    Re: Bill Clinton: "I could have killed" Osama bin Laden.

    Fom the OP:

    '"I'm just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden - he's a very smart guy, I've spent a lot of time thinking about him - and I nearly got him once," said Clinton, who'd departed the White House earlier that year. "I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I didn't do it.'

    What a load of total bullsh!t.

    He is SO worried about killing 300 innocent Afghan's...yet he doesn't give a crap about 800,000 innocent Rwandans who were getting hacked to death that he not only did nothing...but his administration got the UN to stop helping as well.

    Bill Clinton: we could have saved 300,000 lives in Rwanda

    International Report Blames U.S. and Others for Genocide in Rwanda

    http://www.projectcensored.org/6-int...ide-in-rwanda/

    "They made a decision to do nothing," he said later in an interview with The Globe and Mail. "Madeleine Albright single-handedly prevented the Security Council from beefing up the mission in Rwanda."

    http://www.commondreams.org/headlines/070800-01.htm


    Bill Clinton is a coward and a hypocrite...a spineless wimp of a man.

    As pathetic as I think GW Bush and Obama were/are as POTUS's...I believe they are far better men then Bill Clinton ever was while in office.


    And if any Clinton lovers disagree...YOU ARE WRONG.

    So NO, the drone that has the ability to target and then rain down hell fire missiles CANNOT stay over its target for days.

    There are reconisance drone that can stay up for 72 hours but they carry Camera's, not weapons.

    Wow that was a lot of nothing. You do know we have more than one drone don't you? We can watch a target 24/7 by rotating them. Thinking must not be your strong suit.

    Regardless, at this point, AQ had already decided to go to war with us. Killing UBL would have simply reduced their ability to do so.
    Killing or imprisoning their leaders doesn't discourage this organization, just increases popular sympathy, which gives them a wider pool to recruit from, more access to resources, and expands their operating fields and martial capability.

    In some respects Al-Qaeda is stronger post-9/11 thanks to American efforts to destroy them on the ground. However, our ability to neutralize terrorist attacks has gotten better.

    Which is the correct way to fight terrorists: take the teeth out of their ability to terrorize.

    Concern...it's very relative, isn't it? You will excuse barbecuing 80 women and children to catch a guy accused of a bunch of things but find it distasteful to launch an attack on a guy known to cause thousands of deaths.
    LOL Just like the Govt. set the charges that blew up the World Trade Center, right?

    So leaving Alqeada alone before 911 was more successful? Drone attacks deny the terrorist American targets. It was our 200,000 "targets" in Iraq that drove the biggest increase in recruits in Alqeada history.

    Do tell.... We didn't know where he was in the village.
