“On September 4 [2001], [counterterrorism czar Richard] Clarke was finally given the chance to present his strategy [for attacking al Qaeda] at a meeting of the administration’s so-called Principals Committee, a group of high-level cabinet-ranking policy makers. …it was only their second meeting about terrorism [in seven and half months]–out of 90 to 100 meetings since [President] Bush had taken office.”

 – Craig Unger, House of Bush, House of Saud, Page 239
