Their book was published in 2002, a long time before serious doubts began to emerge about the Bush Administration's approach to terrorism, and it as at one with the sort of stuff people, including Clarke, are now saying, that the incoming Administration was unprepared to accept the importance of terrorism as a key security issue."

The real question Clarke raises is not culpability for 9/11 but responsibility for the continuing fight against terrorism: Is the war in Iraq hurting the war on terrorism, as he claims? Or, as the Bushies argue, is it all part of the same fight? That's the honest debate, and we ought to have it."
