    listened to Richard Clarke, and responded to the "Bin Laden..." memo, unlike the certain brush cutter ("Shrub" cutter?) you aptly describe, and his shady crew.

    And, if the fateful "Bin Laden Prepared to Strike in US" memo had been put in front of him, Gore would have likely begun an immediate response, rather than continuing his vacation.

    Where's the Republican obsessive firestorm of outrage over that little "failure to respond" to clear intelligence?
