    Declassified documents shed light on scramble to 'hit' bin Laden before 9/11 – CNN Security Clearance - CNN.com Blogs

    Yet somehow it was all Bush's fault? :confused:

    This isn't new info. Clinton refused, more than once, when the military literally had UBL in their gun sights. And I do mean literally... in the fucking crosshairs... and he would not give the order.

    I do not hold Clinton responsible for 9/11... but if the left want to play the 'blame game'... he's your guy.

    This is old news. Clinton dropped the ball for various reasons, Bush was unable to get him, and Obama finally got him.

    Not only that, but he Sudan I think it was basically had him once, and offered him up to us, and Clinton's Retarded Response was that he didn't think Legally we could take him.

    LOL

    I know it's now new info, however the documents have just been released instead of just being cited in the 9-11 report. Prior to this no one, other than government officials had seen them and in some cases many questioned if they were real, in a hyper partisan effort to blame Bush.

    Yea, I think you're right... certainly one of the sub-Saharan countries had him and SaxBoy in the White House say 'thanks but no thanks'. Shame. We coulda saved a lot of lives.

    Bush didn't really want to get him... because we needed to deal with Afghanistan first... we needed an excuse to go in and knock them into submission first. This is not about a pissing contest between Presidents.... even though the left want it to be. International affairs are always far more complex than partisan twits make them out to be.

    Eyeah.."Clinton's" fault.

    Republican congress would not let covert units engage Al Qaeda because the CIA would not verify that Osama Bin Laden was behind the Cole.

    And actually? They were to busy trying to impeach him..while laughing about attempts on Bin Ladens life using what Congress left him..missiles.

    More like Obama happened to be the one in the White House when the CIA finally had put all the pieces in place.
