25. Totalitarian Scum NEVER apologize
Might as well ask if Hitler, Stalin, Himmler, and "Iron Feliks" Dzerzhinsky apologized...

Same thing.

Clark was like the Otto Bismarck of the Bush Cabal.

7. What did he say?
Some of us don't have TV and get our news on the net. Can someone tell me what exactly he said or paraphrase it?

15. He was apologizing for the government letting the people down...
...by not stopping the 9/11 attacks.

More of a general 'we should have been able to stop it' sort of thing, than an 'it's all my fault' sort of thing.

11. No Wonder
No wonder he no longer works for the BA. He takes reponsibility instead of passing the buck.

16. Anyone kinda scared?
Scared of what awful thing is going to pre-empt, co-opt or obfuscate our attention from Clarke and his damning testimony?

20. Not really. Anything happening to him would look WORSE than

21. his words:
"Your government failed you," he said, "and I failed you. We tried hard, but that doesn't matter because we failed you. And for that failure I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and for your forgiveness."
