Bill Clinton On 9/10: I Could Have Killed Osama Bin Laden

From The New York Daily News:

Bill Clinton: I could have killed Osama bin Laden but didn’t

By Adam Edelman | Thursday, July 31, 2014    
Just hours before the 9/11 terror attacks, Bill Clinton told a group of Australian businessmen that he passed on a chance to kill Osama Bin Laden, according to a revelation by an Australian media outlet…

“I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama Bin Laden — he’s a very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once,” Clinton says on the recording of his speech. “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 didn’t do it,” the former commander-in-chief adds.

What this transcript misses is the weird chuckle in Mr. Clinton’s voice as he related this amusing apparently anecdote. (By the way, this is how the Politico reported this news: ‘Bill Clinton’s alleged talk of bin Laden — on 9/10/01.’)

The Sept. 10, 2001, speech was recorded with Clinton’s permission but the audio was never released until one of the men in attendance unveiled it Wednesday night on the Australian television network.

And getting permission from the Clintons is important. In fact, the Clintons are now saying that unauthorized biographies “Should neither be allowed nor enabled.”

From CBS News:

Bill, Hillary Clinton blast "despicable" anti-Clinton authors

Jake Miller | July 31, 2014

… Spokesmen for Bill and Hillary Clinton, along with their daughter Chelsea, criticized the authors of anti-Clinton books in a statement released Wednesday, and they urged the media not to give the authors a platform.

"We now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense for a quick buck, at the expense of anything even remotely resembling the truth," explained the statement, which was obtained by Politico. "It’s an insult to readers [and] authors, and should be reserved for the fiction bin, if not the trash."

"Their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled, and legitimate media outlets who know with every fiber of their being that this is complete crap should know not to get down in the gutter with them and spread their lies," the statement added. "But if anyone isn’t sure, let’s strap all three to a polygraph machine on live TV and let the needle tell the truth." …

Has any Clinton ever passed a polygraph?

Besides, don’t we have another audio tape of Hillary laughing about how unreliable polygraphs are? From back when she was yucking it up about getting the rapist of a 12 year old girl a reduced sentence.

    AUDIO: Bill Clinton Let Bin Laden Go

    At the time, 1996, he had committed no crime against America so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America.

    THAT IS THE BASIS ON WHICH TO HOLD HIM! –that he wanted to commit crimes against America, and Sudan sounded the alarm directly to you about it. The same as Russia warned America about the Boston marathon bombers, and no one did anything.

    Tell Sudan to hold him until he can be interviewed by the CIA, since Sudan was interested in diplomacy with America, they surely would have obliged. What routinely happens if an American makes threats but doesn’t actually commit a crime? That’s right, the government swoops down upon him immediately, but not for a known Muslim terrorist?

    Lawyerese on display here in order to expunge responsibility in hindsight. I am disgusted that all the slimy things that ooze out of the closet about these people are not disgusting to their voters.

    This, emanating from the minds and mouths of anyone named Clinton, is a very telling thing.

    This is exactly what the socialists do, every minute of every hour of every day. If not for a quick buck, then for political gain.

    It’s odd when the lying liars who lie actually, but inadvertently, tell the truth when they project their own personal traits onto their enemies.

    Problem is, it comes so easily to them they cannot recognize their own stink when they smell it.
