Clarke Didn’t Testify

In what’s becoming my daily Boortz quote [1]:

“In 1999 the Senate convened a special committee on the Y2K scare.  The committee wanted testimony from none other than Richard Clarke.  That’s right .. the very same Richard Clarke, the great apologizer that would have prevented 9/11 if only people had listened to him.  So … did Clarke testify?  No, he didn’t.  And why not?  Because the Clinton White House refused to permit him to testify, citing executive privilege.  That is the very same reason the Bush White House is giving for their refusal to allow Dr. Rice to testify under oath before this commission.”
