Think Progress Loads on the BS

Sphere: Related Content

This my friends is world class bullshit:

The USS Cole was bombed on October 12, 2000. As Clinton noted in his interview with Fox, “The CIA and the FBI refused to certify that Bin Laden was responsible” until early 2001 which foreclosed the possibility of a full response during his administration.

The Bush administration, on the other hand, had 8 months prior to 9/11/01 to respond to the USS bombing and did nothing.

Classic Clinton spin. He treated everything as a criminal case to the extreme detriment of our country.

The Khobar Towers bombing was linked to bin-Laden, the Blackhawk Down fiasco was linked to bin-Laden, The African embassy bombings and myriad other terrorist incidents were linked to bin-Laden. Everyone knew that the Cole bombing was linked to bin-Laden including Clinton. For crying out loud, he had (if it plays out that he died) roots in Yemen, the place of his father's birth. He had known operatives.

Think Progress should be embarrassed to even have such an erroneous post at their site. As soon as we had investigators there all signs pointed to al-Qaeda. Richard Miniter laid it out in excrutiating detail.

How sad that the Clinton supporters are resorting to revisionism and spin to try to rewrite Clinton's legacy of failed attempts and half-hearted efforts to stop al-Qaeda. Sad yet expected.
