“…Clinton made a bevy of startlingly anti-factual remarks. He announced, for instance, that conservatives had criticized him for obsessing about bin Laden during his presidency – rather than the truth that he was roundly condemned for doing next to nothing about this serious threat to American security. Clinton blamed the Bush Administration for failing to stop the al-Qaeda terrorists before 9/11, saying that the Administration had eight months to get bin Laden and didn’t. That conveniently overlooks that Clinton’s Administration had eight years to do that job, with al-Qaeda using the last two of those years to plan 9/11.
“One of Clinton’s bigger whoppers was this declaration about the fight against bin Laden: ‘I got closer to killing him than anybody has gotten since. And if I were still president, we’d have 20,000 more troops [in Afghanistan] trying to kill him.'”
Uh-huh. Now, of course, Ol’ Blue Eyes claims he’s the victim of a “conservative hit job.”
