Clinton was too busy playing golf, chasing skirts and prepping for photo ops to
be bothered with defending our nation.
What haunted me more than anything else was that [President Clinton] refused to
make a decision. Human lives were at stake – the lives of American service
members and the lives of our allies who opposed Saddam at our behest and were
now under attack. At a time when America’s honor and grander principles were
being challenged and the world was watching our every move… the president was
watching golf. ...I approached the president and said, “Sir, our aircraft are
ready, bombs loaded, and waiting for your command…His reply destroyed my faith
in him as commander-in-chief and convinced me that the greatest security risk to
the United States was none other than…the president himself.
— Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson, USAF (Ret.), author of “Dereliction
of Duty: The Eyewitness Account of How Bill Clinton Compromised America’s
National Security,” recalling his three different attempts to pull Clinton
away from watching the Presidents’ Cup long enough to give the go-ahead to
bomb Iraq on Sept. 13, 1996. With lives hanging in the balance, Clinton, all
three times, replied that he would deal with it later.
Even as the second anniversary of September 11 arrives, the Left is still
tirelessly re-scripting this ultimate legacy of the Clinton-Gore Administration:
The gross negligence and complete dereliction of duty of Bill Clinton in
preventing the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on American soil. For
this reason, Clinton’s role on September 11, and why he must be held
accountable for his blood-guiltiness, can never be overemphasized.
Undoubtedly, our nation has paid a heavy price for Clinton’s backing down in
response to murderous despots during his own criminal reign. In other words,
during his calamitous tenure as president of the greatest country in the world,
Clinton had shown that national security was never his top priority.
In fact, more terrorist attacks occurred on Clinton’s watch, both inside and
outside of U.S. borders, than during any other presidential administration in
-- The 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed 6 and injured 1,000
-- The 1993 Mogadishu firefight that killed 18 U.S. soldiers
-- The 1995 Oklahoma City terrorist attack on the federal building by American
extremists that killed 168, wounding several hundred others
-- The 1995 Saudi Arabia car bomb that killed 5 U.S. military personnel
-- The 1996 Khobal Towers bombing that killed 19 U.S. soldiers, wounding 515
-- The 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in Africa that killed 231 citizens,
12 Americans and injured 5,000
-- The 2000 USS Cole attack in Yemen that killed 17 U.S. sailors, wounding 39
With each terrorist attack, Clinton went before the American people and promised
that “those responsible would be hunted down and punished.” However, we now
know that nothing came of Clinton’s empty promises but spineless, politically
driven, Wag-the-Dog diversions.
In all – including Clinton’s culpability in opening the door to Sept. 11,
2001 when he turned down three offers to have Usama bin Laden arrested as well
as several other deliberate national security bungles – global terrorists
murdered over 3,000 of our own citizens (which includes the Sept. 11 atrocities)
during the Clinton-Gore years.
According to a Wall Street Journal’s September 9 Opinionjournal.com editorial,
the 3,000+ people killed to date as a result of Clinton’s recklessness is
nearly eight times the number of those who have died fighting back in Iraq.
In reality, during the September 11 attacks, Clinton gave 19 barbaric hijackers
over two years to plan these atrocities, when they illegally slipped into the
U.S. under Clinton and Gore’s much-relaxed airport security and immigration
policies. Because when it came to fighting terrorism and keeping his vows to
protect us, Clinton was too busy playing golf, chasing skirts and prepping for
photo ops to be bothered.
Ultimately, Clinton, who probably thought he, too, could get 72 virgins by
appeasing bin Laden and Saddam Hussein, failed miserably in his phony wars
From allowing the slaughter of nearly one million people in Rwanda and over
2,000 in Kosovo, to permitting 150 bin Laden supporters to board planes en route
to Quatar, the fact remains that September 11, 2001 will always be what
collectively defines the legacy of Bill Clinton, whose treacherous policies
allowed Hussein and bin Laden to rise to power.
While the leftists in the media continue to show endless joy in tallying the
daily deaths of our troops in Iraq under the Bush Administration, they have
willfully whitewashed the many intelligence and security breaches that Clinton
wrought on our nation.
In fact, for the past 10 years, while Clinton’s blatant treason has been
thoroughly documented and accurately catalogued by some of the most respected
national security experts and former Clinton officials, the leftist media to
this day still refuse to hold Clinton personally responsible for the murders of
our own countrymen two years ago.
What’s more, while the Bush Administration has taken a strong stance against
global terrorism and has systematically thwarted over 100 known Al-Qaeda-plotted
attacks from reaching American soil, Bill Clinton still enjoys the free ride the
leftist media have given him for eight years of national defense negligence.
Although Clinton even partially admitted his guilt, saying, “It was the worst
mistake of my presidency” in letting bin Laden go, the leftist media still
look the other way.
To further illustrate Clinton’s culpability for the September 11 terrorist
attacks, United Press International reported on September 17, 2001 that Clinton
hushed up a 1994 Federal Report warning of hijack attacks.
In an exclusive story written just six days after the Sept. 11 attacks, the 1994
federal report (called “Terror 2000”) warned of possible terrorist strikes,
including how hijackers could use airliners to hit landmarks such as the
Pentagon or White House.
UPI reporter Pam Hess reported that the Clinton administration never released
“Terror 2000” to the public, “purportedly because of concerns in the State
Department it would cause panic.”
In fact, Hess wrote that the report not only “outlined the changing face of
terrorism but also seemed to predict the scope and timing of the attacks carried
out against the World Trade Center and Pentagon." “Targets such as the
World Trade Center not only provide the requisite casualties but because of
their symbolic nature provide more bang for the buck,” Hess wrote. “In order
to maximize their odds for success, terrorist groups will likely consider
mounting multiple, simultaneous operations with the aim of overtaxing a
government’s ability to respond, as well as to demonstrate their
professionalism and reach."
In a related matter involving Clinton’s complete willingness to appease
terrorists rather than confront them, according to WorldNetDaily.com reporter
Paul Sperry, Clinton exported NSA-ducking phone, high-tech encryption devices to
Syria, which has been a hotbed for international terrorist networks. Sperry
reported that the 19 Islamic terrorists who plotted to strike at America’s
nerve centers in New York and Washington “spent months, if not years,
researching, planning and coordinating the surprise attacks,” all on
In fact, Peter M. Leitner, a senior strategic trade adviser at the Defense
Department, who reviews commercial license applications for exports of some of
the most sophisticated military-related technology, told Sperry the day after
the terrorist attacks: “The technology that would allow these terrorists to
mask their communications was given away, hand over fist, by the Clinton
Still another example of Clinton’s compromise with our nation’s security
infrastructure occurred in October 1997 when the Clinton administration falsely
certified the People’s Republic of China as a nuclear nonproliferator, despite
overwhelming evidence to the contrary. “Clinton officials went so far, sources
say,” wrote Insight magazine’s Scott Wheeler on Aug. 25, “as threatening
to fire a senior defense analyst unless he changed his analysis, which was based
on the overwhelming preponderance of all available intelligence sources that
Beijing was proliferating nuclear technology and materials to rogue nations.”
In fact, these recent revelations concerning the Clinton “false
certification” come on the heels of the incessant Democrat attacks on
President Bush for allegedly manipulating intelligence to support the war in
Iraq (and what Clinton deliberately did in 1998).
But, Wheeler wrote, a senior Department of Defense analyst, speaking on
condition of anonymity, said, “Since the Clinton administration ignored
intelligence warnings and issued the 'false certification' of China as a
nonproliferating nation, “there has been undeniable evidence of transfers of
nuclear technology from the People’s Republic of China to North Korea and
Iran.” "Both North Korea and Iran are considered by the Bush
administration to be rogue nations already in possession of nuclear weapons or
on the brink of having them.”
According to a 1999 Newsweek report, CIA sources said “terrorists received
money and passports from Iran and that Iranian agents were casing American
facilities in 1995.”
In addition, Newsweek also reported that despite the evidence, lawmakers were
concerned that Iran will go unpunished. “My big fear,” said Kansas Senator
Sam Brownback, “is we won’t pursue it because of some rapprochement with
Iran.” Obviously, Clinton knew about the NSA intercept and never said a word.
“Here it was the Saudis and [President] Clinton who protected Iran from the
fury of American citizens,” Newsweek reported.
Indeed, Clinton left the door wide open to global terrorism because he was too
cowardly and self-absorbed to care about protecting this country.
Despite criticism from arrogant, anti-American Democrats who have proven to be
extremely soft on national defense, Bush is to be commended. But undeniably, at
the same time Bush restored our U.S. military strength, Bush also inherited
God forbid we should ever have another Bill Clinton – a spineless sycophant
who easily cowers to global terrorists, at the expense of the safety and
security of Americans.
That’s the difference between George W. Bush and Clinton: Bush will not back
down nor relent to our enemies like Clinton and his worthless propagators in the
liberal media have done.
As the Left manipulates the truth about September 11 as a deliberate attempt to
make Americans forget Clinton’s culpability, this Thursday should be a
reminder to those who are guilty of unleashing global despotism – the Clinton
To this day, the Left collectively refuses to criticize Clinton’s bogus,
Wag-the-Dog bombings that went on without question from the liberal media hacks,
as well as Clinton’s top military officials. For example, fellow traitor Gen.
Clark, who proved to be a willing pawn in Clinton’s political PR games in
order to further his own military career.
One of the many blaring examples of how the liberal media shielded Clinton from
criticism in his spurious wars came during his address to the nation on Dec. 16,
1998, where CNN’s lack of fault-finding with Clinton’s military plan was
-- The president said Iraq’s refusal to cooperate with U.N. weapons inspectors
presented a threat to the entire world.
-- “Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the
world with nuclear arms, poison gas or biological weapons,” Clinton said.
-- Operation Desert Fox, a strong, sustained series of attacks, will be carried
out over several days by U.S. and British forces, Clinton said.
-- “Earlier today I ordered America’s armed forces to strike military and
security targets in Iraq. They are joined by British forces,” Clinton said.
-- “Their mission is to attack Iraq’s nuclear, chemical and biological
weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors,” said
-- Clinton also stated that, while other countries also had weapons of mass
destruction, Hussein is in a different category because he has used such weapons
against his own people and against his neighbors. 'Without delay, diplomacy or
-- The Iraqi leader was given a final warning six weeks ago, Clinton said, when
Baghdad promised to cooperate with U.N. inspectors at the last minute just as
U.S. warplanes were headed its way…
Now, compare that to CNN’s transparent hostility towards Bush’s dealings
with Iraq in the following headlines (especially concerning the uranium
controversy): CNN’s July 9, 2003 headline: “Storm over U.S. Iraq
The first three paragraphs read:
A political firestorm is erupting in the U.S. over President Bush’s assertion
that Iraq sought to buy nuclear material from Africa.
The White House has admitted that assertion – made by Bush during the annual
State of the Union address last January – was based on faulty information.
The chairman of the opposition Democratic Party is accusing the Bush
administration of a cover up and senior Senate democrats are calling for a full
CNN not only refers to Clinton, in a citation, as “President Clinton,” the
caption under Bush’s picture said that Bush “made the allegation about
Iraq…” Also, no Democrat ever called for a full investigation of Clinton
going to war on false intelligence.
• CNN’s July 10, 2003 headline: “Bush defends decision on Iraqi war.”
Subheading: Democrats want discredited uranium claim probed
• CNN’s July 12, 2003 headline: “Bush stands by CIA after Iraq mistake.”
Subheading: Tenet admits error in agency’s approval of president’s
In the above CNN stories, not only did they discredit Bush, they also
highlighted Saddam’s calls for revenge and the acid attacks leveled by
imbecilic Democrats. To Clinton propagandists like CNN, Clinton’s wars were
justified; Bush’s wars were not.
Despite Bush using the exact same arguments Clinton used to bomb Iraq in 1998,
Bush has been attacked relentlessly just because Bush, a conservative Republican
president, was willing to finish the job that Clinton should have seen through
to the end. Only Clinton didn’t want the political fallout that the Left is
trying to heap on Bush.
As a result, the disgraced, impeached, disbarred, accused rapist-felon, has
never endured the fury from his fellow leftist pals in the media and down the
political aisle. Instead, Clinton opted to let someone else take the fall –
namely George W. Bush.
That being said, Clinton’s political and personal ambitions eventually trumped
any and all concerns for our nation’s safety and security, which ultimately
came at a terrible price. Unlike Clinton, Bush has the resolve to annihilate our
enemies and keep them at bay.
Unlike Clinton, Bush has taken seriously the same presidential oath Clinton
swore by in Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution. Clearly, Clinton
broke this sacred oath to “preserve, protect and defend” us when he allowed
our enemies total access to our borders, infrastructure and monetary system.
Bush, on the other hand, has kept that promise, despite the acerbic attacks from
anti-American war protesters and the equally treasonous Democratic Party, who
brazenly hates this country and the Judeo-Christian values that have established
In the end, Clinton proved to be a paper tiger who practiced tough talk with no
action. Instead of being proactive like Bush, Clinton was reactive and it
eventually cost innocent lives. When he did launch his phony wars, Clinton, Gen.
Wesley Clark and other administration officials ran with their tail between
their legs; all without one peep of criticism from such leftist media enablers
In fact, media leftists like CNN loved Clinton’s appeasement of our enemies.
CNN should know: Their top news executive admitted in April to covering up 12
years of Iraqi atrocities in order to maintain a Baghdad bureau, while their own
correspondents were being subjected to torture (which also went unreported).
This should have sent up red flags as to what Clinton knew about the cover-up,
since he’s a close friend of Ted Turner.
Now, Clinton, who was brought up last year on war crimes by the International
Criminal Court – along with Gen. Wesley Clark (who actually had tanks pointed
directly at our own unsuspecting U.S. troops), Madelyn Albright and 19 others,
must answer for compromising our national security that could have prevented in
the Sept. 11 atrocities.
With the willing assistance of the leftist media, Clinton and his willing
derelicts have the innocent blood of over 3,000 of our citizens on their hands.
It’s time they be held accountable for the real reason we had to win a just
war – and why we had to fight the enemies Clinton refused to conquer.
Shortly after the devastation of Sept. 11, 2001, in his typical defiant mode,
Clinton blamed America for the Sept. 11 attacks. Clinton claimed that Sept. 11
happened because America mistreated Native Americans and slaves “when we
looked the other way,” and “are still paying a price.”
No, the price we are still paying is eight years of Clinton holding this nation
hostage because he chose to look the other way by not stopping terrorism, which
could have prevented the Sept. 11 atrocities from ever happening.
In the end, Clinton had the opportunity to stave off the bloodshed of September
11 but didn’t, which will always and forever be his ultimate legacy.
So this is the type of person you guys want at the helm of the us?These are
facts unlike stooge anons riculous youtube videos.Looks to me more than getting
his dick sucked...pathetic people..lol
