Former President William Jefferson Clinton and his minions are strong-arming the folks at ABC Television in order to stop a docudrama being aired during the fifth anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attacks.
The Clintonistas are conducting a full-court press to prevent Americans from seeing the truth about Bill Clinton's fight against terrorists in the two-part TV movie "The Path to 9-11." They are proving that Clinton still exerts incredible power in the US thanks to his sycophants, goons, and spin doctors. They don't want Americans to realize that the former president is all hot-air and bluster.
As he travels throughout the world denigrating the current Commander-in-Chief in the midst of a war, no one in the news media feels it's important to point out -- to emphasize -- that during the Bush Administration there was one terrorist attacks against the United States and its interests overseas in five years. How many terrorist attacks were there during the Clinton Administration?
(I know more people died during the 9-11 attacks and it was by far the largest attack suffered by the US, but Al-Qaeda terrorists didn't start their war on the US on January 20, 2001. In fact, one can make the argument that the Clinton Administration's record on fighting terrorists emboldened Al-Qaeda.)
But let's give credit where credit is due: Clinton and his people do talk a great war on terrorism. Let's examine Clinton's record of combating terrorists:
In 1993, President Clinton failed to prevent a bombing at New York City's World Trade Center, and the terrorists succeeded in their WTC attack, killing six and wounding over 100 New Yorkers. In fact, Clinton never even visited the bomb site. And, except for a few arrests, trials and convictions, according to the late John O'Neill, the FBI's top counterterrorism maven, the Clinton Administration refused to follow-up and go after Al-Qaeda.
He also failed to fiercely battle a faction of Al-Qaeda in Somalia right after the so-called Black Hawk Down incident. Clinton hadn't sent in troops with tanks, Bradley armored vehicles and high-tech weapons. He sent them in with Hummers, rifles, grenades and launchers, and other small arms and conventional weapons. And then he ordered a retreat.
Then there was Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1997, when terrorists succeeded in killing 19 and wounding hundreds American military troops and civilians. There was never any follow-up by Clinton.
In 1998, there were simultaneous attacks on two of our embassies. And then in 1999, the terrorists succeeded in their attack on the US Navy's USS Cole. Seventeen sailors were killed and scores were wounded. But still Clinton took no action in either attack.
Even Clinton's claim of thwarting the Millennium terrorist attack on LAX airport is a lie. Clinton didn't apprehend that Islamofascist on his way to bomb Los Angeles International Airport. It was achieved by an alert female US Customs agent. Clinton did take credit for it, but the mainstream news media knew that the hardworking Customs agent never received any terrorism alerts and took it upon herself to investigate a suspicious looking character coming across the US-Canadian border.
Yet, our MSM decided to allow Clinton and his flunkies to take credit and the Customs agent has been relegated to relative anonymity. The Customs agent who saved countless lives and property remains unknown in history, but William Jefferson Clinton is being allowed to rewrite history. The only positive thing is that the Clintonistas didn't try to discipline that brave Customs agent for her use of racial profiling.
Even Clinton's own FBI director, Louis Freeh, says the former president let down the American people and the families of victims of the Khobar Towers terror attack in Saudi Arabia. After promising to bring to justice those responsible for the bombing at Khobar Towers -- a bombing that killed 19 and injured hundreds -- Freeh says Clinton refused to personally ask Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah to allow the FBI to question bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody.
Freeh writes in his book, “Bill Clinton raised the subject only to tell the crown prince that he understood the Saudis’ reluctance to cooperate and then he hit Abdullah up for a contribution to the Clinton Presidential Library.” Says Freeh, “That's a fact that I am reporting.”
Freeh says he was determined to stay on as FBI director until President Clinton left office so that Clinton could not appoint his successor.
“I was concerned about who he would put in there as FBI director because [Clinton] had expressed antipathy for the FBI, for the director. [So] I was going to stay there and make sure he couldn't replace me,” Freeh told Mike Wallace of CBS' 60 Minutes.
Here's what action the Clinton Administration took to fight terrorism: his Justice Department minions increased the height of the "wall" prohibiting the FBI and the CIA from sharing information. What moron did that? Jamie Gorelick. The 9-11 Commission Jamie Gorelick. And what did she say when questioned by other panel members? She never testified before the 9-11 panel. It was like having a convict sit on the board of his own parole hearing.
