This is the first in a two-part series.
When chief 9-11 operative Mohamed Atta arrived in the United States in June 2000, he had good reason to believe not only that Al Gore would be the next president, but that he would also be one tough adversary.
For Attas benefactor, Osama bin Laden, this was just as well. He was spoiling for a fight, and his beef was with Clinton and Gore, not Texas governor George Bush.
Truth be told, the boys of summer had been annoying bin Laden for the last eight years. They had particularly irked him with their treatment of Iraq.
In fact, two of the three specific gripes in bin Ladens 1998 kill all Americans fatwa dealt with Iraq and Americas continuing aggression against the Iraqi people.
Just a week before that fatwa, President Clinton had piqued bin Laden by warning of the very kind of threat Iraq poses nowa rogue state with weapons of mass destruction, ready to use them or provide them to terrorists.
As to Al Gore, bin Laden knew he would be a tougher customer than his boss. In 1991, while Clinton waffled back in Arkansas, Gore was only one of ten Democratic senators to take to the Senate floor in support of the Gulf War resolution, which barely passed 52 to 47.

We would all be living in teepees and eating tofu by now.
Algore would still be trying to figure out how to respond to 9-11.
I kind of doubt that Osama bin Laden gave a damn about who the next President was going to be...
You can always tell the delusional mind that is so wrapped up in its own fantasy that it no longer can see reality.
Pray tell me, Mr. Cashill, how were you so close to Osama that the inner workings of his mind came so clearly to your eyes and ears?
This post should have a barf alert, if only for the title.
I stopped reading at the “boys of summer”...wtf?
What has Gore ever succeeded in? When the going gets tough he finds a way out. i.e.schools, military, school again and then he takes his father’s job? OH yeah, he’s a real leader. sarc.
I NEVER resort to name calling, but wishing that Al Gore had been in charge on 9/11 is the stupidest thought ever.
Links not working for me?!
Seems to be succeeding in making millions on his daffy idea that we, as humans, could ruin the earth! Grifter, I believe they call someone like him
Success at last!
Maybe I’m just being a partisan conservative here, but what would give a terrorist mastermind reason to think Al Gore would be a tough adversary? His boss was the one who ran from Mogadishu - and we know what bin Laden made of that.
Nothing. This is just a Goron having a wet dream
When I read the first paragraph I thought this was Jay Leno's first joke for tonights show.
What a load of CRAP!
Cashill is a regularly appearing kook spouting nonsense about TWA 800 at Wing Nut Daily.
First, the 9/11 attack was the fault of Clinton and Gore. It was planned and set up while they were in office, and they didn’t stop it. There is no reason to believe Gore would have stopped the 9/11 attack, just as Clinton and Gore did not stop the 1993 attack, that occurred on their watch and was their responsibility.
Why did the 9/11 attack take place? Because after the attack in 1993 Clinton and Gore did Not Take the Fight to the Enemy by invading Muslim countries as President Bush has. In the 7 1/2 years since 9/11/2001, there have been no successful attacks on the US Homeland. That is because our President is taking the battle to the enemy in Iraq and Afghanistan.
If Gore was President, we would have suffered innumerablde attacks in the years since 9/11 because Dims are cowards and would not have the courage of President Bush to send our fighting men and women into Iraq and Afghanistan.
Read the entire article. Cashill nails it.
