Documentary Blows Clinton's Cover, Reveals Bill's Roll In 9/11
Osama Bin Laden was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks that killed 2,977 Americans. There are still first responders to this day that are living with illnesses they contracted by breathing in the debris from those building. It was a horrendous attack on American soil and according to a recent documentary it very well could have been avoided had Slick Willy allowed the CIA to take out Osama Bin Laden
"A new documentary reveals that the U.S. had an opportunity to kill Usama bin Laden in the 1990s after tracking his location with the help of Afghan tribal informants, but were unable to do so because of an order signed by then-President Bill Clinton.
That order allowed the CIA to engage in "lethal activity" against the Al Qaeda leader, but the purpose of the strike could not be to kill him.
“We were being asked to remove this threat to the United States essentially with one hand tied behind our backs,” said now-former CIA station chief Bob Grenier in Showtime’s “The Longest War.”
"According to director Greg Barker, “It’s hard to believe now, but back in the late ‘90s, most of the Washington national security establishment—including President Clinton, the State Department, the Department of Defense—simply did not view Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda as a serious threat. The handful of U.S. officials who saw the looming threat clearly—and there were some, mostly mid-level officers at the CIA’s bin Laden unit and the counter-terrorism branch at the FBI—tried in vain to raise alarm bells at the highest levels, but were often ignored and even ridiculed.”
Clinton claimed it was because there would have been civilian casualties.
“I nearly got him. And I could have killed him, but I would have to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan and kill 300 innocent women and children, and then I would have been no better than him. And so I just didn't do it,” Clinton confessed to an Australian audience just 10 hours before two planes struck the World Trade Center."
It sounds like there were missed opportunities here. It looks like Clinton was just trying to cover his butt when he said that there would have been 300 casualties if they had gone after Bin Laden. If the CIA was following him it seems like there must have been other opportunities that would have allowed for far fewer civilian casualties or none whatsoever. If the CIA had not been restrained our country would likely never have had to face such a tragedy. If only we had had stronger leadership instead of a president infatuated with his intern.
