    Just let us know if you think Clinton should've killed 300 people then. Just say it. No need to beat around the bush.

    Well that's kind of the point I made, we cannot blame him because he didn't know 9/11 would happen, he was looking at killing 300 innocents at the time for some random "Terrorist" living in a cave. That's a very hard thing to justify.

    Funny because killing 300 innocent people is what first caught my eye. Different strokes I suppose.

    I'm sure it's not that you are conservative and that my avatar is:

    Sorry bud but I kind of have a hard time buying what your selling.
    And what exactly am I selling here? An observation that hyper partisans arguing about what would have happened in the aftermath of events that never took place is circle jerk? I wasn't "selling" that to anyone. It was free.

    Who's to say 300 people would have died? What waa he going to do, carpet bomb the place?

    Let us know if you think those 300 terrorists and terrorist supporters were worth 3,000 Americans.

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

    Sure, and he didn't have sexual relations with that woman Ms. Lewinsky either.

    Appearing on CBS News Sunday, former CIA agent Hank Crumpton revealed that the U.S. had a chance to kill terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden months before the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, but the Clinton administration didn’t take the shot.

    While using an unmanned aerial drone to spy on members of al Qaeda in 1999, Crumpton said he watched as bin Laden himself stepped out of a vehicle convoy. Understanding that he’d been ordered to kill bin Laden on sight, Crumpton got the White House on the line immediately.

    But that’s where it got sticky, he explained.

    “The Clinton administration’s response was, ‘Well, it will take several hours for the TLAMs, the cruise missiles launched from submarines, to reach that objective. So you need to tell us where Bin Laden will be five or six hours from now,’” Crumpton said. “The frustration was enormous.”

    AQ was also behind the 1993 bombing of the WTC.

    Bill Clinton was to say. Did you not read the OP to know what the thread is about? Randomly killing 300 innocent people as some sort of preemptive action that most likely wouldn't have stopped 9/11 anyhow... pretty stupid if you ask sane people.
