Thread Name: BS: thoughts on Clinton
Subject: RE: BS: thoughts on Clinton
Just around the time that the the Millenium celebration terrorist attacks were thwarted, a Senior Government official (sorry, I didn't note his name at the time) stated that if the American people had any idea of the number and scope of terrorist plots that had been stopped within hours of their planned commencement, they would would be afraid to go about their normal lives.
The attention paid to Clinton's penis was business as usual - partisan politics. Unfortunately, Clinton himself caused the additional waste with his lies about his relationship with "that woman". To imply that all other government activities stopped is ludicrous. To suggest that this particular attack or a similar one would have been avoided had Clinton's sex life been ignored is at best naive.
