Former President Bill Clinton, angrily defending his efforts to capture Osama bin Laden, accused the Bush administration of doing far less to stop the al Qaeda leader before the September 11 attacks. Is this guy serious? Does he believe his own hype?
Let's do the math:
President Clinton had 8 years. Bush had <8 months.
Osama bin Laden targeted the US on 9/11 because of the lack of response by Clinton. Let's review:
USS Cole: No response.
African Embassy Bombings: 4 cruse missiles (2 for each embassy bombed).
Saudi Arabian Towers: an FBI investigation, no response abroad.
World Trade Center bombing: an FBI investigation, no response abroad.
Earlier this month, Clinton dismissed as "indisputably wrong" a U.S. TV show that suggested her was too distracted by the Monica Lewinsky scandal to confront the Islamic militant threat that culminated in the September 11 attacks.
Then why did you not capture him Bill?
Those who live in glass houses should not be throwing stones...
