Against All Enemies: Inside America's War On Terro&hellip by Richard A. Clarke
How many Ex-Bush Administration officials have to come out with sobering memoirs that show Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld for who they are before all Americans wake up? At the time of this writing, Kerry and Bush are still neck and neck at about 45% in the polls! WTH?
The most enjoyable part of this book is when Clarke proves how good at counterterrorism Clinton was.

I wasn't turned off by the "80s synths" either. It has a great retro feel to it. And some of the songs (The Ballad of Dorothy Parker, Starfish and Coffee, The Cross) haven't aged AT ALL.
I realized that a lot of this sounds like the template to what would become 90s R & B and pop (Outkast anyone?)
Probably the most thought-provoking song (Even more that the title track) is "If I Was Your… Read more
