Richard Clarke: Setting a Standard in Fear-Mongering
Richard A. Clarke writes in The Philadelphia Inquirer: "When I left the Bush administration in 2003, it was clear to me that its strategy for defeating terrorism was leaving our nation more vulnerable and our people in a perilous place.... the president also employed misleading and reckless rhetoric to perpetuate his agenda. This week's State of the Union proved nothing has changed."
[Note: Don't miss Clarke's latest novel, now out in paperback: "Break Point". It's very true that a writer can say truths in fiction that they can't say in non-fiction.]
