Which Side Is He On?

Why hasn't ABC News fired Richard Clarke? They've been paying him a significant monthly retainer for (I think) more than a year now. And at exactly the moment that ABC News might expect to get a ratings return on their investment, what does Clarke do? He waddles over to "60 Minutes" with a sensational story of Bush Administration malfeasance and misconduct.

If I was the president of ABC News, I'd see that as breach of contract. And after I fired him, I'd sue him.
