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.
Bodies Rained Down from the Sky on Ukraine Village After Malaysia MH17 Plane Shot Down by a Ground to Air Missile … And Obama Went to Fundraisers
Reuters reports that following the ground to air missile attack that blew Malaysia flight MH17 from the sky, bodies of innocent men, women and children rained down on the Ukraine village to the horror of the villagers below. Bodies of the victims of Flight MH17 fell on to people’s yards, on their homes and broke through their roofs. The terrible reality was that the sky was raining dead bodies, body parts and pieces of the missile targeted plane. This is what Barack Obama described the situation as, ‘Looks like it may be a tragedy’ just before he went off to two fundraiser in NYC following this terror attack and act of war against a civilian airplane. How does Obama justify fundraising and jokes to the images below in the truly disturbing video?
Even yesterday, bodies and debris scattered the countryside as the smell of death and jet fuel was in the air.
Warning: Extremely graphic
First came the loud explosion that made buildings rattle: then it started raining bodies.
One of the corpses fell through the rickety roof of Irina Tipunova’s house in this sleepy village, just after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 exploded high over eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian separatists are fighting government forces.
“There was a howling noise and everything started to rattle. Then objects started falling out of the sky,” the 65-year-old pensioner said in front of her grey-brick home.
“And then I heard a roar and she landed in the kitchen, the roof was broken,” she said, showing the gaping hole made by the body when it came through the ceiling of the kitchen in an extension to the house.
The dead woman’s naked body was still lying inside the house, next to a bed.
Another local resident in her 20s who refused to give her name said she ran outside after hearing the plane explode.
“I opened the door and I saw people falling. One fell in my vegetable patch,” she said.
Sean Hannity Blasts President Barack Obama in Blistering Monologue … ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”
BARACK OBAMA, ITS TIME TO LEAD, NOT DIVIDE …
Last night Sean Hannity blasted Barack Obama in a blistering monologue begging, asking and demanding that this president ‘WAKE UP” and get engaged in the turmoil in both domestic and foreign policy. Much of which Obama has no one to blame but himself. Although he will try and pass the buck. It is becoming evident that Obama is the “Bystander” in Chief and refuses to step up to the plate and lead. But instead Obama attends fundraisers, plays golf and goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.
Hannity stated that our world is in an alarming state of emergency, between Israel’s ground war into Gaza to protect itself from Hamas, Malaysia flight ML17 blown out of the sky in an unspeakable act killing innocent men, women and children, ISIS on the rise, Al-Qaeda on the move, the Middle East on fire, Russia and Putin flexing its muscles, Obama administration scandals like IRS-gate and Benghazi-gate, and a US domestic policy of out of control national debt and a discouraged work force. Let us not forget the crisis we have on our Southern border caused by Obama’s lack of protecting or borders. Then there is that Obamacare thing.
Hannity said, “It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities. So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.” Hannity went on to say, “Mr. President for you to stand up. It is time for you to lead. It’s time to skip for once your lavish million dollar Marha’s Vineyard vacation. It’s time for you to put down those golf clubs. I thing 180 rounds of gold is quite enough. It is time for you to lead by example. [...] You need to spend more time in The Oval Office. You need to be in the Situation Room. You may be surprised to learn what has actually happened in the six years since you have become the leader of the free world.”
“It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities,” Hannity said. “So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.”
Hannity then skewered the president over his handling of domestic matters.
“Mr. President, why don’t you consider the events of these past 24 hours to be a very, very costly and deadly wake up call,” Hannity said. “And while all this was happening yesterday, you spent 40 seconds dealing with the killing of nearly 300 innocent people and for your secretary of state to tell Israel to restrain itself again and again. It’s time for a wakeup call.
12 Years Later … September 11, 2001, Have You Forgotten? We Will Always Remember Those We Lost, The Heroes and the Evil that Attacked Us
12 years later, in some ways it feels just like 12 hours ago and sometimes just 12 minutes ago. God Bless those who lost their lives that terrible day and a special prayer to the families of those who lost so very much and have overcome.
Have you forgotten that fateful September morning? In many ways it seems that many have. That is until we are attacked again, like in Benghazi, Libya last September 11, 2012. A terror attacked passed off as being blamed on a anti- Islamic video tape by our government and one year later “We the People” have no answers or individuals in custody. But today is meant to honor the memories of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and the heroes that inspired a nation. It has been 12 years to the day of that fateful September morning in 2001 where in an instant our lives and world changed forever. Nearly 3000 people lost their lives in NYC at the World Trade Center, in Washington, DC as flight 77 crashed into the Pentagon and in a field in Shanksville, PA where heroes aboard Flight 93 took matters into their hands and said “NO to terrorism”. DO YOU REMEMBER?
We saw pure evil and we saw the best of people. The heroism of those who responded to the terrible terrorist and cowardice acts will never be forgotten as well. Fireman, police, paramedics and first responders running into buildings to help their fellow man, perishing in their efforts. Folks, do not ever forget that feeling you had that day. Do not ever get complacent, do not ever let political correctness make you feel guilty for your actual feelings. For if we forget history and what took place, we are destine to repeat it.
Sorry, love him or hate him, we all owe President George W. Bush for his leadership in the aftermath of 9-11. This is what presidential leadership looks like and thank God we had him to help a nation through the pain and anguish in the days, months and years after. Below is GWB’s iconic bullhorn speech in NYC at Ground Hero … “I can hear you …”

CNN: Obama Administration Using These Gruesome Videos of Alleged Chemical Attack to Guilt America into Military Action Against Assad & Syrian
As reported at CNN, the Obama Administration is using gruesome and disturbing videos of the aftermath of a chemical attack against the Syrian people by Syrian President Assad. But how is this any different than being told that a chemical attack occurred? It’s more of the same play on emotional, rather than telling us, “We the People” and Congress, what is the reason why there needs to be US involvement in a Syrian civil war. Of course this is heinous, but there are many things that occur in this world that are heinous that the US does nothing about. Sec. of State John Kerry had stated regarding Syria, ‘Not the Time to Be Silent Spectators to Slaughter’. So let’s understand this, the first 100,000 people killed in Syria, that was OK to be a silent spectator, but now that chemical weapons were used, that is different? Really?
Barack Obama, John Kerry, et all have still failed to explain how this was against US national security.
I still do not know how Obama could draw a “red line” yet have nothing in place so if one went over that line, retaliation would occur. You don’t make such claims and ultimatums if you have butkis. This rodeo clown is so used to playing politics with his rhetoric against the GOP, that he has no concept how to act as a leader on world events. Instead, he folded like a house of cards and showed he has zero leadership skills.
These are some of the hard-to-stomach images that the Obama administration has shown a select group of senators in closed-door briefings to make the case that a limited military attack on Syria is justified.
CNN was the first to obtain the 13 different videos seen by members of the Senate Intelligence Committee that depict the gruesome scene of an chemical weapons attack in Syria on August 21. The administration told senators that their authenticity was verified by the intelligence community.
The attack, allegedly carried out by Syrian forces under President Bashar al-Assad, has touched off the most critical foreign policy question since the uprising began in 2011: Is a military response merited?
Video Warning – Disturbing in nature
As the anniversary of 9-11 is nearly upon us and the one year anniversary of the Benghazi terror attack, Obama’s greatest obstacle is how does he justify attacking Assad that will benefit the Al-Qaeda infested Syrian government opposition, when we have supposedly been at war with these terrorists for 12 years? Sorry, but how does the United States act in any military fashion that would aid Al-Qaeda?

John Kerry: He Was For Assad, Before He was Against Him and Called Him Hitler … Kerry Seen in Pic Dining with Assad
How many of you would have had dinner with Adolf Hitler or Saddam Hussein?
Talk about your embarrassing pics and a lack of credibility. The UK Daily Mail has a 2009 photo of John Kerry having a pleasant dinner with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad and their wives. As reported at the Weekly Standard, Kerry has met with Assad on numerous occasions and once lauded Assad in 2011 as being a “very generous”. Hmm, that is a far cry from what Kerry is saying these days. It would appear that Obama’s Secretary of State has a severe credibility issue. I guess Kerry was for Assad before he was against him. How is it that Kerry goes from an intimate dinner for four to calling him the Hitler of our time. Really? I mean seriously, how many get to dine with Hitler? And this is the guy who is trying to sell us on attacking Syria?
Once again we see John Kerry, reporting for duty or is it reporting for dinner?
An astonishing photograph of John Kerry having a cozy and intimate dinner with Bashar al-Assad has emerged at the moment the U.S Secretary of State is making the case to bomb the Syrian dictator’s country and remove him from power.
Kerry, who compared Assad to Adolf Hitler and Saddam Hussein yesterday, is pictured around a small table with his wife Teresa Heinz and the Assads in 2009.
Assad and Kerry, then a Massachusetts senator, lean in towards each other and appear deep in conversation as their spouses look on.
A waiter is pictured at their side with a tray of green drinks, believed to be lemon and crushed mint
The picture was likely taken in February 2009 in the Naranj restaurant in Damascus, when Kerry led a delegation to Syria to discuss finding a way forward for peace in the region.
Well, I personally believe that — I mean, this is my belief, okay?” Kerry said. “But President Assad has been very generous with me in terms of the discussions we have had. And when I last went to — the last several trips to Syria — I asked President Assad to do certain things to build the relationship with the United States and sort of show the good faith that would help us to move the process forward.”
Looks like John Kerry has protesters at his home telling him “Hands off Syria” and it does not look like a Tea Party rally.
Hey, and go to Patterico’s Pontification … look who is shaking the hand of Assad, it is none other than two faced Nancy Pelosi. I guess she had to shake his hand in order to see what a miserable, murderous dictator he was.
Liberal Dennis Kucinich Says Barack Obama Risks Impeachment If He Acts Against Syria Without Congressional Approval
At least there is some consistency on the LEFT to the Imperial Presidents actions.
Former Ohio Congressman and self-avowed Lib Dennis Kucinich warned that President Barack Obama faces impeachment if he takes military action against Syria without congressional approval because as there was no no “imminent or actual threat” to America. Kucinich also takes issue with how Obama phrased his statement earlier today; however, I am not sure how this is an epiphany to anyone that Obama cares little about the US Constitution and following it.
On Hannity Friday night, guest host Tucker Carlson had Kucinich on the show to discuss the following tweet, which links to a Washington Post article about how the administration is insisting that President Obama “has both the authority and determination to make his own decision on a military strike against Syria.”
Not so, says Kucinich, and the president risks impeachment if he does. “There is no imminent or actual threat to the United States of America. If there was, then people expect the president to defend us. But in this case the president is going on his own,” Kucinich explains.
“It’s not ‘I the President,’ it’s ‘We the People of the United States,’ Kucinich says after quoting the president saying earlier on Friday: “I meant what I said, I have not made a final decision.” Kucinich points to Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, which says only Congress has the power to take America to war. “That’s a fundamental principle and if the president throws that away, disregards that I think there will be consequences for him,” he said.
Benghazi Whistle-Blower Witness Greg Hicks Responds to Questions from Rep Trey Goudy (SC-R): “I Was Stunned. My Jaw Dropped. I Was Embarrassed” After Susan Rice TV Appearance on 5 Sunday Talk Shows
Today during the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee on Benghazi hearings, “Whistle-Blower” witness Greg Hicks time and time again contradicted the Obama Administration’s, the Hillary Clinton State Department’s and the concocted BS that has been put forth regarding the before during and after Benghazi consulate terror attacks. During part of his testimony Greg Hicks answered questions from Rep. Trey Goudy (SC-R) and told the committee that Susan Rice never consulted State Department officials in Libya before making her five appearance on Sunday Shows shilling her lie to the American people that the Benghazi attack was a result of an anti-Islamic VIDEO. Greg Hicks was the highest ranking officer at the time on the ground in Libya, following the death of Ambassador Stevens and Susan Rice never talked to him. When Hicks was asked about Ambassador Susan Rice’s performance on the Sunday talk shows, Hicks stated … “I Was Stunned. My Jaw Dropped. I Was Embarrassed.”
Must see VIDEO … hours after the Benghazi Consulate attack, the President of Libya said it was an attack with possible terror links. When Hicks was asked, did the President of Libya ever mentioned a spontaneous protest over a VIDEO tape, he answered, NO. Hicks was asked, when Ambassador Stevens spoke to you just minutes before he died, as a dying declaration, what precisely did he say to you? Hicks responded, “he said, Greg, we are under attack”. Rep. Goudy asked, did he [Stevens] mention one word about a protest or demonstration? Hicks responded, no, he did not.
EXIT QUESTION: So who does not think that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton blew the Benghazi consulate attack response and tried to cover it up? Obama sent his minions out to cover this up. Sorry LEFT, not even Richard Nixon had anyone die as a result of Watergate.
‘This Week’ Interview: U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice blames attack on spontaneous protest
‘FOX News Sunday’ – Susan Rice blames attack on spontaneous protest from offensive video, not pre-planned and was not against US foreign policy
Hillary Clinton during earlier Benghazi Senate hearing caught in lie and unable to answer simple question, why didn’t you just ask individuals on the ground what happened? That was too difficult according to Hillary.
From Reuters, Israel has bombed Syria for the second time this week. Powerful explosions rocked the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday. Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military facility just north of the capital. Earlier this week, Israel carried out a bombing run to prevent missile transfers to Islamist militants (VIDEO). President Barack Obama defended Israel’s right to bomb targets inside Syria to protect themselves. Syria is a tinderbox about ready to explode and we have a “dithering” president who makes claims of acting if a “red line” was crossed and then backs off as he does with domestic policy like the clueless over his head “Community Organizer” in Chief he is. Being President is just a little different when you play chicken against those in the Middle East than the GOP isn’t Barack? Obama is between a “Barack” and a hard place and has no idea what to do. How’s that Arab Spring working out for you Mr. President?
Israeli jets devastated Syrian targets near Damascus on Sunday in a heavy overnight air raid that Western and Israeli officials called a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
As Syria’s two-year-old civil war veered into the potentially atomic arena of Iran’s confrontation with Israel and the West over its nuclear program, people were woken in the Syrian capital by explosions that shook the ground like an earthquake and sent pillars of flame high into the night sky.
“Night turned into day,” one man told Reuters from his home at Hameh, near one of the targets, the Jamraya military base.
Amateur VIDIO of huge Explosion outside Damascus, Syria
Israeli warplanes bombed the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday for the second time in recent days, according to Syrian state media and reports from activists, signaling a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighboring countries that had already been exacerbated by the conflict raging in Syria.
Though there was no official confirmation that Israel had carried out the attack, the Israeli military later announced that it had deployed two of its Iron Dome rocket defense batteries near its northern border in response to what it called “ongoing situational assessments.”
Videos posted on the Internet by activists showed a huge fireball erupting on Mount Qassioun, a landmark hill overlooking the capital on which the Syrian government has deployed much of the firepower it is using against rebel-controlled areas surrounding the city.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of this senseless act of terror and to their families and friends
