    I jsut heard on the news that Clinton had several opportunities to get Bin Laden, but didn't. Hindsight is 20/20, but I am not sure if I am pissed off or not. The administration said they jsut didn't have any proof, but then Cliton is reported to have said that this biggest mistake now was not to get him when they could. Personally, I hope people don't beat up Clinton on this. My fealings are I guess that if you don't have the proof then how can you justify to whole world about starting a war to get him. No one could have predicted what happened on 9-11. I am sure we could have killed Hitler too before it got to late.
    What the Bush administration is doing is unprecedented and should be commended. Unfortunetly it wsa Bush's own father when he was VP, that his admiistration helped to arm and train these guys. Funny how our politics work and come back to bite us sometimes.

    This is old news. They tried to get him after the embassy bombings, but felt that the information was too old to risk lives over. The WTC attack was inconceivable before it occured.

    Don't forget the Pentagon and Penn. crash. No offense MikeL, but I hope American doesn't forget that NY wasn't the only place hit that day. More devestating yes, but not the only place where people died.

    I'm not forgetting them. It's just easier to refer to the whole as the WTC attacks.

    We could blame Clinton for missing Bin Laden.

    We could blame George Bush Sr. for funding and training him and other terrorists in the first place.

    We could also point out that George Jr. sent the Taliban $43 million as recently as April 2001. And while he may or may not have known their affiliation with Bin Laden, it is certain that he did know what kind of an oppressive bunch of fuckwads they were. Hardly worthy of US dollars.

    But at this point, what good would it do to blame either one? The shit happenned, it's being dealt with.

    What is important is that we NEVER depend on pieces of shit like Bin Laden, Hussein, Noreiega, etc to do our dirty work again. If we have to depend on psychotic terrorists to do a job, then perhaps the "job" was not worth doing in the first place....
