Top GOP'er 'Furious' at Hillary, Calls for 9-11 Clinton Probe
NewsMax.com ^ | May 26, 2002 | Carl Limbacher

Posted on 05/26/2002 11:04:50 AM PDT by Carl/NewsMax

Oklahoma Sen. Don Nickles, the number two Republican in the Senate, said Saturday that he was "furious" at his colleague, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, over comments she made last week suggesting that President Bush could have prevented the 9-11 attacks.

Then, in a warning to Clinton and other Democrats who have focused exclusively on 9-11 intelligence failures during President Bush's first eight months in office, Nickles added, "If we're going to have an investigation, we should have an investigation of why we didn't respond strongly to previous acts of terror."

"I'm pretty critical of the previous administration," the leading Republican explained during a lengthy interview with his homestate newspaper, the Oklahoman. "They dropped the ball in the war on terrorism. They never engaged in the war on terrorism."

Nickles has already begun laying the groundwork for a Clinton-9-11 terror probe, showing the newspaper prepared charts listing five terrorist attacks on the U.S. during the Clinton administration, not counting the Oklahoma City bombing.

Juxtaposed with the charts' graphics, the Oklahoma conservative has inserted quotes from President Clinton promising a strong and forceful response. But, said Nickles, those promises were never followed by effective action.

The Republican leader complained that U.S. facilities at home and abroad were attacked repeatedly during the Clinton years but, "we didn't do anything about it."

He cited the 1998 al Qaeda bombings of U.S. embassies in Africa, the 1996 Khobar Towers military barracks bombing and the attack two years ago on the U.S.S. Cole.

In light of the Clinton administration's failed record on terrorism, Nickles said that Mrs. Clinton's attack on President Bush was "very inappropriate."

"Whatever is covered up will be uncovered and every secret will be made known." Luke 12:2

The following collection of news reports point toward the Clinton cover-up of Terrorist Acts against the US....rather than deal with the real threats that led to 9/11 the Clinton Administration and main stream media deceived the American public into thinking that the real threat in the 90's was talk radio,conservatives,militia and Christians.

The Xlinton admins's legacy has proven to more than a semen stained dress; it is also a smoking crater in Manhattan.

WHAT?? If it wasn't for them violating the Branch Dividians right to freedom of religion, the OKC bombing would have never happened!!! The Clinton Administration never investigated terrorist bombings because terrorists don't investigate their own!

The GOP is really good at getting angry about Hillary, but unfortunately, assuming angry poses is where it stops.

GWB and Ashcroft gave her a free pass and she's going to use it to thrash them thoroughly (politically speaking) while her "husband" smacks Bush about internationally.

The DemonRats say they want the facts public about who did what and when. Fine. The inaction of their boy Bubba Klinton will kill any argument they got against anybody else. VP Al Gorp had a big role to play in Klinton's schizophrenic foreign policy. Let's take a look at what he did. Let's get it on the table right now.

That's right. They are playing for the cameras and nothing more. IF they were serious, then an investigation into Filegate would already be underway.

Ditto, the above, Wheezer. Time to dust off some of those investigations into pardons, stolen WH property etc. Like our international enemies, they only view the "new tone" as weakness. What a disgusting piece of work that woman is - excuse me, that "female" is.

They'd also be investigating Chinagate, Pardongate, and a half dozen other -gates, too. But they know the media will label them scandalmongers, so the Repubs are scared to do anything. The Repubs let the media publicly flog them for 8 years while Klinton laughed and openly accepted bribes for anything and everything including nuclear technology and pardons.

If Nickles handles this right, he can not only get both Clintons, Gore, The Dem's in the Senate who refused to look at the evidence in the impeachment and kept the administration in power, and Trent Lott who cut the deal to rig the impeachment trial. I guess that would be too much to ask, but one can dream can't they?

No,they're not. This is just a dog and pony show being run by Nickles to rally political support for himself. A political move that means nothing. He's even partnered-up with Chuckie Schumer to get the same sweetheart deal for the victims of OKC that the victims of the WTC in NYC got. Wants taxpayer money to provide $1 million+ to each of the families. In short,he is scum,just like they are.

The thing that worries me the most out of all of this (and this is just good old fashioned politics, I don't know why anybody would be shocked) is that they'll try and outdo one another in tring to "prevent" future attacks, which means we'll be the ones to end up paying for this, whether it be losing a few rights or whatever.

Frankly, Carl, I found Hillary's yammerings on this subject to be further evidence of her legendary "political tin ear". She sure wanted to be known as a "co-President" during her dirtbag hubby's tenure..............yet she surely wouldn't want to be associated with his weak, limp-wristed approach to terrorism, now, would she? Yet, she is just stupid enough to swing the klieg lights 'round and invite scrutiny of her husband's miserable performance in this area.........thereby inviting the easiest of responses from the Republicans: "Oh yeah, Hill???? Well, sweet cheeks, just where the hell were you and that husband of yours from '92 through 2000??? Asleep at the switch?? Was he getting bl*w jobs from Monica during those attacks and the response planning as well??? "

"Bag it, Hillary. Just go stuff it."

For the record, I just saw Larry Klayman on MSNBC agreeing with Hillary Clinton AND Tom Daschle concerning this matter. He actually said that the Bush administration was WORSE than the Clinton administration.

Ah yes, some more coldly crafted pontifications from the traitorous "co-president," Hillary Clinton, truly "The Teflon Sociopath."

I wish my ears could never be traumatized by the monotonic, condescending voice of that tree trunk legged, encrusted black pant suited, paradigm of all that is American lawyerhood, wife of disbarred "husband" Bill, terminally narcissistic, grandiose, lying, conspiring, porcine, eternally unindicted criminal.

Thanks....for what it is worth you can boil down all Americas problems to the so called "mainstream media".....Jefferson and the other founders made one mistake when thinking that a free press would keep politicians honest and the public informed

Weeks after the OKC bombing I was interviewed by the FBI for no other reason than I was a outspoken talk show host.....Clinton made the call after Waco that to win in 96 all he had to do was cast all Conservatives as wacked out Christians/Militia/KKK members etc..going after the real terrorist would not of gotten him re-elected .as I pointed out on my web page

Relaxing on Air Force One after the election, Bill Clinton told reporters it was the Oklahoma bombing that proved the turning-point in his political fortunes. It was the moment when the militias, the Christian Right and the Gingrich onslaught against government, all melded together in the public mind as one rampant movement of extremism. "It broke a spell in the country as the people began searching for our common ground again," said Clinton.

The real sad story is most all conservatives were shamed into silence during the 90's to afraid to speak up in the event they were called politically incorrect....I witnessed this strange behavior of conservatives in Rhodesia and later in South Africa�.....lets hope America does not suffer the same outcomes.....I won't hold my breath!

Clinton's parting gift to Bush? Poking the Taliban hornet's nest...and running:
Today, the United Nations removed all its remaining relief workers from the country, fearing a backlash from the Taliban, who will be almost completely isolated diplomatically when the resolution takes effect in 30 days, a grace period during which the Taliban could avoid sanctions by meeting the Council's demands. , Dec. 20th...2000.
Why did Clinton wait until his last month in office to push the UN for tougher sanctions against the Taliban "if they didn't hand over Osama Bin Laden"? Clinton knew that this would anger not only the Taliban, but their terrorist pals across the world. The UN understood the danger...they pulled their own people out the same day, Dec. 20th, the new threat was issued.

On Dec. 18, 2000 the Florida electoral college voted for President Bush. On Dec. 19th Clinton went to the UN to push for tougher sanctions. On Dec. 20th the UN reluctantly issued the threat...to go into effect Jan. 20th, 2001, President Bush's inaugeration day.

Maybe I'm a bit naive. Why would Clinton even open herself by saying anything? Could she want a inquiry so she can embarrass Bill with the information that would come out?
