Condi rebuts Clinton

In an exclusive interview given to the New York Post, Secretary of State Condi Rice "boils over at Bubba," accusing him of "making 'flatly false' claims that the Bush administration didn't lift a finger to stop terrorism before the 9/11 attacks."


"The notion somehow for eight months the Bush administration sat there and didn't do that is just flatly false -- and I think the 9/11 commission understood that," Rice said during a wide-ranging meeting with Post editors and reporters.
"What we did in the eight months was at least as aggressive as what the Clinton administration did in the preceding years," Rice added.

Maha sets to work swiftly making hash of Condi's claims. Highly recommended.

Meanwhile, Creature at State of the Day picks out another of Condi's claims, that Iraq is part of a " longer-term strategy" which "may even have some short-term down side," and notes: "Thousands dead, billions out of our bank account, new extremists up the wazoo..." At least give Condi credit for euphemizing such a patent disaster with such a quaint turn of phrase as "down side."
