Counterterrorism czar Richard Clarke stayed on with the Bush Administration. He “followed up on (his) briefings with [National Security Advisor] Condoleezza Rice with a memo on January 25, 2001, saying that more Islamic terrorist attacks had been set in motion since the bombing of the USS Cole [on October 12, 2000]. Worse, he reported that U.S. intelligence now believed that there were already al Qaeda ‘sleeper cells’ in America.”
