    Of interest on Dick Clark...

    In his book he vividly tells of a meeting on 9/4/01 where he says that Rumsfeld made remarks that he said he clearly remembered on Iraq...

    Last night on PBS's Lehrer report Rummy was on... he had a big smile on his face as he informed the public that he was not in any meeting with Clark on that date.

    Detailed diaries are kept at DOD on matters such as these things

    I guess it was just another lie on Clarks part.

      Sounds like a non-denial denial. Doesn't it?

        Rumsfield was apparently elsewhere and can prove that he didn't attend the meeting.

        Looking more like your guy Clarke might be in some serious trouble if he's altered his testimony to sell more books.

        This is a good example of why I said I'd like to see all these liberals making these wild accusations and conspiracy theory suggestions, under cross-examination and questioning.

        You see how Clarke's motives and story continue to change.

        You can't just take comments by some partisan with an agenda and take their word for fact. You have to do the same analysis that jurors would do with any witness. Cross-examination to determine motives and biases, and cross-examination to determine if they're playing fast and loose with the facts.

        Dick Clarke has totally been discredited, IMO.

        And, I note that he's adopted the famous Kerry strategy, in that when your own words impeach you, then you pretend that the attacks are coming from your opponent (the old pre-emptive defense of going on offense).

        Both Kerry and Clarke seem to be masters of this. Only problem is that Americans know it. Polls show that Clarke's assertions aren't believed by most and haven't changed any minds.

        But, I notice it's selling lots of books for him.

    • you guess ... Dumsfeld could have lied as well.
