NEWT: CLINTON COMMITTED ONE OF WORST CRIMES, ENDANGERED COUNTRY IF HIT ABDULLAH UP FOR CASH
October 6--Newt Gingrich, appearing tonight on Hannity and Colmes, was asked to comment on the revelations by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, that bill clinton, when president, attempted to extort money from the Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah for the Clinton Presidential Library by using the threat of siccing the FBI on the Khobar Towers bombing suspects the kingdom had in custody.
Gingrich, outraged, said that if clinton did this, he committed one of the worst crimes in modern history and endangered the country. He added that it would be important for Freeh and his sources to testify about this under oath.
"I remember exactly what happened. Bruce Lindsey said to me on the phone, 'My God, a second plane has hit the tower.' And I said, 'Bin Laden did this.' that's the first thing I said. He said, 'How can you be sure?' I said 'Because only bin Laden and the Iranians could set up the network to do this and they [the Iranians] wouldn't do it because they have a country in targets. Bin Laden did it.'
I thought that my virtual obsession with him was well placed and I was full of regret that I didn't get him."
"Mr. bin Laden used to live in Sudan. He was expelled from Saudi Arabia in '91 and he went to the Sudan.
We'd been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start dealing with them again. They released him [bin Laden].
So I pleaded with the Saudis to take him, 'cause they could have; but they thought it was a hot potato. They didn't and that's how he wound up in Afghanistan."

f mutability of meaning was necessary for the survival of the clintons--their survival hinged ultimately on the deconstruction of words and laws--it is more than a little ironic, and a manifestation of the special sway and shortsightedness of the pathologic ego, that clinton's monument to himself will necessarily define the clintons with the permanence of great inviolate places of iconic architecture.
Whereas a huckster removes meaning from institutions--the wife picked up where the husband left off--an architect encodes meaning in buildings. James S. Polshek, the architect with the dubious distinction of having been commissioned to build the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, Arkansas, believes that a successful architectural solution must necessarily be rooted in relevance.
Just as Polshek's buildings have physical layers, so too do they have layers of meaning. His Rose Center for Earth and Space, for example, is informed formally and programmatically by the historic architecture of a designated landmark even as it redefines itself, (often too self-consciously, in my view), in Star-Trekian terms. Reduced to its essence, the building is the nascent universe before the Big Bang, the promise of the undifferentiated cell in its mother's womb.
The "bridge to the 21st century" was, perhaps, clinton's most delusional conceit, so it is not surprising that it would become clinton's self-referential metaphor of choice. His library was to be that bridge, if he had anything to say about it...
The architect is often the master of the inside joke, witness Robert Venturi's postmodern chairs. Venturi exploited--unabashedly and with abandon--the vocabulary of Las Vegas, its stage-set-as-reality and its roadside culture--bright, clashing, ugly and fake. The architect's inside joke is his hedge against the sycophancy that comes with patronage.
The flip side of the encoded meaning of the architect is the terrorist's decoding of it. To bin Laden, the World Trade Center was Jewish capitalism encoded in urban space. If Polshek's vision of clinton's library is a bridge, the inside joke is that, at best, it is a bridge to nowhere.
More likely, it is a bridge to the 7th century...or a doublewide to house clinton double-speak. Take your choice.

Bubbah is an immoral fool whose actions have betrayed his country.
Excellent work once again, Mia!
I saw that. Man did Newt make a point out of that. And the loser Colmes quickly tried to say that the Rove/Plame bit was more important. Thanks for constantly reminding us of how corrupt and devoid of humanity the Clintons really were.
The heart of liberalism is exposing itself.
Great art and it's art with a 3-d message. Now that's communicating.
In Mia T, I've found someone who hates the Clintons as much as I do (or at least I hope I'm interpreting these postings to reflect that view). BTTT
When I first read this here:
I about went through the roof. This is such an egregious act of conduct, and it was harmful to our national security.
The implication that a sitting U.S. President would actively solicit funds from a foreign head of state is too chilling for words.
On one hand, the pervert pampered China; on the other, he ignored Islamic terrorism.
Will this stop Newt from hanging out with Hillary?
Bill needs to be behind bars now!
"Will this stop Newt from hanging out with Hillary?"
Will it stop GHW Bush and GW Bush from hanging out with Clinton? What's that about fleas?
"In Mia T, I've found someone who hates the Clintons as much as I do (or at least I hope I'm interpreting these postings to reflect that view)."
There are plenty of people, especially on Free Republic, who hate them just as passionately as do you. Count me among that group.
I wonder if Prince Abdullah 'did' donate to Clinton's library? Dan Burton would know.......
The Enemy is now Within...
and always has been.
BILL CLINTON's refusing 3 free offers from the Sudan during the 1990's to give us OSAMA bin LADEN on a silver platter =
911 Lifesaving Hero RICK RESCORLA, r.i.p.
"There are plenty of people, especially on Free Republic, who hate them just as passionately as do you. Count me among that group."
"The problem with this report, is that I wouldn't trust Freeh to speak my weight. He's trying to make sure that all the crap he allowed to go on during "his watch" is stuck on someone else. He's as dirty, and as guilty as any of the Clinton crew."
There's a very good reason one old adage is an old adage -- Don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
