Whenever I seriously start thinking/planning on moving back to LA, the great folks of New York remind me of how much there is to love about this great city of ours. "It's War" blares the headline in the post. Huh? Hillary Clinton responds in defense of her husband and all of a sudden it is "War"?
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday fired a direct shot at Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice for not taking Osama bin Laden seriously enough before 9/11.
Clinton jumped into the escalating and bitter blame game after Rice charged in yesterday's Post that Bill Clinton was making "flatly false" claims that the Bush administration didn't do enough to stop the terror attacks.
"I'm certain that if my husband and his national security team had been shown a classified report entitled 'Bin Laden Determined to Attack Inside the U.S.,' he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team," Hillary Clinton charged.
Her carefully worded but searing comments were aimed directly at Rice, who served as Bush's national security adviser before the attacks. Clinton was referring to a classified Aug. 6, 2001, briefing Bush received, attended by Rice and other top advisers, that dealt with bin Laden's interest in attacking the United States.
"All you have to do is read the 9/11 commission [report] to know what [Bill Clinton] and his administration did to protect Americans," Hillary Clinton said.
"I think my husband did a great job in demonstrating Democrats are not going to take these attacks," she added.
That is what war looks like? To me that is mere telling of the facts. It is, indeed, a fact that President Bush, not President Clinton, was at the helm on 9/11. Why everyone is so loathe to accept that reality is beyond me. When someone dares defend themselves and attacks this administration it is "war"? Give me a break folks. The Clintons are just the only Democrats on the planet, it seems, who aren't afraid to fight back. If that feels like war to you, then that is personal problem. I suggest you grow some tougher skin and get used to it. Frankly, Hill didn't really say all that much. If she really wanted to take direct aim and Condi there are so many more bullets in the arsenal. From the laid back response to the OBL memo to all the lies in the run up to the war and all the bullshit they spew every single day. So, in the words of our dear, fearless leader I say, "Bring it on!"
