Senator Clinton - The History Revisionist

After former President Clinton's tirade on Fox News last week, Senator Clinton has now come out in support of her husband's policies on Al-Qaeda. Specifically, Senator Clinton stated:
"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 United States' he would have taken it more seriously than history suggests it was taken by our current president and his national security team."
But, it sure didn't take long for the vast right-wing conspiracy to call her out on that. For we can quickly find the following document signed by President Clinton in 1998: "The Intelligence Community has strong indications that Bin Laden intends to conduct or sponsor attacks inside the United States."

I guess that's just another one of those surprises that Senator Clinton has been hit with by her husband. It's really sad. America, do you want a President like Senator Clinton who is in such denial that she would try to rewrite history in this manner to save the legacy of her name? I hope to hear that she retracts her statement after it's been brought to light that her husband not only saw an intelligence document but signed it - he was well aware of Bin Laden's aspirations with 2 years to go in his final term. And there would still be the USS Cole attack. This is pure political posturing. With less than 2 months to go until the mid-term elections, the Democrats are really trying to show that they "tried" to do something about terrrorism. The DNC knows that they need to appear as war hawks or they will lose again. If they want to win, I don't think they need to focus on their incompetence at handling the "law & order" problem that they perceived terrorism and Bin Laden as being before 9/11.

Further, I still think the best way to defeat Senator Clinton in 2008 is to defeat her in 2006! How is her campaign going in New York? Anyone wish to comment on that? I haven't heard much about it.

It's strange that even when they're together in public (which is RARE), one gets the feeling that they can barely stand each other. Yet she still realizes that unless she can make it appear as if the Democrats actually care about terrorism, her hopes for 2006 and 2008 are gone.

I believe the American public still believes "Homeland Security" is of upmost importance, and they (the public) don't believe that the Democrats will do an adequate job.
