    Wow, that's quite a stretch considering Richard Clarke briefed the Bush administration that Al Qaeda intended to fly planes into symbolic national infrastructure inside US borders.....

    Bush Administration's First Memo on al-Qaeda Declassified

    The President's Daily Brief Coverup


    Not to mention that Bush gave the Bin Laden family an exclusive secret flight out of the US and let Osama Bin Laden escape at Tora Bora. It all could have been over in a few weeks....but that would have foiled the Bush administrations plan to attack Iraq.

    Most of us know that the only thing Richard M. Nixon was guilty of was after learning of the Watergate break in, was the cover up from the White House until after the elections.

    For a year President Obama ran on "Bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run." But the real truth was, Al Qaeda was on the run, running all over the Middle East and North Africa expanding their base of operations. Then on September 11th, 2012, four Americans were murdered by Al Qaeda in Benghazi, Libya. And this is where the cover-up begins. Obama ran for reelection on lies and he had to cover-up the Al Qaeda murder of four Americans or his lies about Al Qaeda being on the run would be exposed before the elections.

    >" While discussing the contentious confirmation hearings for defense secretary nominee Chuck Hagel, things got a bit heated on Sunday's "Meet The Press" when Sen. John McCain referred to the lack of information from the White House surrounding the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi as a "massive cover-up."

    "There are so many answers we don't know," McCain told host David Gregory. "We've had two movies about getting bin Laden and we don't even know who the people were who were evacuated from the consulate the day after the [Benghazi] attack. So there are many, many questions. So we've had a massive cover-up on the part of the administration."

    Gregory then pressed McCain on what the Arizona senator meant by "a massive cover-up."

    "I'm asking you, do you care whether four Americans died?" McCain said. "And shouldn't people be held accountable for the fact that four Americans died?"

    "Well, what you said was the cover-up--a cover-up of what?" Gregory asked.

    "Of the information concerning the deaths of four brave Americans," McCain replied. "The information has not been forthcoming. You obviously believe that it has. I know that it hasn't. And I'll be glad to send you a list of the questions that have not been answered, including 'What did the president do and who did he talk to the night of the attack on Benghazi?'"McCain continued: "Why did the president for two weeks, for two weeks during the heat of the campaign continue to say he didn't know whether it was a terrorist attack or not? Is it because it interfered with the line 'Al Qaeda has [been] decimated'? And 'everything's fine in that in that part of the world'? Maybe. We don't know. But we need the answers. Then we'll reach conclusions. But we have not received the answers. And that's a fact."

    Bush screwed up and stuck with Clinton's policy, Al Qaeda was a law enforcement issue, not a national security issue.

    Bush also screwed up by not removing the "Wall" that President Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno put up that didn't allow the CIA, NSA, military intelligence to communicate with the FBI, ICS, USCS and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies when it came to terrorist like Al Qaeda.

    America screwed up by forcing political correctness upon airport security who watched some of these terrorist in the airport terminals and were suspicious but couldn't do a damn thing because the political left would accuse them of profiling and call them racist.

    It's all there in the 9/11 Commission Report.

    From what I've been told, it was liberal JAG lawyers in the JAG Corps who actually were responsibly for OBL being able to escape.

    Are you one of those who believed that the war against Al Qaeda was all about killing Osma bin Laden ? And once Bin Laden was dead we could declare victory and there would no longer be an Al Qaeda or terrorism in the world ?

    I bet last Sept. 11th was a rude awakening for you when you heard about Benghazi.

    What would you say if I told you that President G.W. Bush was just following the law that former President Clinton signed in to law ?

    Think back to 2003 when the Bush administration first went in front of Congress. Before WMD's were part of going to war. Remember ?

    FWI: I was not a big supporter of going in too Iraq, especially with Clinton's military, only being able to put 200,000 boots on the ground.

    But once our troops crossed the border in to Iraq, remembering what it was like being stabbed in the back while on the battlefield of Vietnam by my own peers and the Democrats who sent me to Vietnam, never again. Once our troops were committed, I was going to back them up 100 %

    Apache I will never understand your definition of political correctness. Are the diplomatic relations we have with Arabic countries expendable in our desire for revenge?

    "Our soldiers Stabbed in the back by politicans at home"?

    Now where have I heard that line of reasoning before?

    So Bush screwed up but it was really Clinton's fault. Oh what I'd give to live in such a world full of bull****.

    Uh no, Bush or should I say Cheney rejected Clinton's policy in favor of his own. The results speak for themselves.

    Bush also screwed up by not removing the "Wall" that President Clinton's Attorney General Janet Reno put up that didn't allow the CIA, NSA, military intelligence to communicate with the FBI, ICS, USCS and other federal, state and local law enforcement agencies when it came to terrorist like Al Qaeda.

    A lot more classified material has been released since the 9/11 Commission Report so be sure to watch "Hubris, the Selling of the Iraq War" on MSNBC tonight . It should be very informative.

    Funny how you rationalize tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths due to bad intelligence in Iraq yet are outraged by four deaths due to bad intelligence in Benghazi.

    BTW, at least the majority of Congressional Democrats that voted against AOF in Iraq did not fall for the bad intell.
