I was in an emergency waiting room for a loved one this afternoon. She thought she had a stroke, but everything looks ok so far thank God. We will know more tomorrow after more tests are done.
I had a long stint in the waiting room that coincided with Clarke’s testimony playing on a TV. I came away further pissed off at how the Bush administration flails at his character instead of answering the important concerns he has brought up. Two of the Republicans on the board, instead of asking hard questions, made insinuations into his motives and morals.
Folks – when people attack the messenger instead of the message – they are attempting to hide you from the truth.
Fred Kaplan, a journalist for Slate who had been stiffed by Clark 15 years ago and hasn’t spoken to him since says he’s telling the truth. How he handled the stand made me further believe it. He comes off as a true public servant.
Where are you Condi? If you had any honor – you would be on the stand. If you loved your country, you would be on the stand. Instead, it’s obvious you value your loyalty to the President over that of the American people.
“Ultimately, you?re answerable to We the People, not President Bush, Condi. We the People want to know what the hell went on ? not what you think of Mr. Clarke.”: dangerousmeta says it better.
