The Preznit's Criminal Defense
Bush and his cohorts attack Clarke and claim innocence without offering any 'proof', much like a criminal defendant. To be sure, just like criminal a defendant, he (they) needn't offer proof of innocence nor does he (they) have to testify before the 9/11 commission. It remains to be seen, however, whether like most defendants who offer no proof and refuse to testify he'll they'll) be found 'guilty' in the court of public opinion and the electorate.
Jimmy Carter, the former US president, has strongly criticised George Bush and Tony Blair for waging an unnecessary war to oust Saddam Hussein based on 'lies or misinterpretations'. The 2002 Nobel peace prize winner said Mr Blair had allowed his better judgement to be swayed by Mr Bush's desire to finish a war that his father had started.
More criticism from another partisan hack I suppose.
