Khobar towers were bombed in 1996—under Clinton’s watch! My son was there, so I remember that.
Glad you son was ok. I forgot what the liberals were crying about with President Reagan. Point is they could have done something and didn’t even with both the House and Senate. They feel that because they let President Reagan off the hook, we should show the same fairness to President Obama.
If there’s nothing to hide, why would they care?
Cause there IS something.
Democrats are going to whine about something they are stuck in the victim mode.
Khobar Towers was 1992. Clinton refused to move the barrier back. A truck bomb blew out the front of the building.
They begged for protection.
It was a Ben G deal.
