Former Reagan Navy Secretary John Lehman of 9/11 commission is calling Clarke to task, questioning his integrity:
There's a tremendous difference -- not just in nuance but in the stories you choose to tell [the media] -- because it is so different from the whole thrust of the testimony you told us. I hope it's that your book promotion people have told you to say these things in the media because you've got a real credibility problem. Because of my long-term admiration for you, I hope you'll correct that problem.
"I will not accept any position in the Kerry administration should there be one," says Clarke. Does he protest too much?
Update: Now Bob Kerrey is trashing FOXNews for publicizing its 2002 "background" tape where Clarke speaks favorably of GW to Jim Engle.
