During his interview with former President Bill Clinton on Fox News Sunday, Chris Wallace asked Clinton why he failed to "do more" during his presidency to put Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden "out of business," a question, Clinton said, Fox News "do[esn't] ask the other side." Wallace denied the charge, responding, "That is not true."

Also, FOX invited him on to talk about his fundraising for charity and then threw this question in the middle of it. I think Bill handled it rather well ;)

Do I need to dig up the facts that Bin Laden was offered to Clinton on a silver platter by Syria. (pretty sure it was Syria) And he turned them down.
Every goddamn word out of his mouth is a lie.

Nice spin on words you fucking retard.


" I was delighted to get the chance to interview former President Clinton. This was the first one-on-one sitdown he's ever given "Fox News Sunday" during our 10 years on the air.

The groundrules were simple--15 minutes--to be divided evenly between questions about the Clinton Global Initiative and anything else I wanted to ask.
"


You make it sound like it was a big surprise that a question didn't deal with his charity.

Honestly, he looked like a man that was cornered! He was very defensive and unprofessional in my opinion!

He freaked out when they called him out. And good for them on finally directly holding the sonovabitch accountable. And notice, he never answered the question! He continued to dance around the fact that he was offered Bin Laden. Then he started calling the interviewer names. Saying that he was a conservative hit man etc. Very pathetic.

mikesova apparently didn't watch the interview in its entirety.

I do like how Clinton used the word kill when referring to Osama. While Billy came off very defensive, at least it was nice to hear a politician, or former politician, say kill instead of bring him to justice or some such statement when referring to Bin Laden.

Handled it rather well ? He lost his temper. I dont remember him getting nearly so testy about perjury ! Well invite me on a show under the guise that your gonna stroke my ego, and even thogh the agreement was not to talk 100% about the charity, HOW DARE wallace ask him a relevant question like that, which much of the country and world would appreciate a frank answer to!

If you mean "handle well" as in his usual political side steping, non answers and embaressing himself by loosing his temper .... then yes he handled it well. From my perspective he embaressed himself, apearing unprepared, egotisitcal, and vain.

When your the guy that wants to debate the interpretation of "sexual relations" and even the meaning of the word "is" (famoulsy said "depends on what your definition of the word "is" is!) lol jackass!! .... you have to be pretty humble with other peoples interpretation of an interviews parameters. Funny thing is he cant say no to the camera cause he is a camera whore, loves attention, and needs his chairty as a means to mack on hot rich chics. He couldnt say no if he wanted to!

I don't think I would characterize his response as “losing his temper”, it was a passionate response to an emotionally charged question, but he didn’t lose control. I also respect him for admitting that he failed, and believe him when he expresses regret for that failure.

I have no way of knowing exactly what type of “behind the scenes” attempts to kill bin Laden may have been taken during the Clinton administration but I did think that his lobbing a bunch of cruise missiles at some tents and aspirin plants was pretty half hearted. But I also don’t think there would have been much support for a ground invasion to get him at that time either. And just look at the current situation, we’ve had ground forces there looking for him for 5 years and have failed to get him, what makes you think we could have got him then?

We may have had chances to get him in the mid 1990’s, but I don’t think he was viewed as much of a threat then, and we would have had little justification to do anything to him. Go back another decade and we viewed him as being on our side because he was fighting against the Soviets in Afghanistan. Hindsight's 20/20, it’s tough to say just when we should have seen that he was the enemy.

I do think that part of the problem during the Clinton administration was that he, and the rest of the country, was to distracted by his fooling around with interns to concentrate on what was happening in the rest of the world. Many of the action he did take were viewed as “wagging the dog” rather than a serious attempt at protecting the country. That was always my big complaint about that, I didn’t care so much that he cheated on his wife or that he fooled around with an intern, what bothered me was that it distracted his and our attention away from more important issues. Everything he said and did was viewed in that light rather than what implications it had on the rest of the world. I place the blame for that fully on his shoulders and not at all on those who brought it to light. He did it, he’s to blame.

911 deaths = app 3020
U.S. deaths during current war = app 2703 and rising

Civilians killed in Iraq = app. 15,000 (someones mother , Father, Grandma, oh yeah and someones Baby.)

I know this is a little off topic. But for you Bush supporters I just figured I would point this out. It is easy to turn your head from these facts when you are sitting in your lazy boy watching survivor or whatever.

Those 2703 americans that were killed could be here defending us from another 911 protecting our borders instead of dying.

By the way, my Niece is in Iraq and I am a Veteran. I figured I would point that out before someone yhinks I am clueless and bling to the situation. Those nembers are facts.

You will find facts on Fox news. Just not all the facts. Nobody has the balls to present these numbers.

There will be terrorism on this planet as long as it exists. Lets defend ourselves instead of helping other countries first.

How many were killed by US troops, and how many by Iraqi suicide bombers?

As stated before, protecting involves preventative measures, not just reactive; sitting and waiting to be attacked.

They are protecting us from another 911 and protecting our borders, BY KILLING THEM FIRST IN THEIR COUNTRY BEFORE THEY GET TO OURS! I never thought that was real hard to understand.

Yay, biased media...
Instead of religion, what over 95 percent of all suicide terrorist attacks since 1980, all around the world have in common is a specific strategic goal, to compel modern democracies to withdraw combat forces from territory the terrorists prize greatly. From Robert Pape Terrorist expert.

Ask yourself this. How many people have died in random terrorist attacks in the united states prior to 911. Hint. Most were killed by timothy mcveigh.


http://www.americanmemorialsite.com/victims.html

Since 1968 -2000 I count less than 500 SINCE 1968 killed in america. Other than 911 at that rate it would take 84 years for 2703 americans to be killed in terrorist attacks. Our current administration managed to get this number in 6 years. I believe our President means well. He is just caught in something he cant turn back on because of his pride.

If another 911 happens I think it will be because we pissed someone off.

If you think the war on terror can be one think of it like this. You are sitting around watching TV. you love everyone in the world. All of a sudden a bomb falls on your house killing your entire family except you. You find out it was the U.S. What are you gonna do now?

So do you still think we should go overseas to fight this war.

You mean people like Osama Bin Laden? Go ahead blame Clinton. You can blame him all you want. THis argument cannot be won by either side. But Bush has the oppurtunity now and most of his efforts ar in Iraq. Why are we there by the way. Oh yeah those weapons.

You don't think killing or capturing the terrorist leaders is a good thing? Don't you think that it helps distrupt their planning and exacution of more attacks? We've killed or captured thousands of terrorists and the ones that have replaced them. I'll take that any day rather than sit here and let them plan whatever they want with no harasment making it easier to exacute the plans.
But I'm sure you would rather cut and run giving them another victory (your boy in Somalia gave them a good win) and try to reason with terrorists.

CMUjeeper, why do you respond to his posts? Can't you just whisper it into his ear as you spoon him?
