This is the exactly how the right-wing does it

The spin to discredit Richard Clarke

Frist tries to attack Clarke’s character & motives:

Frist’s Comments on Clarke’s Testimony.

Now the so-called “liberal press” only reported clips from this.

The problem was they didn’t report what Pat Robert’s ® said -
Roberts contradicts Frist on Clarke.


Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.), chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, says former Bush counterterrorism chief Richard Clarke’s testimony before a joint congressional panel on the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks did not contradict his later testimony before a presidentially appointed commission.

Who gets heard? Who is believed? Frist not Roberts.

What Clarke had to say was complicated & required thought to process. Unfortunately, the American people don’t have the time, interest (or intellect) to figure this out.
