not that I think Bush et al are blame free but allow me to ask this question.
how did Bush and Cheney and Company know about all of this before hand? Was it from Clinton's weekly meetings about Al Qaeda and Bin Laden? If Bush
et al were looking into a threat that clinton looked into, and clinton deemed that threat not essential, thus the kill orders were never given, then
they ARE BOTH AT FAULT.
Did bush know and let it happen? Possible. I wouldn't put anything past him, not even kicking babies for sport (fun but wrong. very wrong).
However, Clinton does claim that his administration took OBL and AL Qaeda so seriously that they met weekly to keep as up to date on the terror group
as possible and there were, apparently, two subs off the coast awaiting orders to fire missiles at OBL. If we are spending all that money to locate
the window and take this man out, why was the order from Clinton given once, with a hell of a long warning to the PAkistani gov't so that OBL could
Everyone seems to want to take a side here. Both presidents failed us. Clinton was not paying close enough attention to what he deemed a very
important issue. Bush paid attention and possibly ignored it.
Unless Clinton really did believe that Bin Laden wasn't the threat he was made out to be. then the cia wasted tons of time and money and the reports
that passed along to Bush would have indicated that OBL and Al Qaeda were not a huge threat and then Bush might have ignored much of the intel as
Clinton apparently did.
I doubt this happened. I think Clinton was too busy worrying about his penis and the trouble it was getting him into to concern himself with a man
who was mostly concerned blowing up and funding the blowing up of american interests overseas.
I think Bush didn't think we'd be hit here but he didn't concern himself because if nothing happens, that's good. If it does and we go to war,
that's good too.
so please stop point the republican/democrat fingers. They have all F'd up. Some say back to Carter. I say Reagan but there is a good argument for
