Ended up reading the latest Atlantic almost cover-to-cover. Richard Clarke, the former anti-terrorist chief, has a hair-raising piece, "America Attacked: The Sequel. Looking Back from 2011—an Imagined History." To be sure Mr Clarke takes a few expected, perfunctory digs at the President; but mostly I think the story is all too plausible, and not very political. Quite frankly, I think one almost has an obligation to read & ponder this story.
