Reason Magazine takes on the Clarke allegations. You can't claim these guys are just shills for the Bush Administration. This is a particularly crucial point:

Iraq always was essential to the anti-terrorism battle precisely because victory there was regarded as necessary to transform societies from where terrorists, spawned by suffocating regimes, had emerged. One can disagree with the practicability of such a strategy, but it is difficult to fault its logic.

It's the logic of "drain the swamp, don't just shoot the alligators." The alternative is shooting alligators for generations to come.
