The spinning is almost out of control. CNN counted no less than 15 interviews lined up by the White House to counter last night's devastating Richard Clarke interview. Just now, the WH communications director drove home the point that these jackasses are going to drive until this goes away:
Despite Clark's emphatically calling for a meeting on the topic, there were many many meetings about the al Qaeda terror threat that Clarke wasn't in on.
We're not going to use the bold italic huge fonts here. We're going to say this very, very quietly:
If you're calling meetings about the terror threat, why didn't you invite the head of the NSC's counterterrorism department, Richard Clarke? Only makes sense, doesn't it?
So far, not one reporter has challenged them on this point. Gutless.
