No Wonder the Administration Went Nuclear on Clarke
He is a power Washington player and has been the media's main administration source for counter-terrorism stories for years. If you want the real book on Richard Clarke—minus the Bush-administration attacks and Clarke’s self-promotion—read Ghost Wars, Steve Coll’s new book on the CIA in Afghanistan. Clarke was mentioned by name in nearly 1,000 stories over the years, and he was the unnamed source for many more.
