    I think when you finally pull your head out and have a look around, you'll notice that that is what's got other world powers calling bull**** and pushing back on us for. And is the reason in the US's declining influence globally. This isn't going to change either.

    Yeah, I understand you don't get this, though I've explained it multiple times. Think China and Russia.

    That wasn't his only opportunity.

    You must be joking! Talk about not being aware what's going on! The moron in the White House treats our allies like crap and kneels before our enemies. That's why and where we've lost influence.

    Clinton's anti-terrorist policy was that terrorism was not a national security issue but a law enforcement issue.

    When G.W. Bush became POTUS he stuck with Clinton's failed terrorist polices. But after 9-11-01 Bush didn't spend eight years blaming Clinton failed couner terrorist policies.
    clinton's foreign policy (w/the possible exception of the Haiti intervention), was horrible;

    however, gwb was a complete disaster who failed at all aspects of foreign policy leadership, including the simplest one--defending the US mainland from a low-tech attack.

    Would Clinton have denounced political correctness and encouraged profiling of individuals ? The 9-11 Commission pointed out that it was political correctness that allowed the terrorist to board those planes on that morning on 9-11-01.
    Deportation would not be conducive to preventing 9/11. But ensuring passport security would have.

If you Don't kill Osama Bin Laden everyone is going to hate you because 9/11 will have happened."

    My question is, did he know that Osama Bin Laden was planning such an attack on the Twin Towers? How could he have known, for all he knew he could have killed 300 innocent beings to get a guy who would only go to suicide bomb 15 civilians.

    There was no information, and because of that, I just can't have anything against Clinton in that regard, I simply cannot hold anything against him, as terrible as 9/11 was no one could have known.
    There's zero evidence that bin laden was in any way involved in 9-11. The US govt. only claims he orchestrated the attack, but that's unsubstantiated.

    The only known facts on 9-11 are that two commercial airliners (supposedly piloted by radical Muslim terrorists) crashed in the WTC towers and subsequently caused them to collapse.

    That's it. Everything else is speculation, and if the US actually had a Pres at the time whose brainpower even slightly exceeded that of an average 3 y/o, the attacking planes would've been intercepted and shot down.

    But, alas. . .
