My first comment is why didn't Hannity let Manssor finish??? Manssor was telling Rangle about how he had worked with the present administration as much as the previous and I 'think' he was going to say something negative about the Clinton administration, when Hannity stopped him to 'move on'. Argh!

Pre-emptive strike by Rangle. It seems they are turning the tables on Carl Rove. A few months back I believe it was Rove who said that Republicans can run their campaigns on the fact of how well the Bush Admin has ran this war.

Desperate Democrats if injured will harm anyone around them.

Rangle did look nervous. He didn't know what to do with a non-politician who is smarter than he is. Rangle is all spin.

My question too! I think he was going to say something important, and he was cut off! Hannity needs to develop his listening skills, IMO.

Yes, Rangle was nervous. He kept interupting Mansoor, it didn't seem to matter with what question, just keep Manssor from talking!

This whole thing is going to blow up in the Democrats faces. They tried to get to Bush with the Enron mess and then realized that they may have opened up a can of worms. Then when Global Crossing went down the tubes, and several Democrats, including Terry McAuliffe could be linked to the Company, they dropped it like a hot potato. The new memos that came out today from '99 & '95 on prior terror notices, will force them to shut the hell up.

These Democrats are so dumb. If they're going to accuse Bush of doing something wrong, they'd better do their homework and make sure they've got their facts straight. The fact that these people never even made sure that there weren't any skeletons in their own closets before pointing the finger at Bush shows them to be the shallow and ignorant liars that they are.

Likely it was what he said on Hannity's radio show. He said that he has worked with the Bush administration and that unlike the Clinton admin, Bush has swiftly looked into all the information he has provided.

I thought Rangel acted very strange tonight (stranger than usual). He jabbered on and on, and kept interrupting Mansoor Ijaz. Mansoor Ijaz apparently has lots of info that is damaging to DemocRATs, and Rangel didn't want him to get it out there.

I know, I wanted to hear much more of what Mansoor Ijaz had to say. Rangel and Hannity cut him off. I didn't understand what all the laughing was about during this segment either, it was hardly a funny subject.

I thought the same thing about Rangle. He's usually on the offensive, but tonight, he seemed more like a comic relief. He had no substance at all to add to the debate, and really had no defense of Ijaz's facts about Clinton.

NEVER FORGET

...Before, during and after the 2000 Presidential Campaign, CLINTON TV Talking Heads (like Secretary ALBRIGHT) went on National TV to use the jailing of the Blind Muslim Cleric Leader in Brooklyn New York who masterminded the Bombing of the World Trade Center-1993 ..as its prime example that the CLINTON Administration was not soft on Terrorism during the 1990's.

...Only problem is ...the CLINTON Administration that was really doing NOTHING ...had NOTHING to do with this Victory over Terrorism ...as it was Morgan Stanley's Head of Security at WTC Tower 2 ...RICK RESCORLA... who called his old Army Buddy, Terrorism Expert and recent Islam Convert DAN HILL up to New Jersey to infiltrate New Jersey Mosques to find out who did what in the 1993 WTC Bombing.

...In his worshipping all DAN HILL's roads led to the Blind Brooklyn New York Mosque Leader. DAN and RICK then turn their findings over to Authorities for prosecution. This per DAN HILL himself while being interviewed in a March 2001 ..Dateline NBC.. TV Special about ..WTC/Battle of IA DRANG-1965 Hero ..RICK RESCORLA.

NOT THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION THAT -WAS- SOFT ON TERRORISM DURING THE 1990's ..while not protecting us from our Enemies Within and Without.

...For more on ...RICK RESCORLA... who was the last man out of the WTC in 1993 while giving up his own life for others in his final sweep for survivors at the WTC Airstrikes of 2001... please see my Bookmarked Freerepublic.com Thread titled:

Rangle was only interested in possible racism in a failed administrative apppointment, who might have tipped the dept. to realtime security threats. Rangle was hoping for a chance to play the race card and up the ante.

Notice Rangel mentioned that President Bush got the information about "possible Al-Qaeda terrorism/hijackings" while at his ranch in August 2001. If you remember, just before September 11, the big brouhaha with the liberal media was Bush's "month-long vacation in Crawford, TX". Watch... next the 'RATs will be accusing Bush of being complacent... that his month-long vacation was more important than the national security of our country!

Hannity had on the radio today, that great American, Laney Davis,refused to even discuss the whole ben Ladin/Sudan/Clinton issue because of the source {Ijaz}. When Hannity pushed, and asked the honorable Mr. Davis why, what did he have against Mansoor, silience, Laney just refused to talk and Hannity moved on.This has to be a first. All through the Monica ,Davis was never afraid to talk about anything. Wonder why he shut up on this?

Exactly. Rangel's voice was getting more and more high-pitched as the segment wore on. And all that giggling he was doing... Very uncharacteristic of Charlie Rangel. Hmmm...

...MONSOOR IJAZ saw the Truth about the Enemy Within CLINTONS' purposeful refusal to fight Terrorism during the 1990's thru the eyes of a heavy DEMOCRAT Contributor that he is ..past, present, future.

...Tonight MONSOOR IJAZ said that the only way to protect ourselves against Muslim Extremists ...is to understand them and then ...ATTACK THEM FIRST before they attack US.

...But not with the CLINTON Administration.

Why? Savage spends far too much time savaging Bush and yesterday was the worst of his anti-Bush diatribes. He says some good things but irritates me with his screaming about "Bush's failures." Savage is right about illegal immigration, however, and I hope he continues his haragues against illegals.

I hope they are that dumb. Imagine Sept 11, 2002 and the speech that Bush will make. Two months to the election and he can sink the Demoncraps and solidify the House and maybe, (I hope), get 60 in the Senate so cloture is assured. Then we can send Dasshole to the basement along with Hitlery.

The Washington Times
December 10, 2001, Monday, Final Edition COMMENTARY; Pg. A17

Clinton legacy addendum
Mona Charen

His beaming smile made it to the front page for the first time in months. Alas for him it was only the front page of the Style section in The Washington Post. There he was, shovel in hand, laying the groundwork for his presidential library in Little Rock, Ark.

But the groundwork for his place in history has already been laid - and no gleaming edifice of stone and glass will obscure it. We have witnessed, in the days since September 11, new but unsurprising evidence of what a sociopath we had as our leader for eight years. And we have learned that his immaturity, shallowness and thermonuclear self-centeredness had consequences for the nation that were tragic and very nearly catastrophic.

While the sane world grieved at the savagery of the September 11 calamity, Mr. Clinton confided to a friend his regret. What? That he hadn't done more to protect the nation? That he underestimated the danger? No. He "regretted" that this tragedy hadn't happened on his watch, and that he had therefore lost an opportunity for "greatness." Even by the vanity standards applicable to movie stars and tenors, that qualifies as pathology.

But far more damning than his solipsistic response to the nation's anguish is the abundant evidence that he did almost nothing to protect us while he had the chance. In 1996, as Monsoor Ijaz relates in the Los Angeles Times, Sudan offered to extradite Osama bin Laden to the United States. The Clinton administration declined the offer.

Demonstrating the lawyerly folly of the administration's approach to international terror, former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger explained that the United States feared it did not have the evidence to convict him in our courts. Even as late as 2000 - after the two African embassy bombings and well after it was known that bin Laden was behind the Khobar Towers attack - an Arab nation approached the Clinton White House through Mr. Ijaz, offering to collar bin Laden and eventually deliver him to the United States. The Arab nation, which Mr. Ijaz declined to name, also offered to give key information to the United States about Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah - the groups that taught bin Laden the terror ropes. Again the Clinton administration failed to act.


Even after the USS Cole was struck and nearly sunk in 2000, Mr. Clinton was too busy chasing the chimera of a grand Middle East peace to deal with those he knew had attacked us. Hoping for a secure place in history for William J. Clinton, he declined to do anything that might annoy or unsettle the Islamic world.

Bin Laden-gate Witness Dares Dems: Depose Me on Clinton 9-11 Cover-Up

The man who negotiated a deal for Osama bin Laden's extradition to the United States six years ago is daring Senate Democrats to call him as a witness in the upcoming probe into the government's 9-11 intelligence failures, saying he can blow the lid off the Clinton administration's cover-up of the episode.

Mansoor Ijaz, a major Clinton financial supporter who hammered out the 1996 bin Laden agreement with the government of Sudan only to have the White House turn the offer down, issued the challenge Thursday during an interview with nationally syndicated radio host Sean Hannity.

"I'm saying this point blank," Ijaz announced in impassioned tones. "Clinton, Berger, Albright, Susan Rice - any of them that want to come and take us on. I've got the paperwork to back up what I've said and they know it. And they know they can't run and hide."

Ijaz complained that since Sept. 11, he has yet to be called by either the House or Senate intelligence committees to give sworn testimony.

"[Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman] Bob Graham is a friend of mine and he knows what I've got in my files. And they know where to find me if they really want to find out the truth about what was possible at that time."

Ijaz charged that Senate Democrats don't want to call him, in order to protect the previous administration.

"I'm absolutely convinced," he told Hannity, "that the Democrats are desperately trying to find a way to deflect the attention from the complicity of the Clinton administration in letting this terrorism problem get so far out of hand."

The former Clinton negotiator described the missed opportunity to get bin Laden and fingered former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger and former Attorney General Janet Reno as having key roles in the deadly foul-up.

"By May of 1996 the Sudanese had decided to get rid of bin Laden because he was becoming a problem there as well. They called the Clinton administration one last time and said, 'If you don't want him to go to Saudi Arabia, we're prepared to hand him over to you guys directly.'"

"And the Clinton administration's response to that was 'We don't have enough legal evidence against him,'" Ijaz explained.

Besides Berger and Reno, "Clearly the president had to have had a hand in making that decision," he added. "There's no question in my mind that he was involved in those decisions as well. There's no question about that at all."

The former Clinton negotiator suggested that Congress depose other witnesses who could corroborate and expand upon his account.

"The American people should know that I have even persuaded a senior Sudanese intelligence official, who was later the intelligence chief, that if it became necessary he would come to the United States and testify in closed hearings about precisely what they were prepared to do," he said. "And he would bring the data with him."

Another witness suggested by Ijaz: former Clinton administration ambassador to the Sudan, Tim Carney.

"Frankly, [Carney] can take the American people a couple of steps further in terms of taking them inside the deliberations that went on and telling people precisely how the politicizing of the intelligence took place at that time."

Ijaz also charged that Clinton officials deliberately went out of their way to stifle FBI anti-terrorism probes.

"The FBI, in 1996 and 1997, had their efforts to look at terrorism data and deal with the bin Laden issue overruled every single time by the State Department, by Susan Rice and her cronies, who were hell-bent on destroying the Sudan," he said.

The Bush administration takes a different approach entirely, according to Ijaz.

"I can tell you personally that I have dealt with the Bush administration's national security team." he told Hannity. "These are people who immediately react to information that is brought to their attention that is necessary and important for people to know. ... There is no comparison to the Clinton administration."

former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger explained that the United States feared it did not have the evidence to convict him in our courts.

The most corrupt administration of the Republic, which murdered Vince Foster, incinerated eighty innocents in Waco, crashed a plane to get Ron Brown, murdered Jim McDougal, sent 150 SS thugs for a six-year-old boy didn't want to imprison the most dangerous man on earth because it feared it did not have the evidence to convict him in our courts.

Per Webb Hubbell's father-in-law Seth Ward, "There's horsepower and then there's horsesh*t."

This ain't horsepower.

...as I have so often stated here since 1999 and throughout my adult life since returning from the 1st Major Battles of the Vietnam War...

...HILLARY RODHAM -&- BILL CLINTON behaved here at home just like the Communist North Vietnamese Enemy we were still fighting in a then Free South Vietnam.

...Watching OxFord "Student" BILL CLINTON's Anti-America misbehaviors in England and the Communist Soviet Union during the late 1960's, early 1970's ...I said to myself and others...

.."This man is a VIPER. If he ever gets into a position of Real Political Power here ...WE ARE IN ..T-R-O-U-B-L-E..!!!

...The Enemy is now within and always has been as one with our Terrorist and Communist Terrorist Enemies everywhere.
