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.

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.

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......
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.
