ROTTERDAM, The Netherlands -- Former U.S. President Bill Clinton says he had plans in the early 1990s to attack and destroy North Korea's nuclear facilities after the secretive communist state was found to be producing weapons-grade plutonium.
At the time, he said, North Korea had plans to produce between six and eight nuclear weapons per year.

Monica blew, NK nukes grew!
Sure he did.
So once again, another Clinton could should of would have moment. YET again, what DID he do other then TALK about it? Same old Left, they figure if they TALK about a problem they are doing something
When Clinton Lied,
but he didn't do it
1994: North Korea, United States sign agreement in Geneva, North pledges to freeze, eventually dismantle, nuclear weapons program in exchange for help building two power-producing nuclear reactors.
Sept. 17, 1999: U.S. President Bill Clinton agrees to first major easing of economic sanctions against North Korea since Korean War's end in 1953.
Unbelievable that some will call for more negotiations.

Man, he had all kinds of PLANS, didn't he?
Too bad he never pullled the trigger on any of them.
But he said he was busy trying to kill OBL. Which is it?
Of course he did. He's the king of hindsight.
Slick Willy was too busy trying to get his willy into Kathleen Willy.
Ha ha . . .
So what stopped him?
The Clinton re-write of history continues. Too bad for him his media buds no longer have a monopoly in controlling information.
he trahd, he trahd ree-al hard.
Yeah he did have a plan to do this. It is a true statement. But then the ultra smart Clinton decided to have Jimmy Carter go negotiate instead.
He always was easily distracted.
He did in fact have a plan. This is true. I am no fan of Clinton. They came very close to all out war. The US military in South Korea along with the US Embassy there was in the final stages of a massive evac plan for US civilians out of Seoul.
Sure he did. But Jimmuh talked him into providing the North Koreans with a free nuclear plant, instead, so they could make bombs more easily.
Anyway, It's hard to concentrate on minor matters like nuclear weapons in the hands of madmen, when you have more important things in mind, like whom you're planning to rape or murder next.
The plans were somewhat publicized at the time.
Except the hot dates with the interns.
he sounds like the kids who "did his homework but left it at home or the dog ate it". my response as a teacher, so what?
easy for him to say, does he have to get clearance to disclose what comes out of his mouth?
"I tried to destroy those nuclear facilities and came closer than anyone has since. So I tried and I failed."
those plans must have been cancelled when his regime decided to give them more nuclear capablities.
i wonder if this was before or after MADelin Halfbright toasted Kim Jong Il and called him a reasonable man
I was there in the region at the time.
Nobody can tell me otherwise.
I despise Clinton, but stateside politics cannot trump actual history. Clinton and Perry had the plan. Okinawa and US bases on the mainland of Japan, were getting into position.
The picture was October 23, 2000. Albright said they were much closer than before her visit. After Bush took office, Albright said: "Korea cheated".
So what stopped him?
North Korea promised that they would end their nuclear program and respect Madelaine Albright in the morning.
was he going to bite the reactor's lip?
More "plans" ? What the hell good are plans if you never act on them? Coulda, woulda, shoulda. He wants us to believe he "thought about" doing a lot of things. Big deal!
Was he going to bomb them when Madeline Albright was over there sucking up to Jong???
I've had plans to become a millionaire. I just haven't done it yet.
Clinton reminds me of the drunk who mumbles in the bar, "I coulda been sombody," while raving about his salad days.
Why do we always hear Bill had plans yet nothing came of his plans? Shaking my head here...I would love to never hear the names Clinton, Kennedy or Carter again. Theres many others too, but I need my lunch. lol
"We actually drew up plans to attack North Korea and to destroy their reactors and we told them we would attack unless they ended their nuclear program," Clinton told a security forum
If this is true, does anyone believe a Former PResident ought to be publicizing it? That and his claim to have "Contracted with others to kill Bin LadeN"
He sure had a lot of "plans".
LOL! I'm going to use that!
Jimmy Carter stopped him I believe.
Not sure this story is particularly good for us. Why didn't Bush bomb it when the Koreans said they were starting it back up?
Just like he "had plans" to kill Osama bin Laden, "had plans" to deal with Saddam Hussein, "had plans" to reform social security, "had plans" to stop drug tafficking, "had plans" to end poverty, "had plans" to bring about world peace...
He had all of these plans, but not much ever got done. Except him.
I guess his plans to "do" Monica took precedence.
He's a perfect example of a brain on drugs.
Clinton had lots of plans, he never acted on any except those that benefitted him directly. Like Monica.
He had plans to cure AIDS.
He had plans to end world hunger.
He had plans to cure cancer.
He had plans for everything.
More BS from the Clintoons.
