An opinion columnist for my local paper has what I regard as a pretty good take on Clarke:

http://www.oregonlive.com/news/oregonian/david_reinhard/index.ssf?/base/editorial/1080219511314050.xml

Excerpt:

<<Consider the timing and context of his charges. If they're true, why did he wait so long to make them? Why didn't he make them the day he resigned his post in the Bush administration? A presidential dereliction of duty so vast would have required no less.

If he wanted his allegations treated seriously, why did Clarke make them in a book published in the middle of a presidential campaign in which his pal, Rand Beers, happens to be the top foreign policy adviser to John Kerry?>>

There's more to the article, all worth reading.
