Bill Clinton Tells Sky News on 9/10/01: “I Could Have Killed Osama bin Laden but Didn’t” … Guess What Took Place the Very Next Day?



The day before the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, former President Bill Clinton spoke in Australia to about 30 business leaders during a lunch and stated on having passed on a chance to kill Osama bin Laden. A tape of Clinton’s comments were presented to Australia’s “Sky News” channel.

“And I’m just saying, you know, if I were Osama bin Laden — he’s very smart guy, I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about him — and I nearly got him once,” the former president reportedly says on the tape, to laughs. “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.”

Just a reminder to Bill Clinton, you were the President of the United States and supposed to protect the lives of Americans, not worry about how the world would feel about you had you taken out Bin Laden with possible collateral damage.

Hmm, He would have had to destroy a little town called Kandahar in Afghanistan? You mean the one with a population of  1,151,100? So what would you have had to do again Mr. President? BTW, Clinton did not just have one chance to kill Osama Bin Laden, he had many.

NBC News has obtained, exclusively, extraordinary secret video, shot by the U.S. government.  It illustrates an enormous opportunity the Clinton administration had to kill or capture bin Laden. Critics call it a missed opportunity.

In the fall of 2000, in Afghanistan, unmanned, unarmed spy planes called Predators flew over known al-Qaida training camps.  The pictures that were transmitted live to CIA headquarters show al-Qaida terrorists firing at targets, conducting military drills and then scattering on cue through the desert.

Also, that fall, the Predator captured even more extraordinary pictures — a tall figure in flowing white robes. Many intelligence analysts believed then and now it is bin Laden.

      Typical lies of Bill Clinton. His whole life is built on lies. Does that remind us of the present occupier of the WH?

      The outcome of not taking out Bin Laden along with 300 innocent Afghans culminated in a reign of terror on America with a loss of over 2000 innocent lives. Elected leaders have to make strategic decisions when the alternative is considered.

      U.S. Pilots Faced Ultimate Sacrifice on 9/11
      Aug. 30, 2012

      The Bush administration said shortly after Sept. 11 that the president had approved orders to shoot down United Airlines Flight 93, but ABCNEWS has learned that even more drastic measures would had to have been taken to intercept the flight, possibly including a suicide mission.

      ABCNEWS obtained the information for its special report, “9/11: Moments of Crisis.”

      With the World Trade Center twin towers and the Pentagon ablaze, the military zeroed in on Flight 93 — realizing the plane was still in the air and heading straight for Washington DC.

      The closest fighter jets were two F-16′s that happened to be on a training mission near Detroit. They were sent to intercept the United flight.
