Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Here's a guy who worked for no less than FOUR administrations including that of Bush I without quitting and being branded a "disgruntled employee".
"He wasn't in the loop, frankly, on a lot of this stuff," Cheney told conservative talk radio host Rush LimbaughReally? Why the hell not?! The same lame line was used on O'Neill. If the Anti-Terrorism Czar isn't in the loop, who the hell is in the friggin' loop!?
Ultimately, this will come down to credibility. The Bush administration has none, but they've done a bang up job of leaving O'Neill with none and they are working all the stops on Clarke. However, makes one wonder when the claims of the so-called "disgruntled employees" are so consistent whether they aren't in fact closer to the truth than the bile that the White House spews forth.
Quite frankly, I'm not certain that this country can sustain another four years of dubya and his cronies.
