Hubby, Clinton is the only president that tried to take out bin Laden. Bush didn't and ignored him. Clinton is the only president that recognized bin Laden as a threat. bin Laden as a threat was discovered during the Clinton Administration. I doubt very much whether Bill Clinton would have let 911 happen. As it was, he uncovered and thwarted quite a few plots such as the attempt to blow up International Airport in Los Angeles.
The facts are not game-playing.
Ron, Osama (if he is still alive, which might be doubtful since he requires dialysis) is rejoicing at the ineptness of this Administration. He doesn't have to do another 911. Bush's incompetence is making his job easier.
Osama (if he is alive) is a dangerous man because he knows the Bush vulnerabilities and is taking advantage of them daily.
Unfortunately, brutal fanaticism does not necessarilly equate with stupidity. But it's necessary for someone in our government to really know how it works. Bush doesn't have a clue.
All ya' gotta' do is listen to the words of bin Laden. His thing is that he doesn't want foreign troops dictating religious views on Muslims. It's that simple. He doesn't have the capacity to dominate the world economically or militarilly. He's winning recruits by default.
