OUTSTANDING Commentary here from Debra Burlingame and appearance on Hannity. These words are hers, not mine and no one nails it like Debra can!

"For those who missed it, here is FDNY (ret.) Jimmy Riches and me with Monica Crowley on "Hannity" last night. FYI, some 200 pages of 9/11 Commission memorandums and interview transcripts with Clinton administration senior national security officials and Clinton himself have been kept under wraps for 10 years. We have requested declassification reviews years ago. We hear nothing. "Pending." And while 43 of GWBush's presidential daily briefs (generated by CIA) were reviewed by the 9/11 commission, resulting in a 7,000 word summary (also never released), BILL CLINTON'S were never reviewed. Virtually the entire 9/11 plot and planning took place before Bush took office. Two of the hijackers entered the U.S. on Jan. 15, 2000. Over 60 people in the intel "community" knew this. There is a huge institutional buddy network cover up of Bill Clinton's fecklessness and moral failure in protecting this country. '93 WTC attack, 7 dead, 1,000 injured. '96 Khobar Towers Saudi Arabia, 19 servicemen dead, 498 injured. '98 U.S. embassy bombings, East Africa, 224 dead, 5,000 injured. Oct 2000, USS Cole, 17 sailors dead. Clinton response: ZERO."

I believe this is discussed in the book Dereliction of Duty by Robert Patterson. Clinton had opportunity to take down Bin Laden and failed to do so.
Wonder if the 9/11 families can sue the former Pres.

Debra Burlingame is unfortunately a minority of those New Yorkers that are critical of Democrats and how 9-11 was missed by the ones in charge of protecting the US. I would surmise and estimate that 80% of the family members of those that perished in 9-11 are still supporting and voting Democrat.

I heard the video on Clinton failing to take out Bin Laden when he had the chance, but this really isn't news to anyone following the history of Bin Laden prior to 911.

If I recall correctly the head of opposition to Bin Laden was taken out the day before 911. He famously made a comment when Bin Laden was in the sights of him and a group of special ops but were NEVER given the go ahead to take him out.

His comment was, Are there no men in Washington.

Berger picked up the phone at one of the busy controller consoles and called the president. Amazingly, President Clinton was not available. Berger tried again and again. Bin Laden was within striking distance. The window of opportunity was closing fast. The plan of attack was set and the Tomahawk [missile] crews were ready. For about an hour Berger couldn’t get the commander in chief on the line…

Finally, the president accepted Berger’s call. There was discussion, there were pauses – and no decision. The president wanted to talk with his secretaries of Defense and State. He wanted to study the issue further. Berger was forced to wait. The clock was ticking. The president eventually called back. He was still indecisive. He wanted more discussion… Read more:

That really is the issue of the day with Democrats. This isn’t about the law. When someone declares war on you, you are at war whether you want to be or not. The choice is to die or fight back. The Democrats would have us all with our heads cut off & sitting on a pike.

Thanks LSUfan.

Yes, Virginia, Ron Paul is a 9/11 Truther (and a Coddler of Racists)
