    I must have seen a different interview. I remember Clinton Saying he had tried but FAILED to get Bin Laden. Which is actually a cool thing to do. He admitted he had tried and admitted it had not worked.

    I am glad Bill never tried to spin it like Fox or The Hollywood Liberal. He just told the truth. I wish more of these guys would do this while in office.

  2. Buck Says:

    ha ha ha ha ha What did he try to do? He used up 200 million dollars worth of cruise missiles to tag some camels in the ass. That was a total waste of resourses. Clinton should have sent in special forces. He must have took a public opinion poll before the important decision. He lied about what he said he knew about Al Qaida in the late 90s. He also lied to Fox News about having tried to do something. Why, because Slick knew back then launching a few cruise missiles wasnt going to do anything. He tried to cover his ass and in the process exposed his whole hiney. That is what he gets for loafing and being sorry and shitty and a genuine PR con artist lazy ass!! ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
    Bill lost it in the interview. Only a man that knew he did some serious fu*king up would react like that. I remember that waiving finger. He got put on the spot and could not handle it. So he pulled some thing out of the IS playbook. ‘I tried and failed’……he said.. ha ha ha ha
    Bullsh*t is what that is. He never tried to do jack sh*t . He tried to do nothing on anything, and in the process failed on EVERTYHING. ha ha ha ha ha …That is my take……Buck otut….

    I didn’t try to spin anything. Buzz, once again lying. I just put it up there for all to see.

    Here is the transcript of what Buzz claims is Clinton’s acknowledgment of failure. Seems to me he isn’t willing to take all the blame himself and that it had a lot to do with Bush buddies at the CIA…of course I’m sure the right-wing media has pulled out only Clinton saying he didn’t do enough and left out the full explanation. I think Clinton has every right to defend himself when the right-wing has attempted to pass along Bush’s failure onto Clinton recently (conveniently right before elections)

    *********************************

    CLINTON: No, no. I authorized the CIA to get groups together to try to kill him.

    The CIA, which was run by George Tenet, that President Bush gave the Medal of Freedom to, he said, “He did a good job setting up all these counterterrorism things.”

    The country never had a comprehensive anti-terror operation until I came there.

    Now, if you want to criticize me for one thing, you can criticize me for this: After the Cole, I had battle plans drawn to go into Afghanistan, overthrow the Taliban, and launch a full-scale attack search for bin Laden.

    But we needed basing rights in Uzbekistan, which we got after 9/11.

    The CIA and the FBI refused to certify that bin Laden was responsible while I was there. They refused to certify. So that meant I would’ve had to send a few hundred Special Forces in helicopters and refuel at night.

    Even the 9/11 Commission didn’t do that. Now, the 9/11 Commission was a political document, too. All I’m asking is, anybody who wants to say I didn’t do enough, you read Richard Clarke’s book.

    WALLACE: Do you think you did enough, sir?

    CLINTON: No, because I didn’t get him.

    WALLACE: Right.

    CLINTON: But at least I tried. That’s the difference in me and some, including all the right-wingers who are attacking me now. They ridiculed me for trying. They had eight months to try. They did not try. I tried.

  5. Buzz Says:

    I was not saying that Clinton was a failure. I said exactly what he acknowledged. That he tried and it didn’t work out. My whole point was that both administrations have a bit of blame on this one. I think Clinton even admitted so himself in a round about way.

  6. Bill Says:

    Hey IMZ90028 if your buddy Clinton did what he could and George Tenet didn’t get ahold of him than explain this. George Tenet is not a Bush friend he doesn’t support him and monday on the Today show George Tenet said than Clinton had 8 chances to get Bin Laden and would never answer his phone and give the go ahead and Bush has only had 1 chance and screwed it up. So lets see that means Clinton had 8 times as many chances as Bush and still screwed it up, boy that’s a president I want. One who is more interested in getting a hummer rather than keeping his country safe.

  7. HL Says:

    OK Bill, so what were those 8 chances?? Clinton specifically said that the FBI and CIA refused to certify on Bin Laden, which meant that he would have had to use special forces to go after him, which The Military was agaisnt as too dangerous. But unlike Bush Clinton listened to his military leaders. How is that Bush had only 1 chance in 8 months. Why did he demote Richard Clarke who was the nations number 1 anti terror guy going all the way back to Reagan. Why didn’t they want to listen to Clarkes comprehensive plan to get Bin Laden???

  8. Bill Says:

    Lets see, first off you better read Richard Clarkes book before you start listening to your buddy Clinton. Clarke states in there that he wanted the postion that they put him in he was not demoted. Second Clinton is the one who has to ceritfy the target not the CIA or the FBI you start doing some investgating and you will find that out for yourself. When they certify a target that is in lamons terms the president putting a hit out on that person

  9. Buck Says:

    Bill Clinton knew about Al qaida in the late 90s. Folks thats about four years of knowing not eight months. Bill Clinton had around 1460 chances to get Bin Laden. Or at least TRY in some kind of gutsy way. He did nothing of the sort . 1460 days of some absolutely serious fearing BinLaden and setting on his ass. He wanted America to cower. So that is the direction he took the nation. After all, it takes alot of time to prepare the right memo. Oh, you know the so called anti terrorist guide lines that Clinton black ball lied about. There were none! There wern’t guied lines for for sh*t. Clinton’s anti terrorist guidelines evidently consisted of working three years on a defineing the hell out of the problem memo. A pass the buck memo! So, it was useless memos, wasted cruise missiles and Sandy Berger shoving intell documents down his pants that will turn out to be the Clinton legacy on national security. what a BLOW HARD. That sure is some anti terrorist guiedlines. Clinton fu*ked us all. Real hard!!!

  10. HL Says:

    OK Bill and I’m sure you read Clarkes book from cover to cover. Let me ask you a question,why do you want to come on here and spread these Lies, dont you have anything better to do??? What you think the readers of this site are so dumb that they are going to believe your lies. Please

  11. lmz90028 Says:

    “four years of knowing is not eight months.”

    So what, you think GW came into office not knowing about any of this? If he didnt’ think he could handle the job, he shouldn’t have entered the race.

    By the way….we STILL dont’ have Bin Laden. You make it sound like GW has this in the bag.
