I guess your selective memory forgets that the first attempt on the WTC was made while Clinton was President.
Good lord dude, usually when someone digs a hole, they try to stop before they get too deep; your attempts amounts to covering yourself with the dirt after you get into the hole.
Two things. Firstly, as to the OP, I still have seen zero evidence that what Wilson said was racially motivated. NONE.
Secondly, as to where this thread seems to be heading. Blaming 9/11 on Clinton or Bush is silly. 9/11 is the fault of the terrorists who planned it and carried out the plan.

"What's your point?"
Are you seriously trying to imply that the past actions of a country, or of an administration, have absolutely no bearing on the present and actions taken in the past can't lead to the circumstances of the present that cause the potential actions?
For example, a hypothesis...
If not for the Gorelick Wall then the FBI along with numerous other law enforcement and intelligence organizations could've concievably actually put together a better understanding of the situation and rather than telling the Bush Administration that an "attack was imminent", something I dare say is strangely not to uncommon of a thing in regards to intelligence gathering, they could've given him far more information that was actually actionable rather than a nebulous bit of information he was given. However, such was not possible because the Wall was there and information wasn't shared and thus a clear picture wasn't had and thus the information needed to stop such an act wasn't likely to be able to be figured out in the first place.
To take a notion that the actions, policies, and decisions of past Presidents are absolutely absolved and forgotten and all issues coming from those things immedietely fall completely, fully, and unquestionably onto the fault and blame of the current President...or hell, remove president and insert ANYTHING....is an incredibly illogical and unrealistic way of viewing any situation as you're basically believing that everything and anything exists in some sort of vacuum or bubble.

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I have never filled out many forms to get into any country other than the typical one page declaration.
That is my theory. ::shrugs:: Sometimes, threads have a life of their own and in this case, for the better; thank you Laila!
