I mentioned Mansoor’s blistering comments about Richard Clarke’s claims in a prior post. Here’s a transcript of what he said as it relates to Clarke’s comments (courtesy Rush Limbaugh’s Site – I’ll vouch for their accuracy as I watched the show):
There’s an op/ed piece in today’s Washington Post written by Condi Rice that, in effect, responds to the criticisms that Richard Clark made last night on 60 Minutes. Granted, it’s written by someone who has to defend her (and others) actions during their tenures in the Bush WH, but it’s a pretty effective piece. Condi also made the rounds this morning on the morning shows and Fox probably gave her the most significant amount of time, even running over their “top of the hour” news breaks to keep her on as she was talking. She did a great job (without insulting or belittling Clarke) discussing what was done before 9-11 towards the Al Qaeda threat, and what’s been done since then.
