Skip to comments.9-11 Survivors Report on How Bill Clinton Left America Vulnerable to Terrorist Attacks
Posted on 04/08/2004 4:07:23 AM PDT by kristinn
As survivors of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the members of the D.C. Chapter of Free Republic feel entitled to issue this report. Many of us witnessed the attacks and their aftermath in person. Some of us were in New York City at the World Trade Center that day, others were at, near or just across the river from the Pentagon. (None of our chapter members witnessed the plane crash in Pennsylvania.)
The D.C. Chapter of Free Republic is an independent grassroots conservative organization founded in 1998. Every Saturday for the last 28 months of the Clinton administration, members of the D.C. Chapter stood outside the Clinton White House informing visitors, tourists, media and employees of the administration of the willful damage being done to Americas national security by President Clinton, First Lady Hillary Clinton, Vice President Gore and their myrmidons in and out of government.
The Bush administration, seven months in office at the time, deserves whatever criticism is due an incoming administration that had to clean up eight years of damage on many fronts left by the outgoing one. However, no one can accuse President Bush of the serious lapses in judgment and dereliction of duty committed by former President Clinton.
On his last days in office, al-Qaeda and Osama bin Laden were far from Bill Clintons mind. His priorities were copping a plea with prosecutor Robert Ray (a presidential first) that would keep him out of jail and wreaking his revenge on the American justice system with a pardoning fury that culminated in the pardon of international fugitive Marc Rich.
That Clinton ended his presidency on such a criminal-like note is not surprising to anyone who observed him objectively. This was a man who served himself first, last and always.
Who but a Democrat, can forget that Bill Clinton, while he talked on the telephone with Rep. Sonny Callahan regarding the congressmans concerns about the safety of our troops deployed to Bosnia, was receiving oral sex from Monica Lewinsky in the Oval Office study? In fact, getting serviced by Ms. Lewinsky while on the phone conducting official business with congressmen and others was a habit of Clintons.
Bill Clinton did not care that he had exposed the presidency to blackmail by a foreign power by engaging in at least seventeen phone sex calls with Monica Lewinsky on her unsecured line. Clinton laughed off concerns of a national security breach, telling Ms. Lewinsky that if they were blackmailed to say they were just making it up.
During the Clinton administration, the closest African-American woman to the president was White House secretary Betty Currie. It was to Ms. Currie whom Bill Clinton turned to facilitate and later cover-up his affair with Monica Lewinsky in the White House.
The dutiful Currie, in a manner reminiscent of the ante-bellum South, once locked herself in the bathroom while, just outside the door, Ms. Lewinsky performed oral sex on her boss, former Arkansas governor, Bill Clinton.
Clintons sex-obsessed nature became a national joke even as the nation was put in danger because of it. Of course Clintons nature was not a joke to the many women who accused him of rape and/or sexual assault like Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, among others.
During the period from 1997 to 1999, as Bill Clinton struggled to keep from being impeached and removed from office for perjury and obstruction of justice, and while he worked to keep a lid on the Chinagate scandal, al-Qaeda metastasized into a deadly international threat to America.
In 1998, while al-Qaeda plotted and bombed American targets, Bill Clinton held but two cabinet meetings: One to lie to his cabinet, the other to confess his lie after it was confirmed he allowed Monica Lewinsky to leave the White House with her blue dress covered in his semen after an oral sex session.
Rather than admitting his guilt and resigning from office like he should have, Bill Clinton fought those seeking to hold him accountable to the rule of law with more energy and determination than he ever did al-Qaeda.
National security lapses werent limited to Bill Clintons sex life. In his first term, Clinton took millions of dollars in illegal campaign donations. Much of those donations came from agents of communist China who were given extraordinary access to the government in exchange for their largesse.
The Chinagate scandal, which included American companies that bought favors from the Clinton administration that aided Chinas ICBMs, helped put the lie to Clintons boast that no nuclear missiles are pointed at Americas children under his watch. Toward the end of Clintons second term, Energy Secretary Bill Richardson admitted that China had about sixteen nuclear missiles targeted at America. Cold comfort when they repeatedly threatened to nuke Los Angeles as Bill Clinton slow-walked our missile defense system development.
Airline safety was compromised by Vice President Gores decision to not seek standards that could have made the September 11 plane hijackings more difficult, if not impossible. Naturally, that decision was followed by hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations by the airline industry to the Democrat party.
Terrorists had a great friend in the White House during the Clinton years. Members of the Marxist FALN terrorists were pardoned in 1999 to help Hillary Clintons bid for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Pat Moynihan.
Yasser Arafat played Bill Clinton like a sucker for years. It should be funny, but its not, that the terrorist Arafat has a worthless Nobel Peace Prize while Clinton doesnt.
Bill Clintons disregard for national security led him to completely lose his authorization card with nuclear launch codes. Clinton even lost the nuclear football when he stormed out of a 1999 NATO meeting in Washington, D.C. and was driven back to the White House without the military aide who carries the nuclear football. The aide had to walk the mean streets of our nations capital back to the White House.
That was not unusual for a man who nearly left his daughter, Chelsea, behind in Moscow while on a state visit, or for a man who took such poor care of the two dogs he owned as a governor and president, respectively, that they were both run over by cars.
It is not with joy that this report is issued. However, as survivors of September 11, we have watched the investigation into the governments handling of the terrorist threat devolve into a nasty partisan fight by the Democrat party and their proxies.
We know that the legacy of the leader of the Democrats during the 1990s was one of utter disregard for the national security of the United States that left us wide open to the September 11 attacks.

FWIW, you'll be taking our moral support with you.
I'll be stuck at work without even a radio to hear what goes on.
While Bill Clinton is the person who is directly responsible for what happened on 9/11, this country would be well advised to remember who the willing accomplices were who allowed Mr Clinton to continue his personal charade. 100% of them are democrats with names like, Begala, Paneta, Richardson, Reno, Wexler, Frank, Daschle, Gephart, and many, many more.....
Bill Clinton is not solely responsible for what happened......
