    I could be missing something here, but aren't these plans?

    Also attached to the original Clarke memo are two Clinton-era documents relating to al-Qaeda. The first, "Tab A December 2000 Paper: Strategy for Eliminating the Threat from the Jihadist Networks of al-Qida: Status and Prospects," was released to the National Security Archive along with the Clarke memo. "Tab B, September 1998 Paper: Pol-Mil Plan for al-Qida," also known as the Delenda Plan, was attached to the original memo, but was not released to the Archive and remains under request with the National Security Council.

      There are a variety of reasons why those attachments might remain classified.  Knowing this administration, it could simply be that they prove embarrasing to Bushco.  The other possibility is that they reveal practices currently in use in a post 9/11 world. To reveal that information could legitimately pose a national security risk -- of course it still begs the question, what might have happened differently if those strategies were enacted back when Richard Clarke wrote the memo.
