Bubba says he "would have" attacked Bin Laden

Former President Bill Clinton says that he "would have attacked" Osama Bin Laden, but the FBI and CIA couldn't provide him with proof that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda was behind the attack on the USS Cole in Yemen. Clinton made the claims in an article that appears in New York Magazine this week.

"I desperately wish that I had been president when the FBI and CIA finally confirmed, officially, that bin Laden was responsible for the attack on the U.S.S. Cole," Clinton tells New York magazine this week. "Then we could have launched an attack on Afghanistan early."

"I don’t know if it would have prevented 9/11," he added. "But it certainly would have complicated it.”

Despite his failure to launch such an attack, Clinton said he saw the danger posed by bin Laden much more clearly than did President Bush.

"I always thought that bin Laden was a bigger threat than the Bush administration did," he told New York magazine.

Bull. If Clinton had viewed Bin Laden as a "bigger threat," he would have taken Osama when he was offered to the US on a silver platter by Sudanese officials in the late 1990s.

Bubba will say anything to exonerate himself in the light of his Administration's failures regarding Osama Bin Laden.

Precisely WHEN did the slave state of Sudan, (yes, the government that enslaves and genocidally slaughters black Christians) EVER have Osama Bin Laden "in custody?" I want FACTS, locations and the conditions of his imprisonment, not fanciful speculation by right winged book pimps looking to make a buck.
Second, since when is the slave state of Sudan a reliable and trustworthy source of information?

Didn't Clinton order the military to use missles to bomb a site where he believed bin Laden was hiding? Didn't they blow up a few camels in the excercise?

His time in front of St. Peter is going to be interesting.

Clinton launched cruise missles at sites producing and storing WMD's. But wait, how could he do that, since there were no WMD's?

Nothing ever changes with Bill Clinton. Now it's the FBI and CIA's fault that they didn't provide him with the intellegence he needed to stop Bin Laden. He always thought Bin Laden was a bigger threat but he didn't do anything about it...what a jerk.
His failures are always someone elses fault, he never takes responsibility

The President since January 20,2001 is George W. Bush. What is his opinion on Bin Laden?

>>>""I don't know where bin Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."

President Bush (March 13, 2002)
