29 Mar 2004 Richard Clarke’s Nuremburg Defense
Husband David has thoughts on Richard Clarke:
Trying to explain away the inconsistencies between his February 2002 statement to the media in which he trumpeted the Bush Administration’s extensive early efforts to combat terrorist threats and his just-released book, which suggests the opposite, Richard Clarke claims he didn’t really mean what he said in 2002 because he was instructed by his superiors to make the comments.
In other words: He was only following orders.
That defense didn’t work in Nuremburg. It shouldn’t work now.
