    none of which prevented the oklahoma city bombing or 9-11.

    If Clinton had done his job, Bush wouldn't have needed to make any changes to prevent 9-11.

    Foreign policy of the Bill Clinton administration - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Indeed, Clinton did a lot to fight terrorism.

    Shrub before 9-11? Not too much.

    Actually both made some efforts - Congress was willing to put for more $$$ toward security after 9/11 and global cooperation in sharing knowledge about terrorists activities increased after 9/11.

    BTW, I guess Obama deserves credit like GWB for no international terrorists attacks on his watch.

    Actually, every recent president before 9/11 is guilty of not doing the most obvious thing that could have prevented 9/11.

    Banning all knives and sharp objects from being allowed on planes would have prevented 9/11 and it is just plain old common sense.

    Hell, George Carlin had a bit about all the crazy the **** you could take on an airplane which made no sense.

    really? you want to side with thunder on any issue?


    his words: 9-11 brought about much needed changes. well blow me down, if changes were needed after 9-11 they were needed before 9-11. why didn't Clinton make them when he was in charge?

    1993 - The first World Trade Center bombing
    1995 - Attempted crashing of plane on White House
    1995 - Oklahoma City bombing
    1996 - Atlanta Olympics bombing
    1996 - Khobar Towers bombing - Saudi Arabia
    1998 - U.S. Embassy bombings Kenya/Tanzania
    2000 - USS Cole Bombing - Yemen

    but I guess all those attacks never happened, it's just my opinion that they happened as usual, you

    ahh...so no more attacks by international terrorists upon the homeland?

    not a bad record.

    too bad Clinton wasn't still in office during 2001, or 9-11 would have been prevented.

    again, perhaps if Bush had not dropped the ball 9-11 would not have occured.

    the facts are clear: Bush made terrorism much less of a priority than it had been during the Clinton administration. 9-11 woke Bush up to his fatal errors.
