On Aug. 7, 1999, the one-year anniversary of the U.S. African embassy bombings that killed 257 people and injured 5,000, President Bill Clinton reaffirmed his commitment to the victims of terrorism, vowing that he "will not rest until justice is done." Four days later, while Congress was on summer recess, the White House quietly issued a press release announcing that the president was granting clemency to 16 imprisoned members of FALN. What began as a simple paragraph on the AP wire exploded into a major controversy...

Initial reports stated that Mrs. Clinton supported the clemencies, but when public reaction went negative she changed course, issuing a short statement three weeks after the clemencies were announced. The prisoners' delay in refusing to renounce violence "speaks volumes," she said. The Clintons were caught in an awkward predicament of their own making. The president had ignored federal guidelines for commutation of sentences, including the most fundamental: The prisoners hadn't actually asked for clemency.
"The prisoners hadn't actually asked for clemency"? OMG
Debra Burlingame is incredible. I would love to see her run for political office.
Written by Debra Burlingame....her brother was a pilot who was killed on 9/11?
That duo is so blatantly corrupt it is breathtaking. To call them grifters is an understatement. They are vile pukes.
Well, after all, they do vote Democrat.
The Clintons MUST be kept from ever returning to the White House as occupants. Maybe now that it has a new messiah (Obambi) the MSM will start to bring to the light of day the various and sundry examples of where the Clintons screwed America and the American people.
Yes. She is a great counterbalance to the umm...”Jersey Girls”.
Unlike them, she has a message to convey, and it isn’t “we are all victims looking for money”.

I will never understand how these two scum have gotten away with so much. It makes me fear for our country. It also makes me wonder how they can hold their heads up.
That bitch is lying her fat ass off when she says she wasn't involved!
It was all about her damn senate bid, you know that woman micromanages every second of her life!
The next day, White House Deputy Chief of Staff Maria Echaveste sent an email to White House Counsel Charles Ruff, who was handling the clemency issue, supporting Mr. Farrow's view, saying, "Chuck -- Jeff's right about this -- very hot issue."Another adviser in the Working Group, Mayra Martinez-Hernandez, noted that releasing the prisoners would be "fairly easy to accomplish and will have a positive impact among strategic communities in the U.S. (read, voters)."

Bill Clinton runs for Congress (1974), while a fugitive from justice under Public Law 90-40.
Bill Clinton runs for Arkansas Attorney General (1976), while a fugitive from justice.
Bill Clinton receives pardon on January 21, 1977, from Carter.
Bill Clinton FIRST PARDONED FEDERAL FELON ever to serve as President of the United States.
All these facts come from Freedom of Information requests, public laws, and various books that have been published, and have not been refuted by Clinton.
After the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, President Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1995 bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed five U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing in Saudi Arabia, which killed 19 and injured 200 U.S. military personnel; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 1998 bombing of U.S. embassies in Africa, which killed 224 and injured 5,000; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
After the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole, which killed 17 and injured 39 U.S. sailors; Clinton promised that those responsible would be hunted down and punished.
Maybe if Clinton had kept those promises, a n estimated 3,000 people in New York and Washington, DC. that are now dead would be alive today.
AN INTERESTING QUESTION: This question was raised on a Philly radio call-in show. Without casting stones, it is a legitimate question.
There are two men, both extremely wealthy.
One develops relatively cheap software and gives billions of dollars to charity.
The other sponsors terrorism.
That being the case, why was it that the Clinton Administration spent more money chasing down Bill Gates over the eight years in office, than Osama bin Laden?
THINK ABOUT IT!
It is a strange turn of events
Hillary gets $8 Million for her forth coming memoir.
Bill gets about $12 Million for his memoir yet to be w ritten.
This from two people who spent 8 years being unable to Recall anything about past events while under oath.

P.S. Please forward this to as many people as you can! We don’t want this woman to even THINK of running for President.
Don't hold back, tell us how you really feel.
Yes, he was. She is a great spokeswoman for those murdered on 9/11.
And yet people are gladly pulling the lever for her. I don’t care that she’s having trouble with Obama. That she’s even got the support she has tells you things are truly horrible.
Why these two aren’t behind bars boggles the mind.
