06/04/2004: Alternate Gem o'the Day:
(That's what I get for picking it too early. While I'm leading in, the gem is Tom Clancy's comment, but since I didn't catch this I'll just pass on Juan Cole's summary of it)
Clancy on Wolfowitz
I just heard Tom Clancy on Deborah Norville's show. She asked him about some persons he had met in the Defense Department. When she brought up Paul Wolfowitz, and asked his impression, Clancy said "Is he working for our side?" Clancy said he was involved in a red team exercise in the Pentagon and Wolfowitz came in a briefed them, and he just did not seem to Clancy as though he were "working for our side."
I'm not entirely sure what Clancy means by this. He is no liberal, though, so it is interesting that he says it
