The Washington Times is reporting that:

” The final policy paper on national security that President Clinton submitted to Congress … 45,000 words long … makes no mention of al Qaeda and refers to Osama bin Laden by name just four times.
The scarce references to bin Laden and his terror network undercut claims by former White House terrorism analyst Richard A. Clarke that the Clinton administration considered al Qaeda an ‘urgent’ threat, while President Bush’s national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, ‘ignored’ it. “

And so, Let’s see what we’ve got here, with Clarke.
We have someone who claims to be a Republican, but voted for Al Gore, and who, according to FEC records, only donated to democrats for the last 10 years, and someone who is best friends with Rand Beers, who is John Kerry’s advisor on national security affairs.

And now, we have the Clinton misadministration, who in their own words and descrinptions, and in direct contradiction to Clarke’s claims, clearly do not consider AlQuieda to be their ‘number one priority’.

Will the Democrats now admit they’ve been caught in another lie?

Perhaps now we know why Kerry disappeared so quickly in the last weeks… his people knew Clarke was going to blow up in their faces, and they also knew they had to shelter Kerry from the explosion.
