Credibility Problem

The smear campaign against Richard Clarke continues. For a bit of perspective on the charges leveled at him by the 9/11 Commission, and in particular John Lehman (former secretary of the navy under Reagan), check out this excellent rebuttal from Juan Cole.

Juan links to a piece by Lehman he wrote for the Washington Post just after the Cole was bombed, in which claims the supposed al qaeda plot to bomb the cole is a fraud, that clearly this incredibly well executed act (driving a dinghy up to a big boat and pushing a big button) must have been done by the Iraqis.

Hmm. Who exactly entered the commission with an axe to grind?
