Salon has posted a pretty interesting interview with former counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke. Check it out here. Clarke (who’s served under Republican & Democratic presidents alike) comes off as a non-partisan guy who’s mostly looking to put the truth out there rather than incite partisan wars.

While I’m less convinced that the 9/11 attacks could have been avoided, I’m certain the Bush administration didn’t always have the nation’s best interest in mind when they made decisions like going to war in Iraq. This interview gives a little insight into their pigheadedness, and also will hopefully refute some of the offensive personal attacks they’re launching against Clarke (rather than talking about the matter at hand). is gathering donations to put together an ad about Clarke and Bush. You can check it out and donate here.
