Far from being a fair and balanced interview. Hadley was not given the same opportunity to comment on Clarke's accusations. Stahl paraphrased most of what he had to say. I wonder what was left out during the editing.
I agree - 60 Minutes butchered Hadley's rebuttal and substituted Stahl voice overs.
I also liked all of the pictures reinforcing the image of a serious, hard working Clinton juxtaposed with film of Bush walking across the South Lawn, giggling, to go along with Richard Clarke's assertion that Bush "just isn't serious" or "engaged" when it comes to fighting terrorism. Real subtle.

I noticed that as well, Leslie Stahl could have easily used a picture of President bush at his desk, but the editors at 60 Minutes chose the clip they did.
Richard Clark teaches a class at Harvard with John Kerry's National Security Adviser for his campaign "Rand Beers" is his name and you can read a little about him here
