    I'm afraid that his credibility will be completely lost if he continues forward with this without any evidence.

    I watched his testimony and almost every television appearance he made in the years after the attack, and I believed every word he spoke.  It could be that it was what I wanted to believe, but everything else that was said by the Bush administration lent itself to that belief.

    I really don't want to write him off.

      He gave an interview in 2009. According to the Daily Beast story:

      He did not reply to requests from The Daily Beast to expand on his comments or to explain why he has not repeated them publicly since the 2009 interview. The documentary’s producers, FF4 Films, said they had been in contact with Clarke this month and that he stood by his remarks in the broadcast.

      As far as I can tell, it's a plausible conjecture; I see no reason for him to apologize for what he said. It isn't in the realm of thermite and holograms.
