Perhaps if Bill Clinton had done his job way back when, the attacks of 9/11/2001 would've never happened. Because when he really truly had the chance to push the button that would've killed bin Laden, Clinton failed to act.
Let's revisit the cowardice that occurred on his watch: The disgrace in his own "mission accomplished" -- his refusal to okay heavy armor in Somalia that resulted in two of our Black Hawk helos down.
Let's recount the terrorist attacks that occurred on his watch: On the original "1 World Trade Center" (the North Tower); on the housing complex at Khobar Towers; on two of our embassies in Africa; and on the USS Cole (DDG-67). Clinton's fecklessness in response to all these terrorist acts only served to embolden Osama bin Laden (OBL), his fingerprints already on much of it. OBL declared war on us... and Clinton failed to act.
Let's get specific:
1. After receiving the "Bin Laden Preparing to Hijack US Aircraft and Other Attacks" intel brief, Clinton failed to act.
2. The CIA's "OBL unit" informed him multiple times that they could take Osama bin Laden out, and Clinton failed to act.
3. Clinton knew that OBL was at Tarnak Farms -- he could have permanently "crop-dusted" it -- but Clinton failed to act.
The final dagger in Clinton's complicity: "NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government. It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. In the fall of 2000, in Afghanistan, unmanned, unarmed spy planes called Predators flew over known al-Qaeda training camps..." and CLINTON FAILED TO ACT!
