Clinton: It Was All the NEOCONS' Fault! (Shoulda Said LAWYERS.)

From the transcript of the FoxNews/Clinton interview:

WALLACE: …but the question is why didn’t you do more, connect the dots and put them out of business?

CLINTON: OK, let’s talk about it. I will answer all of those things on the merits but I want to talk about the context of which this…arises. I’m being asked this on the FOX network…ABC just had a right wing conservative on the Path to 9/11 falsely claim that it was based on the 911 commission report with three things asserted against me that are directly contradicted by the 9/11 commission report. I think it’s very interesting that all the conservative Republicans who now say that I didn’t do enough, claimed that I was obsessed with Bin Laden. All of President Bush’s neocons claimed that I was too obsessed with finding Bin Laden when they didn’t have a single meeting about Bin Laden for the nine months after I left office. All the right wingers who now say that I didn’t do enough said that I did too much. Same people.

X42, former Liar-in-Chief, was obviously having a hard time spinning his way out of the question.

Clinton's worldview began and ended with "civil law." He, his Rasputin (Hildebeeste) and their gaggle of slimebucket-advisers were by and large attorneys. Thus, rather than understanding that the country was at war, they understood that there were some "vandalism problems."

Even Les Aspin understood differently--Aspin wanted desperately to bring in the troops and equipment necessary to win in Mogadishu/Somalia.

But the "lawyers," including the Commander-in-Chief, said no.

The same cockamamie lawyer-mentality, now pushed principally by (D) lawyers and judges, is making Bush's life difficult in prosecuting the war effectively and efficiently. Application of ordinary "civil rights" to illegal combatants and terrorists is simply suicidal.

I suppose that's the neocons' fault, too...

Your spin can't deceive, Dad.

First, 9/11 happened under Bush, not Clinton, and the Great General was not focused on the threat his first 8 months in office. Many sources confirm this.

Second, the "war to the death" model of counterterrorism has made the global situation worse, not better, as a recently revealed intelligence agency report confirms. That model was advocated by the neocons, and they have lots on their conscience.

Face it: your team has screwed up at every step in this game. And in doing so they have besmirched the honor and reputation of this country.

Umnnnhhh...9/11 was merely a continuation of attacks on this country begun while X42 was staining dresses. I don't know what Bush was doing, or not doing, in his first 8 months--more important, I don't know what X42 told Bush about the terrorists. Neither do you.

As to "war to the death," I think you're trying to elide a couple of things.

But I'll try to keep it simple for you.

If Clinton's method was so damn good, WHY DID 9/11 HAPPEN?

9/11 made clear that the terrorists have chosen the method: it is "war to the death."

Their choice.

As to "making it worse;" the question is where it is worse. And the answer is: NOT in the USA.

Bush & Co. are doing their jobs very well. QED.

By the way, should the terrorists strike again on US soil, they will see MORE "war to the death," not less.

And it will be driven by more, not less, anger.
