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?
WHAT DID BILL CLINTON SAY JUST ONE DAY BEFORE SEPTEMBER 11, 2001 …
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.
Hillary Clinton’s Top Selling Point for 2016 Presidential Election is not Any Accomplishments, Its Being First Female President
What a resounding reason to qualify or vote for Hillary Clinton to be president in 2016 … Hmm, How did that same “being first” work out with Obama?
According to a recent Gallup poll, the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton is that she would be the first female president. Huh? So after all the years of politics behind her, 18% said the best reason to vote for her is just because she would be the first woman president. Just curious America, how did that little social experiment work electing Barack Obama the first black president? Hmm? Just 9% said it would be because of Hillary’s experience and foreign policy experience [can you say Benghazi, Iran, Russia reset and Middle East burning], while just 3% said she was the most qualified and capable, and 3% said healthcare reform [how did Hillary Healthcare work out?] and 2% said because of the economy.
So all America has to look forward to is a Democrat 2016 campaign of “War on Women” as we have been through six years of anyone who dares say anything negative about Obama’s policies is a racist. Isn’t enough, enough?
However, “nothing” scored 27% as the “best or most positive” reason to vote for Hillary Clinton and another 22% had no opinion or no clue. I guess this can explain why so many DNC individuals can’t name one thing that she has done. How can some one who was first lady of Arkansas from 1983 – 1992, was the first day of the United States from 1993 – 2001 [remember a Hillary said in 1992, "I'm not sitting here, some little woman standing by my man, like Tammy Wynette." ... "Baking cookies and making tea (VIDEO)".], US Senator fro New York from 2001 – 2009, and Secretary of State from 2009 – 2013 and the greatest reason why she should be elected president is because she would be the first woman. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
Seriously America, one of the main reasons why Barack Obama was elected president, other than GWB fatigue, a poor RINO Republican candidate and a poor economy was that he would be the first black president. That is of course if you discount Bill ‘Bubba’ Clinton. Wake the hell up!!! I do not care what party some one is from, your reason for voting for them can’t be because they are the first of anything. No one we can’t get qualified people in the White House.
Bill Clinton Back in His Element at Charity Gala … Poses for Picture with Two Hookers, Ava Adora and Barbie Girl, From the Famed Nevada Bunny Ranch Brothel
Hillary Clinton must be so proud of what she hopes is her future “First Man” … Tabloids and Late Night Comedy Shows are begging, even praying that Hillary wins in 2016 for the endless Bubba material!
You just can’t make this stuff up. Former President Bill Clinton is back in the tabloids after TMZ gets a hold of a picture of the former prez and two women at a gala charity event for Unite4Humanity. Seems innocent enough, right? Well, not when Slick Willie is involved. It turns out that the two women were prostitutes at the famed Nevada Bunny Ranch brothel, Ava Adora and Barbie Girl. I guess it all depends on how you define selfie.
I did not take a picture with those two women, Ava Adora and Barbie Girl, I never told anyone to take a picture, not a single time
Slick Willie probably had no clue … but the women Bill posed with at an L.A. charity event Thursday night are two star hookers at the famed Nevada Bunny Ranch brothel.
The brunette goes by Ava Adora and the blonde goes by Barbie Girl. According to her bio on the BR website, the blonde is very flexible and specializes in de-virginizing. The brunette “knows how to please a variety of both men and women.”
We have no idea how they got in to the star-studded Unite4Humanity charity gala — which honored Clinton along with several other philanthropic celebs like Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese — but we can take a wild guess why they showed.
Hillary Clinton was asked for her opinion of Bill’s latest pic, at least it wasn’t with porn stars this time.
Hillary Clinton’s Hit List: She Kept a File of Sinners and Saints … A Special Circle of Clinton Hell Reserved for People Who Endorsed Obama over Hillary
So Democrats, are you on Hillary’s Hit List?
This morning The Politico writes about Hillary Clinton’s hit list. Who would possibly believe that some one so warm, kind and compassionate like Hillary Clinton could have a “hit list” for paybacks against individuals who abandoned her in favor of Barack Obama for the Democrat nomination in the run up to the 2008 presidential election and thus devastating her life-long political aspirations of becoming president? Hell hath no fury like a Hillary scorned. According to the Politico, those that stabbed the Clinton’s in the back after all the fundraising and political favors. Individuals were rated on a scale of 1 to 7, where 7 was considered Hilary’s “SH*T” list. Interestingly enough, then, Sen. John Kerry (D-MA), who would succeed Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State in the Obama administration, was among those who received a “7″. The list also contained, the late and former Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy.
For Hillary it is all about 2016 and her ambition to be president at all cost.
As one of the last orders of business for a losing campaign, they recorded in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet the names and deeds of members of Congress. They carefully noted who had endorsed Hillary, who had backed Obama, and who had stayed on the sidelines—standard operating procedure for any high-end political organization. But the data went into much more nuanced detail. “We wanted to have a record of who endorsed us and who didn’t,” a member of Hillary’s campaign team said, “and of those who endorsed us, who went the extra mile and who was just kind of there. And of those who didn’t endorse us, those who understandably didn’t endorse us because they are [Congressional Black Caucus] members or Illinois members. And then, of course, those who endorsed him but really should have been with her … that burned her.”
For Hillary, whose loss was of course not the end of her political career, the spreadsheet was a necessity of modern political warfare, an improvement on what old-school politicians called a “favor file.” It meant that when asks rolled in, she and Bill would have at their fingertips all the information needed to make a quick decision—including extenuating, mitigating and amplifying factors—so that friends could be rewarded and enemies punished.
Their spreadsheet formalized the deep knowledge of those involved in building it. Like so many of the Clinton help, Balderston and Elrod were walking favor files. They remembered nearly every bit of assistance the Clintons had given and every slight made against them. Almost six years later, most Clinton aides can still rattle off the names of traitors and the favors that had been done for them, then provide details of just how each of the guilty had gone on to betray the Clintons—as if it all had happened just a few hours before. The data project ensured that the acts of the sinners and saints would never be forgotten.
There was a special circle of Clinton hell reserved for people who had endorsed Obama or stayed on the fence after Bill and Hillary had raised money for them, appointed them to a political post or written a recommendation to ice their kid’s application to an elite school. On one early draft of the hit list, each Democratic member of Congress was assigned a numerical grade from 1 to 7, with the most helpful to Hillary earning 1s and the most treacherous drawing 7s. The set of 7s included Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Baron Hill (D-Ind.) and Rob Andrews (D-N.J.).
Yet even a 7 didn’t seem strong enough to quantify the betrayal of some onetime allies.
When the Clintons sat in judgment, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) got the seat closest to the fire. Bill and Hillary had gone all out for her when she ran for Senate in 2006, as had Obama. But McCaskill seemed to forget that favor when NBC’s Tim Russert asked her whether Bill had been a great president, during a Meet the Press debate against then-Sen. Jim Talent (R-Mo.) in October 2006. “He’s been a great leader,” McCaskill said of Bill, “but I don’t want my daughter near him. VIDEO”
The book by Amie Parnes and Jonathan Allen is called “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.”
UPDATE I: I could not agree more than with Jammie Wearing Fool who says that this jit list most likely goes back decades. Amen brother. An excel spreadsheet? More likely a Tera-byte hard drive of enemies.
Charles Krauthammer Says Hillary Clinton Will Be “Relatively Weak” Presidential Candidate & Republicans Going to Have “a Really Good Shot at the White House”
Krauthammer Says Hillary Clinton Will Be “Relatively Weak” Presidential Candidate …
Yesterday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer has some interesting things to say regarding Hillary Clinton as a Democrat nominee for 2016 and how she would fare in the general election. Much like a recent CNN poll and many others, Krauthammer believes that, should she ran and he believes she will, Hillary Clinton will have a cake walk thru the Democrat primaries. Krauthammer stated that the status that Hillary has with Democrats is semi-devine, the primaries are “not going to be a coronation, it is going to be a worship service.” And we all know how that worked out with the Obamamessiah. There will be no serious challenger against her in the Democrat primaries. But where Charles differs from many is that he believes that that in the general election … Hillary will be “a relatively weak opponent. And, Republicans are going to have a really good shot at the White House.”
“I think she’s going to be a rather weak, if she decides to run which she likely is, a relatively weak opponent. And, Republicans are going to have a really good shot at the White House.”
As it is, in a hypothetical match-up between NJ Gov. Chris Christie and Hillary Clinton, Hillary trails. It is not a draw as the Politico headline says, Christie leads 48-46. So even with all the popularity and exposure of a Hillary Clinton without even delving into the real Hillary, she is behind.
Hmm, I am not sure if I would call her a weak candidate; however, I will say that she will be weakened by many factors that did not even exist when she was stunned by Barack Obama in the 2008 Democrat primaries.
- Hillary Clinton is going to have to defend Benghazi and why she did nothing to protect Americans where individuals begged for extra security in the run up to the anniversary of 9-11.
- How is the black vote going to rally when Clinton most likely is going to have to distance herself from a toxic Obama?
- What accomplishments did she ever do as a US Senator or Secretary of State … Hillary is not Bill Clinton.
- How is she a change from the policies of Barack Obama?
- Obamacare! … Can you say Hillary Healthcare?
- Her husband campaigned and said that no one could have fixed the economy, so why should anyone think Hillary could?
- A shift in the electorate against Democrats due to Obama fatigue.
- Trying to defend the comments, “What Difference Does it Make!”
- Duck Dynasty voters
- Did we say Obama and Obama scandal fatigue?

Barack Obama Can Once Again Play Golf Now that the Election is Over, the Hell with Fiscal Cliff, Unemployment, Govt Spending and Food Stamp Nation
Now that the 2012 election is over, Barack Obama is back golfing. This time with former president Bill Clinton. What a joke, the Middle East on fire, acts of terrorism, chronic high unemployment, out of control spending, record debt, record number of Americans on food stamps and the fiscal cliff could not stop Obama from golfing. What did, reelection of course. What a serious President we have.
President Obama and former President Bill Clinton hit the golf course on Sunday.
Obama is playing his round at Maryland’s Joint Base Andrews and it is the third presidential golf outing here since the Nov. 6 elections, under sunny skies with temperatures around 55 degrees.
Clinton went to bat for the president in the just-ended campaign, delivering an well-received endorsement at the Democratic National Convention in September. Their partnership, which was initially rocky in the early days of the Obama presidency, grew stronger after a September 2011 golf game.
Bill “the Truth” Clinton’s Obama Freudian Slip … “who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?”
Who is the president who has been lying? Obama is The Lying King.
Did former president Bill Clinton just get a final dig into Barack Obama just before the election? Oh those Freudian slips as comments that can be taken in so many ways. Clinton asked Obama supporters in Philadelphia … “but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Hmm, you mean like all the 2008 Obama campaign lies? You mean like Obamacare will lower premium costs. Like Obama was going to cut the federal deficit in half? Like he was going to lower unemployment to 5%? Heck, America would just like an answer about Benghazi and Obama does not see fit to tell the truth.
Campaigning for President Barack Obama in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon, former President Bill Clinton struck a note of irony while attempting to criticize Mitt Romney’s campaign.
“You’re laughing, but who wants a president who will knowingly, repeatedly tell you something he knows is not true?” Clinton asked, after discounting a claim in a recent Romney ad that the Obama administration’s auto bailout hurt American workers.
“When I was a kid, if I got my hand caught in the cookie jar, where it wasn’t supposed to be, I turned red in my face, and I took my hand out of the cookie jar,” Clinton added.
Even more comical … Clinton calling anyone a liar who was nailed for perjury. Only Democrats have the cojones to make such comments.
Obama Adviser Axelerod Says, Romney’s Effort in Pennsylvania a Sign Mitt is in ‘deep trouble’ … Hmm, Then Why Dispatch Bill Clinton to PA?
This morning on FOX News Sunday, Obama senior political adviser David Axelrod told Chris Wallace that the Romney campaigns move to Pennsylvania was a sign of desperation and that they were in “deep trouble”.
Senior Obama campaign strategist David Axelrod said Mitt Romney’s visit to Pennsylvania shows the GOP nominee’s campaign is in “deep trouble” and losing in the traditional battlegrounds.
Axelrod told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday” that the Romney campaign’s move into Pennsylvania is a sign of desperation because they are trailing in polls in Ohio, a state no Republican has won the election without.
“The battleground states on which we have been focusing on are not working out for them,” Axelrod said. “We’re ahead in all of them and now are looking for somewhere, desperately looking for somewhere to try and dislodge some electoral votes to win this election. And I can tell you that’s not going to happen.”
Ok, if it is such a sign of desperation on the part of Romney campaigning in Pennsylvania, what does one call it when Obama dispatches Bill Clinton to the Key Stone state? That is correct, Team Obama feels the need to send former President Clinton to PA to stem the “mittemtum”. If its such a waste of time and a sign that Romney is in “deep trouble”, how does Axelrod justify sending Obama’s greatest asset, Bill Clinton to Pennsylvania. In fact, as reported at the Gateway Pundit, Clinton is scheduled to do four rallies in PA.
I would dare say that it just might be Obama who is in trouble in Pennsylvania. Isn’t it interesting that Obama cannot go himself to Pennsylvania to stump in front of those folks who cling to their Bibles and guns. When will blue collar Democrats understand that Obama is 180 degrees different from Obama. A vote for Obama will end coal and any energy jobs in PA.
However, in the end when
talking spinning the battleground states and what party is ahead, I think it comes back to who you think is telling the truth. To hear the GOP and Democrats discuss who is ahead is like listening to a divorce case. One of the two has to be lying as the laws of physics prove that both Obama and Romney can’t win convincingly.
If that is the litmus test, who is telling the truth, sorry but Team Obama has no credibility. For folks who can’t tell us the truth about Benghazi prior to an election as have not wanted to answer difficult questions about FEMA screw ups like running out of water following Hurricane Sandy … who is really going to believe you now?
Bill Clinton Disagrees With Obama Again … US Economy Already is in a Recession, Urges Congress to Extend All Bush Tax Cuts
Don’t look now Barack Obama, but Bill Clinton is acting as President in the wake of your lack of leader ship and fiscal responsibility.
It is obvious that President Barack Obama needs Bill Clinton to campaign for him in 2012; however, the former President Clinton is subject to go off the reservation in a more biting way than VP Biden ever could. After Obama and his reelection peeps have stressed class warfare and the evil rich, Clinton went against Obama and urged the Congress to pass all of the Bush tax cuts before they expire at years end.
Clinton to Obama: How many times must I tell you, extend the Bush tax cuts
Former President Bill Clinton told CNBC Tuesday that the US economy already is in a recession and urged Congress to extend all the tax cuts due to expire at the end of the year.
In a taped interview aired on “Closing Bell,” the still-popular 42nd president called the current economic conditions a “recession” and said overzealous Republican plans to cut the deficit threaten to plunge the country further into the debt abyss. Clinton’s office released a statement after the interview.
“What I think we need to do is find some way to avoid the fiscal cliff, to avoid doing anything that would contract the economy now, and then deal with what’s necessary in the long term debt-reduction plans as soon as they can, which presumably would be after the election,” Clinton said.
Don’t look now but Clinton is saying what is good for America, Obama is just playing election politics and doing what is best for Obama. Don’t think for one second that Bill Clinton is not doing this purposely. Obama needs Clinton because he cannot run on his record, and Bill Clinton knows it.
Presidents George W. Bush & Clinton Honor the Heroes of Flight 93 in Shanksville, PA … September 11, 2001 … 10 Years Later
To the heroes of Flight 93, we remember you and we shall never forget … LET”S ROLL!!!
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”
Former Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton spoke today in an emotional event in Shanksville, PA at the unveiling of the memorial for victims of United Airlines Flight 93. The heroes of Flighty 93 were remembered today by GWB as he said, ” … they left something else, a legacy of bravery and selflessness that will always inspire America. For generations people will study the story of Fight 93. They will learn that individual choices make a difference. That love and sacrifice can triumph over evil and hate. And that what happened above this Pennsylvania field ranks among the most courageous acts in American history.“
Today was a day of honoring the 40 heroes of Flight 93 and remembering that your actions and what you do in life can echo an eternity. The heroes of Flight 93′s names are known to as all as a who’s who of what is great about America and her citizens. The heroes of Flight 93 were “We the People” who on the morning of September 1, 2001 became the first counteroffensive against the Muslim extremist terrorist. The heroes of Flight 93 embodied what is great in all of US. Against all odds, they said NO! They refused to be victims, they prevented what all know would have been a plane attack on the White House or the US Capitol. The heroes of Flight 93 gave their lives as they battled to take over the cockpit (VIDEO).
“The most likely target of the plane was the United States Capitol,” Bush said. “We’ll never know how many innocent people might have been lost, but we do know this: Americans are alive today because the passengers and crew of Flight 93 chose to act, and our nation will be forever grateful.”
Each of the 40 heroes names were read, followed by two bell rings. Sadly, even the mention of an unborn child was referenced reminding us of just how many truly innocent lives were lost. That was followed by a bagpipe performance of Amazing Grace and then Grammy-award winning singer Sarah McLachlan sang “I Will Remember You.”
Their names are permanently inscribed in our minds forever. Those who fought back against terrorism and foiled their plot of destruction. The gave the ultimate sacrifice and for that we shall always rememner you … GOD BLESS YOU ALL. We remember Todd Beamer, Mark Bingham (VIDEO), Jeremy Glick, Sandra Bradshaw, Tom Burnett and all.

KUDOS to former President Bill Clinton and VP Joe Biden for attending and speaking at the event. Clinton praised the passengers of Flight 93. What was most impressive of Clinton and Biden was their honest assessment of former President Bush and his handling of the horrendous events of 9-11 and the days that followed. Biden praised GWB for his bringing of America together on a day that could have divided us.
VP Joe Biden thanks President GWB for Uniting America following 9/11
“There has always been a special place in the common memory for people who deliberately, knowingly, certainly laid down their lives for other people to live,” said Former President Bill Clinton. “Ordinary people, given no time to decide, did the right thing…I hope and pray to God that people will remember this.”
