    you clearly have not been following the conversation.

    Oscar blaims Clinton for allowing the USS Cole to be attacked.

    What happens in other sovereign nations is beside the point.

    The 1993 attack on the World Trade Center was an attack carried out on our own soil, by foreign terrorists—the very first of its kind. I can't condemn the Clinton Administration or the Bush Sr. Administration for failing to prevent it. Up to that point, I don't think anyone could have realized that we were that vulnerable to such an attack. Most of our clashes with terrorists had previously taken place on foreign soil, on the other side of the world from our own.

    The Clinton Administration's reaction to the 1993 attack was pathetic and inadequate and ineffective, and is largely responsible for allowing these same terrorists the opportunity to attack us again, with considerably more success, twelve years later.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    so ineffective that international or even domestic terrorist groups failed to attack the US homeland again during the rest of the Clinton Administration.

    ..and then Shrub showed up, and 8 months later we had 9-11.

    Thanks Shrub.
