Nancy Soderberg, in an interview with Bill O’Reilly, made the claim that President Clinton tried on several occasions to take out Osama Bin Laden. She said in the interview that, “President Clinton actually acted preemptively against Bin Laden repeatedly, including taking out a chemical weapons factory in Sudan.” Now, I’m not an expert in national defense or in military intelligence but I am an expert in deciphering BS. Luckily, she made this false claim of Clinton "repeatedly" going after Bin Laden on the O'Reilly Factor because if she made it on CNN or the Daily Show she would have been allowed to get away with it. O’Reilly cut her off in mid-lie and explained the truth to her. “Nancy Look, if you want to believe that President Clinton did everything he could to neutralize Bin Laden and Al Qaeda, as they were openly operating in Afghanistan- all our satellite intelligence saw what they were doing- if you want to believe that you’re free to believe it; but it isn’t true No serious analyst believes it and that’s the record.” The United States Government, during the Clinton Administration, was very content with Americans being killed by the terrorist group Al Qaeda and in fact ignored assistance that was provided by the Sudanese government. The Clinton Administration even refused to take Intel about the Al Qaeda operatives responsible for the bombings of US embassies. I'll let the report from the European-Sudanese Public Affairs Council speak for itself:
ESPAC- "(1) Part of what was offered to the Clinton Administration was several hundred Sudanese files on al-Qaeda and its members. (2) The Administration also passed up the opportunity of interrogating two al-Qaeda members who had clearly been involved in the 1998 bombings of the U.S. embassies in east Africa. In keeping with its very questionable Sudan policy (3), the Clinton Administration rejected all of Sudan’s repeated offers. The implications of this studied indifference are clear. As 'Vanity Fair' stated: "September 11 might have been prevented if the U.S. had accepted Sudan's offers to share its intelligence files on Osama bin Laden and the growing al-Qaeda files." It had also earlier been revealed that in addition to offering the Clinton Administration intelligence on al-Qaeda, the Sudanese government had in 1996 also offered to extradite Osama bin-Laden - just as Khartoum had extradited the international terrorism known as "Carlos the Jackal" to France.(4)This offer was also rejected by the Clinton Administration."
So, as you can see, my contention that the incompetence and the terrorist-appeasement of the Clinton Administration led, in large part to 9/11, is most definitely true. There is no doubt in my mind that if the Clinton Administration would have taken a proactive approach to combat terrorism and did its duty to protect the American People, 9/11 would not have happened. And, for you liberals, the war in Iraq would not have happened. [The list of Al Qaeda Attacks on the US under Clinton]. ESPAC- "[And] for all the attempts by his advisers to downplay the sincerity of the Sudanese offers, the simple fact is that former President Clinton displayed considerable courage in describing the refusal to accept Sudan’s 1996 offer as "the biggest mistake" of his presidency. Rather than desperately trying to distance themselves from their role in Clinton’s "biggest mistake", his national security and foreign affairs team should have the courage to admit that their advice to the president was simply wrong." Sorry Bush-haters; Bill Clinton is to blame for many of the global problems we are facing today, not to mention a horribly worse President than George W. Bush.
