A CIA-commissioned report warned the Clinton administration in 1999 that terrorists aligned with Osama bin Laden might hijack commercial jetliners to crash into the Pentagon and government buildings in the nation's capital.

The warning, given to high-ranking administration officials in September 1999, is the first known report to suggest that government sites in Washington were terrorist targets.

Oh gee... Clintong knew and did NOTHING... but call in a fresh "thong snapping" humidor... aka, an intern, of course. Oh... and yes, bury the reports to avoid culpability should an event occur on or near his "watch." Too bad now, we know, HE KNEW and did NOTHING. The arabs offered us pukeface ladin... on a platter, but Clintong said "no thanks."

What a foreign policy failure the Clinton administration was.

Dems of course, will say, "He was distracted by the republicans... how could he even function... it is a wonder he did so good..." The nation KNOWS what clinton did with his time, cigars, female humidors, anal/oral activities and midnight trysts with whoever wanted a job in government. He followed his pelvis to infamy... "not so!" cry the dems!

...but the polls I see tonight indicate that about 90 + percent of the nation SEES this exactly for what it is... political desperation at it's most extreme. These are the type of sounds, a dying political party makes as it cannibalizes its own existance for the sake of TRYING to survive the next election cycle... I can hardly wait.

November cometh.

Clinton's role surely should be investiaged. Amazing how much harm this one person has done for this country and contnues to do even if it is just to deliberately waste taxpayer money.

The "he was distracted" argument just doesn't seem to fit well with the "brilliant strategist and extremely intelligent" argument they made about Bill. They can't have it both ways.

I think the dirty little secret is that BILL CLINTON WAS ACTUALLY THE INCOMPETENT, STUPID, DRUGGIE FRAT BOY IN THE WHITEHOUSE. He was easily distracted alright, but not by the R's......

Thanks for your two cents on the "Cynthia McKinney Effect"! Is there a picture of Hillary on the senate floor holding the "Bush Knew" headline ? Wouldn't this finally get through to the masses ? Couldn't this be a huge political miscalculation for her ?

According to the report, intelligence experts believed that suicide bombers belonging to a "martyrdom battalion" of bin Laden's al Qaeda network might crash aircraft into various government buildings. The analysts suggested that the attacks could come as possible retribution for air strikes ordered by President Clinton in 1998 against bin Laden's terrorist camps in Afghanistan.

Clinton didn't do anything then, and he didn't do anything after Bin Laden's involvement in the first WTC bombing, the bombing of the USS Cole and our embassies in Africa. He had the opportunity to get him but he refused to do so.

Thanks as usual for your great researching and indexing for us.

The Hilldebea$t will not be happy when this stuff gets trotted out again. She depends on her mediot buddies in terminal lust for her not bring up these old stories about her and terrori$m $'s from the Islamic Terrorist groups.

>>>>Mr. Grassley asked in a letter yesterday to the CIA's Office of Inspector General to investigate how the agency handled the information<<<

I have come to believe that a Republican leaked the memo implicating W in order to mount a counter attack. The counter attack exposing Clinton will be much more effective and less partisan than an open attack against an expresident and sitting Senator. That is...a counter attack is permisable after the press has rabidly become involved whereas an unprovoked attack would not.

Hi, Dave- I guess you have figured out from some of my comments that I think the "media"- both press and entertainment- are two of the worst things that ever happened to America.

I have no doubt that without the constant promoting, and spinning, and lying, and "just not talking about certain stories," the clintons would have been footnotes in History.
Just another failed, corrupt Southern Governor and his shrewish wife.

I do think we are gaining on the media, though... I noted this a few days ago:

-Talk radio & the Web...coming up to speed--

I think, that thanks to Free Republic, conservative talk radio and other conservative web sites, we started to gather wins against the media following the election of November 2000.

Thanks to the economy and more conservatives just saying NO to the left wing forms of the media. The mediots are in a double bind. They are losing ad $'s and audiences as more conservatives stop buying or viewing.

A personal goal of each conservative should be to try and get one person/family to stop viewing left wing tv and buying their fishwraps each month. Then, each new freed conservative should have the same goal.

If those newly Freed Conservatives are using Free Republic, cancel a fishwrap subscription, and send half of their monthly savings to Free Republic. There would be a double win for conservatives and a double loss for the lefties.

Agreed. We canceled all subscriptions about 3 years ago- concurrent with getting on the web. One of my personal goals is to get everyone I know to get on the 'net and to listen to talk radio.

If every conservative Freeper had that goal and worked each day on that goal, we would strike a fatal blow against the mediot buddies of the demonicRats!
