When Clinton was President

Isn't it interesting that when Clinton was President the 1993 WTC bombers were arrested and successfully put in trial in a public court? Four men are now serving life sentences for this crime and they were convicted without the use of water boards or other 'creative' methods of torture.

Just sayin'.

Clinton was the best President we'll ever have. An intellectual juggernaut, a non-partisan, a brilliant lawyer, and owner of the best political mind of his generation.

And I still feel like I'm understating it all.

wait, what? haha, Financeguy, c'mon now. selective memory is a gift i suppose. Bin Laden was a apart of that as well, right? And do you remember the 15 minute window they had to kill him and Clinton chose to hold off (well he dealyed too long). Don't worry Bill, they came back and finished the job, it just wasn't on your watch.

And with that, there is no further need to post in this thread. Both sides have been covered.

Thank you and have a nice day

15 minute window? Wow. The Bush administrations have had 4 years (and counting).

but if you look back, and i've done a documentary on this, they possibility to kill him was based on sketchy intelligence, they weren't sure if Clinton was there, and there were several heads of prominent Arab families and oil sheiks (i believe ... recalling some of this from memory) all gathered in the same place.

can you imagine the political blowback if Clinton had launched a missle, we'd killed a dozen or so innocent-and-important Arab leaders, and *not* gotten OBL?

hindsight is 20/20.

wait, isnt that what he did when they bombed the factory to divert attention from Ms Lewinsky?

Its disrespectful to call the man the greatest president ever. Just as much as it is to call him the worse.
He wasnt a bad president by no means, true he did have his downfall's ( playing hide the cigar in the oval office for one. Being married to queen douche his wife for the other and straight getting on TV and lying to the american people and then saying he was meaning sex as in intercourse) I personally dont think Bill was a bad guy just heavily influenced by his wife.

My question is, Did he really pass the cigar off to Arafat afterwards? And If so did Arafat sniff and go wait this isnt cuban! it smells ....*sniff*....polish.

Damn. If we could have just arrested, tried and convicted the 9/11 highjackers, we'd all be happy now.

i take your other points, but we're talking about something different. OBL was a highly sought-after target in the 1990s, an assassination attempts, all covert, were attempted.

the bombings in Sudan took place after the event i mentioned earlier.

it's really too bad the bushies reverted to a cold war mentality in early 2001 and were more interested in making an enemy of china (remember that whole plane incident?) than in pursuing terrorism.

it's too bad we had such an incurious president.

Your right it did take place after but I was refering to the hoopla the bombing in sudan caused.
