Former counter-terrorism official Richard Clarke has been at the center of a heated debate over how the United States dealt with the threat of terrorism in the months leading up to Sept. 11, 2001. In a conversation with NPR's Tavis Smiley, Clarke defends his statements last week to the commission investigating the U.S. government's response to the terrorist threat, and comments on the Bush administration's decision to allow National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice to testify publicly before the panel.
