It is strange though that such a wanted man could be let go time and time again, I wonder how much his prominent Saudi family had to do with that, I know they disowned him and all but you never know.
    Mornin AW. Indeed.....and for years now all have been trying to find out about all that Money Bilbo receives from the Saud to his Global Initiative Ponzi scheme.

    And good morning to you too MMC!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

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

    Clinton was just so opposed to harming innocents that he bombed Iraq on Dec 17, 1998, killing an estimated 2000 people. The reason? Clinton claimed Saddam had WMD!
    The bombing also coincided with the impeachment hearings against him, and wouldn't you know, the bombings stopped the same day he was impeached. But of course he wouldn't risk killing those 300 in Kandahar right?

    "Concern"...its apparently a wonderfully 'relative' word.

    Thanks for the info but what does that have to do with launches from drone platforms?

    Yeah, and I could've been a contender, too.

    That maniac Koresh set that fire himself. He also shot and killed Federal officers.

    I think he is wondering how drones work. As in, why would Hellfire missiles on a drone be so precise compared to the ones on a manned platform?

    The casualties are a product of the warhead, not the launch platform.

    But then even the tomahawk, Clinton's favorite, with a much larger warhead wouldn't kill 300 "women and children" unless they were packed in the target building like sardines.

    Hmmmm... while that first part is true, that second part doesn't seem to differentiate him from bin Laden as much as you think.
