According to former White House terrorism advisor Richard Clarke, the Bush administration ignored terrorism before 9/11. Clarke appeared on 60 Minutes tonight and said, "Frankly, I find it outrageous that the president is running for re-election on the grounds that he's done such great things about terrorism. He ignored it. He ignored terrorism for months, when maybe we could have done something to stop 9/11. Maybe. We'll never know." Clarke also says that after 9/11 the Bush administration decided Iraq was to blame, even though there was no evidence Iraq was involved. You can read a summary of the 60 Minutes report here.
