Clinton: I Would Have Attacked Bin Laden (NewsMax)
Ex-president Bill Clinton now says he would have taken out Osama bin Laden before the 9/11 attacks Ã¢€“ if only the FBI and CIA had been able to prove the al-Qaida mastermind was behind the attack on the U.S.S. Cole.
“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 donÃ¢€™t know if it would have prevented 9/11,” he added. “But it certainly would have complicated it.Ã¢€
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.
The unmitigated gall of this man is unbelievable.
