From yesterday’s interview:
If you can criticize me for one thing, you can criticize me for this, after the Cole I had battle plans drawn to go into Afghanistan, overthrow the Taliban, and launch a full scale attack search for Bin Laden. But we needed baseing rights in Uzbekistan which we got after 9/11. The CIA and the FBI refused to certify that Bin Laden was responsible while I was there. They refused to certify. So that meant I would have had to send a few hundred special forces in helicopters and refuel at night.
Cue the judge:
Thus in his supposed emeritus years has Mr. Clinton taken forceful and triumphant action for honesty, and for us; action as vital and as courageous as any of his presidency; action as startling and as liberating, as any, by any one, in these last five long years.
That’s a reference to Iraq and Afghanistan. In the Olberdouche’s universe, Clinton defending his record on counterterrorism is “as liberating” as Bush trying to democratize 50 million Muslims. This, from a man who once referred to my boss as a “nitwit.” Oh well. Just more play-doh for Johnny Dollar.
