Media Roundup On Recent Clinton and Rice Comments Regarding Failure to Prevent 9/11
Rice and the Bush administration come out swinging - whereistheoutrage.net
Now we get to play the old familiar game he should she said. President Clinton said on Fox News Sunday that the Bush administration was given a comprehensive anti-terror plan. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice fired back in an interview with the New York Post. She states that the Bush administration was not given a plan. So what are we to believe? On one hand we have President Clinton who is trying to set the record straight and trying to clear his name. On the other hand, we have the Bush administration which has only one in a row in its quiver. That arrow is terror. If the Bush administration is not fighting terror as vigorously as they would like us to believe they would be in a great deal of trouble with the midterm elections. Therefore, each party has a reason to bend the truth.
This story is actually a few days old but is growing in steam with more and more information surrounding other officials making the news. It's even getting some big discussions going over at dailykos:
