Roberts contradicts Frist on Clarke
Roberts contradicts Frist on Clarke
By Alexander Bolton
http://www.hillnews.com/news/041404/roberts.aspx

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

Robertss comments to The Hill contradict a stinging condemnation of Clarke by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) on the Senate floor after Clarke accused President Bush of failing to take Osama bin Laden seriously before Sept. 11.

Roberts said Frist did not consult him before making his floor speech, which has been criticized by Democrats. Robertss words make perjury charges against Clarke highly unlikely.

Question: Why would Roberts come out with this NOW?

3. We have been pounding
this guy with mail here in Kansas. He tows the presidential line almost 100% of the time but I do think he listens to us unlike the rest of our Repubs. He almost always disagrees but I think he does listen. There is probably an ulterior motive though, we will see it soon.

4. I don't know much about Roberts
maybe he is one of those rare Republicans who has a shred of integrity left.
