been said. Maybe Bush IS a fool! :wink:

He could say something like"I feel the gove't ownes you an apology"...but he doesn't represent the gov't. He has no more right to apologize for the gov't than I do. His sentiment might have been correct, but he does not represent our gov't and had no right to do so...he oversteped his bounds big time.
