    Failure, suggests that you tried but did not succeed.

    Allowed, means you didn't even try.

    This is not rocket science.

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    Or negligence, which seems more appropriate in this case.

    The 1993 attack on the World Trade Center is particularly damning—not that the Clinton administration was negligent in “allowing it to happen”, but that the Clinton administration was grotesquely negligent in ignoring the warning that it represented and in failing to act on that warning in such a manner as to prepare us for further attacks of that sort.

    If not for Clinton's negligence and misfeasance, the 9/11 attacks would probably have been prevented.

    yeah, you could've tripped, or the sun could've been in your eyes, or the dog could've eaten your homework, or the batteries in your alarm clock could've died. plenty of excuses, I mean reasons for failure.

    the biggest problem is the frequency with which it happened. after the 1st WTC bombing, Clinton should have done something to prevent future attacks, by not doing so, he ALLOWED all the subsequent acts to occur.

    IOW, you can't refute anything I said so you resort to smarmy innuendo.

    ah, so Clinton did NOTHING to prevent future attacks after the WTC bombing.

    that's quite a claim. too bad its totally dishonest, as Clinton did a lot to fight international terrorism.
