Clarke's Consistency.
A lot has been made about Richard Clarke's consistency on matters relating to Iraq, Terror and BushCo. Both the left and right have taken shots at him.

The line out of the White House is that 'Clarke loved us when he was here. See... Fox News has it on tape... Look at his resignation letter. Look... its an email he sent Condi!'

Conversely some on the left are pissed that Clarke didn't jump up and down about Iraq prior to the war.

Kevin Drum of WashingtonMonthly.com has dug up a few comments, in response to a Clarke critic, that Clarke publicly made just after resigning . They coincide with the beginning of the war. It's seems obvious from the quotes that Clarke's position on Iraq was that it certainly was/is a detriment to our battles with Al Qaeda.

So much for "inconsistency" on this issue. Maybe they'll have better luck with the gay smear.

“There’s a lot of money to pay for this that doesn’t have to be U.S. taxpayer money, and it starts with the assets of the Iraqi people…and on a rough recollection, the oil revenues of that country could bring between $50 and $100 billion over the course of the next two or three years…We’re dealing with a country that can really finance its own reconstruction, and relatively soon.” -Paul Wolfowitz
