Ex-CIA Dir. James Woolsey, on Clarke (Via Hotline):
Ex-CIA Dir. James Woolsey, on Clarke: “He’s a man who, once he gets locked into a view, doesn’t listen anymore. He is an able man, in some ways. But in this case, he got locked into the view early on that there was nothing ever, no contacts of any kind between al Qaeda and governments such as Iraq. And so I think he ignored some of the clear evidence that George Tenet spread out before the Senate in 2002 about Iraqi training of al Qaeda in poisons, gases and explosives” (“On the Record,” FNC, 3/24).
