Richard Clarke is a stooge of the Left

stooge n.
  1. The partner in a comedy team who feeds lines to the other comedian; a straight man.
  2. One who allows oneself to be used for another's profit or advantage; a puppet.
  3. Slang. A stool pigeon.

That is Richard Clarke. Clarke found a calling as the general detractor of the Bush Administration, and for this the Left has made him a minor celebrity.

Go read this post over at New Sisyphus and you realize something -- Clarke is wrong. He claims no one listened to him, that 9/11 was the Federal Government's fault. Yet look at his own testimony in front of the 9/11 comission,
[Former Senator Slade ]GORTON: Now, since my yellow light is on, at this point my final question will be this: Assuming that the recommendations that you made on January 25th of 2001, based on Delenda, based on Blue Sky, including aid to the Northern Alliance, which had been an agenda item at this point for two and a half years without any action, assuming that there had been more Predator reconnaissance missions, assuming that that had all been adopted say on January 26th, year 2001, is there the remotest chance that it would have prevented 9/11?


GORTON: It just would have allowed our response, after 9/11, to be perhaps a little bit faster?

CLARKE: Well, the response would have begun before 9/11.

GORTON: Yes, but there was no recommendation, on your part or anyone else's part, that we declare war and attempt to invade Afghanistan prior to 9/11?

CLARKE: That's right.

There you have it. This man has made a name for himself as the "premier" terrorism expert in America, and even he did not get it right. According to him, if the Feds would have looked to him for a solution 9/11 still would have happened. This man is making a fool of himself, and the fact that the media does not recognize this just shows their bias.
