Oi! The chutzpah!


Meanwhile, McClellan has come under criticism for what some say is speaking out too late. Former counter-terrorism czar Richard Clarke said McClellan should have shared his beliefs while at the White House.

Richard Clarke: “Most Americans figured out a long time ago that the war in Iraq was sold to them as a bill of goods through the Bush propaganda machine. So thank you, Scott, for telling us a blinding flash of the obvious. It wasn’t obvious in 2004, however. And when I said it in 2004, McClellan was part of the White House machine that attacked me for criticizing the Bush Administration and criticizing the war in Iraq."

Hang on a second. Wasn't Richard Clark Bill Clinton's 'counter terrorism advisor'? That's not so long ago. It makes me want to inform him that many people realised decades ago, that a 'war on terror' was a sham. So when Richard Clarke blows his own trumpet for having said in 2004 (why not in 2001 on Afghanistan?), that the war on Iraq was a piece of propaganda, he is in fact even more hypocritical than Scott McClellan, since he hasn't come out and done a mea culpa (however truthful) about his own participation in state propaganda. Clarke did apologise after retirement to the victims of the Twin Towers attacks and their families for not doing enough to prevent the attacks. A little too late, perhaps?
