Skip to comments.Documents Show State Department Warned Clinton About Bin Laden
Posted on 08/17/2005 7:01:00 PM PDT by kellynla
WASHINGTON The State Department warned the Clinton administration in July 1996 that Usama bin Laden's (search) move to Afghanistan would give him more fertile ground to spread radical Islam, according to newly declassified documents.
The documents, released by the legal advocacy group Judicial Watch on Wednesday, say that bin Laden would feel comfortable moving from Sudan to Afghanistan, which "has become an even more desirable location for extremists. Afghanistan may be an ideal haven as long as bin Laden can continue to run his businesses and financial networks."

There is an unseen hand here guiding this story and Able Danger and I'm having trouble figuring out who it is..
What if Sandy stole something else even more damning.
Just pray it's not Klayman. The kiss of death.
What is strange is these new documents could have been declassified last year....why was it DONE right in the middle of Able Danger breaking to the surface.
O'Reilly covered this tonight.
He asked Warren Christopher to respond and/or appear on his show and Christopher refused.
the other clown Richard "Nutbar" Clarke is also mysteriously quiet, you all remember he denied in his book that that there was any "heads up" on bin Laden...liar, liar, pants of fire!
I've been reading your posts on different threads about WHO, and WHY now. I'm following your posts with much interest. I agree with you. Someone is making a move now. WHO. And WHY???
Who do you think it is?
Pukin Dog could be right....this is could be a Dem operation to get at Hillary thru Bill.
My opinion is that Willie has had a secret Swiss bank account since the Soviets set it up for him in 1963. Saudi and Iraqi money flowed into that account all through the mid and late 90s.
We need to revisit Foster's trips to Switzerland. He would have traveled under a diplomatic passport in whatever name, and would have been able to make deposits/withdrawals at Willie's whim.
Sure, Berger stole proof. But, there has to be other detail and honest people who will help put Hillie and Willie in jail!
Its a tough one.... as I said it could be anyone..
Yeah, I know Judicial Watch is responsible for this part. I was talking more about the *Mr. Big* of Who and WHY NOW. And I owe JW an apology for my previous reply. THIS is an important part of the puzzle.
I was happy to see O'Reilly cover this tonight and the CIA man he had on (can't remember his name) was good too. However I was very disappointed with Chris Wallace, who was subbing for Britt Hume (please come back Britt) tonight and there was not one mention of Able Danger on Special Report. To top things off during the panel they were discussing gas prices (and not Able Danger) and Wallace actually suggested we might be headed for a recession. For a moment I thought I had accidentally changed the station to CBS or something.
Too many "rainmakers" could be exposed as being incompetent or instrumental in putting the nation at risk and covering up much that was done by Islamists and denied.
The Clinton administration moved forward, much of the stupid and ignorant practices of the Carter Administration..
Clinton/Carter will go down as perhaps the two most disastrous administrations in our history...
Kerry doesn't have access to this kind of info.
Maybe Richards is behind this???? He better not fly for while ? ? ?
well you probably already know my take on the Clintoons...
they've got one of those "J Edgar Hoover" insurance policies(copies of the FBI files) which keeps them out of prison...
I don't have a clue. That's why I'm following Dog's posts. But it must be someone who desperately wants to derail hillary's ambitions. The question is, does John Kerry have the man-berries to do it? And could Teddy Kennedy have stayed sober long enough to actually have devised this plan?
"For a moment I thought I had accidentally changed the station to CBS or something."
well ya know the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree...
That's a good one, an 'honest politician'........ (slaps his knee)
Burger under oath before joint Congressional committee with use immunity might break a logjam.
Berger is a good loyal Clinton lackey...he would fling himself off a tall building before he would give up Bubba.
"Burger under oath before joint Congressional committee with use immunity might break a logjam."
well ya know Burglar copped to a misdemeanor for "cooperation"...
however we still don't know " the what, for whom and why?"
and sentencing has been postponed.
As tempting as this possibility is to make me want to believe in karma, it's never gonna happen.
The Clintons have some method of enforcing loyalty that puts La Cosa Nostra to shame.
It'll be a miracle if history gives anything close to an accurate account of the role the Clintons are playing in the destruction of this nation while getting a total pass from the many who believe they walk on water, let alone that justice will be served in their lifetimes.
This could be part of a squeeze play to get him talking.Just a thought,I havn't followed all of the intricate details.
And he'll have full security clearance just in time to help put the DemoDons back in the White House in 2008.
I heard Berger copped a plea agreement with the prosecutor,but the judge has not yet set his punishment. As I understand this is to be done in September. Is that correct or incorrect? Anyway, if that is correct, Sandy might not want to do hard time if the ABLE Danger and State department documents hold up his sentencing. I cannot understand the loyalty anyone gives to the Clintons. Honor among theives has never lasted. Now Bill has no sword of Damocles to hold over their heads, unless it is the hope of Hillary.
I hate to even suggest this, but Karl Rove et. al? The President has been very quiet about this subject. I haven't even heard a bland quote from him about this. /tinfoil
This could be part of a squeeze play to get him talking. Just a thought, I haven't followed all of the intricate details.
I had the thought also. We all heard the reports of the scheduled sentencing. It seemed he had a pretty straight-forward deal struck. The delay suggested to me there was something wrong with the plea bargain, either in his willingness to cooperate or with the discovery that he had misrepresented something. Or, maybe the judge needed some time off for the summer.
He was among those expecting to be considered for SecState in a Kerry Administration. He isn't going to get in anybody's cabinet now. But he could get a position not subject to Senate confirmation in a Hillary administration, maybe even a pardon - - do you pardon a misdemeanor?
"I heard Berger copped a plea agreement with the prosecutor,but the judge has not yet set his punishment. As I understand this is to be done in September. Is that correct or incorrect?"
Correctomundo! The deal was a guilty plea to a misdemeanor, 10K dollar fine and loss of his security clearance for 3 years(just in time for the 2008)
I tell ya, these Clintoonistas are covered under the "J Edgar Hoover" insurance policy held by Bubba & wife!
The copies of those FBI files have sure come in handy...
Or maybe the judge is locked in a closet in a certain house in Chappaqua!;)
Do we have any hope that the judge ruling in the case might say, "Now, hold on there....not so fast"?
Pardon him, then make him SC Chief Justice. And never blink.
The unseen hand moving this story is very busy.
Clinton claimed he could have got Binny...if he had had more time....then gets it been the eyes this morning with this State Dept release.
Kean and Hamliton of the 9/11 commission come forward last week and pooh pooh Weldons claim on ABLE DANGER....then Shaffer steps forward and pulls the rug out from under them.
Then Deb Orin writes her column detailing the memo Mary Jo wrote back in 1996 pleading to remove the WALL...effectively muzzling Gorelick.
Exactly, Dog. And she's hardly a republican hack. She holds gravitas with the dems. There's a word that's going to come back to haunt them!
"Do we have any hope that the judge ruling in the case might say, "Now, hold on there....not so fast"?"
if you're referring to Fat Sandy's sentencing, the judge has already postponed sentencing until next month...
Its to the point I can't wait to turn on the computer in the morning to see what other shoe has dropped.
I think Burglar is "covered" under the Clintoon's "J Edgar Hoover" insurance policy
I knew those copies of the FBI files would come in handy. LOL
No, what I am asking is, is there a chance he might not accept the deal Sandy copped with the prosecutor? In other words the judge would say, that plea agreement is unacceptible, your trial is set for..........
Remember Mr. Clarke?
He wrote a book.
He testified before the commission.
Yet, he did not have this information?
Either he was really less important or a HUGE LIAR.
Same here. Whoever this is, is playing a brilliant cat-and-mouse game of chess. That automatically leaves out kerry and kennedy.
