Osama In The Crosshairs

By 2 Comments 635 views

Allah at Hot Air found a great video made in 2000 that shows the Clinton Administration had Osama in their crosshairs but failed to pull the trigger:


The video makes mention that the drone was not armed at the time but within hours it could have been. Or some missiles could have been fired from off-shore, but alas nothing was done.

The libs can scream and stomp their feet as much as they like about the ABC mini-series, but they cannot rewrite history. I mean come on, these are the same people that embraced Fahrenheit 9/11 as fact….

This fact should tell us everything we need to know when they open their mouths.

Junkyard Blog found this article from 2004 that lets Berger slightly off the hook, but not others:

Clinton also authorized the CIA to carry out operations that legally required the agency’s officers to plan in almost every instance to capture bin Laden alive and bring him to the United States to face trial.

This meant the CIA officers had to arrange in advance for detention facilities, extraction flights and other contingencies — even if they expected that bin Laden would probably die in the arrest attempt. These requirements made operational planning much more cumbersome, the CIA officers contended.

In fashioning this sensitive policy in the midst of an impeachment crisis that lasted into early 1999, Clinton’s national security adviser, Samuel R. “Sandy” Berger, struggled to forge a consensus within the White House national security team. Among other things, he had to keep on board a skeptical Attorney General Janet Reno and her Justice Department colleagues, who were deeply invested in law enforcement approaches to terrorism, according to senior officials involved.

There it is again, something the libs cannot refute as much as they would like to, the fact that the Clinton Administration treated Osama and the war on terror as if it was a police operation. There was no war to them, it was all a law enforcement matter and that simple fact could be the single biggest reason why Osama, Al-Qaeda, and the terrorist who attacked us were not found and killed before they could set their plan in motion in 2001.

Curt served in the Marine Corps for four years and has been a law enforcement officer in Los Angeles for the last 24 years.

    As a conservative I STRONLY urge ABC to correct the falsehoods and misrepresentations in the upcoming “Path to 9/11” before it is shown. And I am not the only conservative say this.

    John Podhoretz, conservative columnist and Fox News contributor says: The portrait of Albright is an unacceptable revision of recent history and an unfair mark on a public servant who, no matter her shortcomings, doesn’t deserve to be remembered by millions of Americans as the inadvertent (and truculent) savior of Osama bin Laden. Samuel Berger, Clinton’s national security adviser, also seems to have just cause for complaint.

    James Taranto, OpinionJournal.com editor says: The Clintonites may have a point here. A few years ago, when the shoe was on the other foot, we were happy to see CBS scotch “The Reagans.”

    Dean Barnett, conservative commentator posting on Hugh Hewitt’s blog says: One can (if one so chooses) give the filmmakers artistic license to [fabricate a scene]. But if that is what they have done, conservative analysts who back this movie as a historical document will mortgage their credibility doing so.

    Chris Wallace, Fox News Sunday anchor says: When you put somebody on the screen and say that’s Madeleine Albright and she said this in a specific conversation and she never did say it, I think it’s slanderous, I think it’s defamatory and I think that ABC and Disney should be held to account.

    Captain’s Quarters blog says:If the Democrats do not like what ABC wants to broadcast, they have every right to protest it — and in this case, they had a point.

    Bill Bennett, conservative author, radio host, and TV commentator says: Look, “The Path to 9/11” is strewn with a lot of problems and I think there were problems in the Clinton administration. But that’s no reason to falsify the record, falsify conversations by either the president or his leading people and you know it just shouldn’t happen.

    I seem to remember another POTUS that wouldn’t ‘pull the trigger’ too…

    1991, Iraq, Saddam, an “A” Team, Saddam in the ‘cross hairs’ and Bush 41 said NO…

    Imagine that…
