Hillary came out to try and defend her husband’s inept effort to protect the U.S. from terrorism and UBL. Hillary stood tall for her man, and defended his actions. Now where have we heard say things like this before? Hmmmmmm….let’s see….Oh Yeah, here we go:
“I do believe that this is a battle,” the first lady said.
“Look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. The great story here for anybody willing to find it, write about it and explain it is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president,” Mrs. Clinton said.
The first lady called the sex and perjury allegations swirling around her husband part of an effort “to undo the results of two elections.”Source
Well we all know how that little Monica Lewinsky thing turned out don’t we Hillary?
So let’s come back to the present, and Hillary’s comments today.
“I think my husband did a great job in demonstrating that Democrats are not going to take these attacks,” Hillary Clinton said. “I’m certain that if my husband and his national security team had been shown a classified report entitled ‘Bin Laden Determined To Attack Inside the United States’ he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team.”
Okay, let’s review the truth shall we Hillary? Let’s see exactly what your husband said on Fox News:
Bill Clinton on Fox News Sunday:
And you ask me about terror and Al Qaeda with that sort of dismissive thing? When all you have to do is read Richard Clarke’s book to look at what we did in a comprehensive, systematic way to try to protect the country against terror.
The 9/11 Commission Report: Final Report of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon The United States - Richard Clarke - March 24, 2004
Despite our inability to locate Usama bin Ladin in one place long enough to launch an attack, I urged that we engage in a bombing campaign of al Qida facilities in Afghanistan. That option was deferred by the Principals Committee. Source
Transcript: Wednesday’s 9/11 Commission Hearings
Wednesday, March 24, 2004; 7:00 PM
GORTON: In August of 1998, did you recommend a longer-lasting military response or just precisely the one that, in fact, took place?
CLARKE: I recommended a series of rolling attacks against the infrastructure in Afghanistan. Every time they would rebuild it, I proposed that we blow it up again much like, in fact, we were doing in Iraq, where we had a rolling series of attacks on their air defense system.
Gorton: And shortly after that, you came up with the so-called Delenda Plan, as I understand it. And is our staff report accurate in saying that it had four principle approaches — diplomacy, covert action, various financial members and military action? Is that a reasonable summary?
CLARKE: Yes, sir.
GORTON: Also, is our staff accurate in saying that the strategy was never formally adopted, but that you were authorized in effect to go ahead with the first three, but not with the fourth?
CLARKE: Yes, sir.
GORTON: And at various times thereafter you did recommend specific military responses under specific circumstances, did you not?
CLARKE: Yes, sir.
GORTON: Each of which was rejected for one reason or another?
CLARKE: That’s correct.
Using lies to defend your husband’s lies? WRONG then Hillary! WRONG now!
But we do thank you for giving birth to the VRWC on January 27th, 1998.
