    Id Clarke's motive I suspect. The ifs and buts are way too many in his story. The take away is this:

    Clarke speculates – and readily admits he cannot prove

    So really there isn't much more than gossip, albeit by a former official, but still idle speculation.

      Sorry, that conjecture makes much less sense to me than Clarke's does. How do his comments help cover his ass?

      There's a lot of crazy stuff out there about 9/11, but as far as I can tell, Clarke expressed a reasonable opinion -- speculation, certainly, but not obviously "idle."

      •  A way to say 2 things: (0+ / 0-)

        "I didn't know and am not personally responsible", and there "may be" (nod nod wink wink) "an actual reason that the intel apparatus looked so damned inept - it was because Tenant (and many others in his employ) hid information from us good guys".

        Whatever, his story doesn't make any sense.
