Clarke, The Sequel: aka Joseph Wilson's 'The Politics Of Truth'

And worse is to come. In a few months former diplomat Joseph Wilson, will publish his book, an account of the build-up to the war in Iraq, called The Politics of Truth. Wilson last summer accused the White House of ignoring evidence in its efforts to show Iraq had WMD. The White House responded by leaking the identity of Wilson's wife, an undercover CIA operative.

That scandal led to a criminal investigation of White House staff, which is still ongoing. Richard Clarke's book is just be the start of a long summer of revelations.

[from Amazon.com reader review]
Bluntly stated, if Mr. Bush led this country into war based on bogus intelligence data, he is liable under the Constitution for manipulation and deliberate misuse of that data under the "high crimes" statute of that document, given the fact it is a felony to defraud the United States through such a conspiratorial action. According to Mr. Dean, it is time for both Congress and the American people to demand of Mr. Bush the same kind of high-minded honesty he pledged to us under the oath of office. This is an important book, and one I urge you to read!

How did you know to warn San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown not to fly on 9-11? And why did you not warn the nation?
