A question for Richard Clarke

The good folks of the Boston Herald editorial staff have a question for Richard Clarke:

We’d like to know how Clarke squares his contention that he was the only one in the Bush administration truly committed to thwarting terrorism before the Sept. 11 attacks with this: It was Clarke who personally authorized the evacuation by private plane of dozens of Saudi citizens, including many members of Osama bin Laden’s own family, in the days immediately following Sept. 11.

The Herald poses this pointed question in “Skeleton in Clarke’s closet.” (Courtesy of InstaPundit.)
UPDATE: Roger L. Simon is following this story to determine whether it might provide material for his next novel of Moses Wine (hero of eight fine mysteries including The Big Fix). Check it out. (Also courtesy of InstaPundit.)
