Until now, Clinton's eerie words had not been made public. But a businessman who had access to the nearly 13-year-old recording handed it over to Sky News Australia, which broadcast it in a report Monday.
"I'm just saying, you know, if I were Usama 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 said on the recording.
"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," he added.
Clinton had recently left office at the time of the speech.
3000 dead to save 300?
Ok. Did he possibly know what was going to happen? No. But he is an opportunist. He will use whatever he can at whatever time he can to make himself look better. There is ample evidence to suggest things like the Jamie Gorelick wall put up between agencies, an unwillingness to do what was necessary, and Clinton turning a blind eye to what was happening well before 9/11 directly contributed to 9/11 happening.
Remember, 9/11 wasn't the first time the towers were attacked. Over the course of the next 8 years, we were attacked time and time again. After Mogadishu and Black Hawk Down, it was clear the administration had no stomach for war. (He had interns to diddle, after all.)
This illustrates however that Democrats and Liberals are consistently wrong in their understanding of the world. Economics, foreign policy, social issues... they really understand nothing. They get in power and make decisions that affect our lives. Or gets us killed.
Giving them power results in death. Remember this next time you vote for a raging liberal. The consequences aren't always apparent immediately, which is tough in this instant-on age we live in.
But there are consequences. Clinton's decisions took 8 years. What will happen in the next 8 years when the consequences of Obama's decisions are fully wrought upon us?
