Richard Clarke was an expert in counter-terrorism and former employee of the State Department during the Reagan Administration. He was eventually a member of the 9/11 Commission.


In 2001, Clarke was pushed off of the National Security Council Principals Committee because of his frequent warnings to Donald Rumsfeld about the threat of an Al Qaeda terrorist attack,[Citation Needed] which at that time was dismissed as unimportant.

He resigned from his post in 2003, claiming that he was ignored and his credibility attacked by Bush supporters.[Citation Needed] [1]
