Intelligence: A highly critical CIA report details the spy agency's failings during the 1990s in preventing the 9/11 attacks. But as the report makes clear, the Clinton administration also deserves a big piece of the blame.

The wall she built to help prevent the detection of all of the red Chinese money finding its way into DNC coffers.
Insert a hearty "No $*** Sherlock" here.
This one can filed under the Duh! heading...
There are some pretty shocking examples from Pakistan that have been slowly coming to light.
