Skip to comments.Why Clinton Blew His Top: FNC's Wallace Only Interviewer to Ask About Pre-9/11 Failures
Posted on 09/24/2006 12:45:08 PM PDT by george76
By now, nearly everybody who cares has probably seen former President Bill Clinton's -- let's say 'animated' -- response to 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace's questions about his administration's failed efforts to demolish al-Qaeda before the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
But Wallace himself hit on the key media bias question ...
Trying to explain Clinton's hot reaction, Wallace said he read the transcripts of the ex-President's other media appearances in the last few days -- on NBC's 'Meet the Press,' CNN's 'Larry King Live,' FNC's 'On the Record with Greta van Susteren,' among other programs.
Wallace said he was "astonished" that none of the others even bothered to raise the terrorism question with Clinton, particularly with his team's attacks on ABC's "Path to 9/11" docu-drama.
Clinton sounded like a left-wing press critics with his repeated jibes at Fox as a "conservative" or "right-wing" outfit.
But what, besides liberal bias, explains the other journalists' total lack of interest in even asking a single question about Clinton's inadequate terror response?

I hope that this puts to rest any charges of bias against Wallace by some of the folks out there in Freeper Land. Clinton had the nerve to accuse him of right wing pandering for asking about the elephant in the room.
I like it when Clinton wagged his finger at Chris Wallace and told him he was "smirking". Chris Wallace turned his head and laughed. Clinton slurred his words as if he suffered a stroke.
time flies when you're not having "sexual relatioins with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky"
Not to mention waiting on Al Gore to "get outta Chainey's house".
Now everyone in government was to bury the truth such as Able Danger.
The only thing Clinton fought was for his legacy. The Clinton presidency was all about him.
Now, I looked at your graphic, I thought of all the ranting lunatics who say "Bush knew, Bush orchestrated, Bush flew the freaking planes by remote control from a joystick in Sarasota," and whatever else they say.
And I look at your graphic, and apply my law, and I can't even find it within myself to accuse the failed former chief executive of doing such a thing; but my law is reliable, and so now I contemplate, who knew what, when.
Now, I would never say about Clinton what the psychos are saying about President Bush. But I am now given to wondering if he knew enough to act...
What is wrong with that picture?
Bill Clinton wearing a wedding ring. Everyone knows that Hillary is a Wino and Bill is a Hino.
I hope this shocked Wallace enough into saying 'I can't believe this man was ever president?'
Wallace is a good interviewer; he reminds me of a software tester, trying to find the bugs in a piece of software during testing. He goes after everyone with "annoying" questions. It's a good thing.
Well, he did have that heavy anchor hanging around his neck (Hillary).
When the director of the National Archives found out that Berger was being investigated by the FBI for stealing classified documents, the director's first call went to.... Bruce Lindsey.
That National Archives director was subsequently fired, but many suspect that before he left he likely destroyed the originals at Lindsey's request.
The New York Times finally got around to mentioning the story on page 16, below the fold, in a hit piece attacking Juanita Broaddrick's credibility.
Gorelick ( and the 9/11 Commission Report Dietrich L. Snell was a Senior Counsel & Team Leader ) were put in charge of disseminate what information got seen by the full Commission.
So the woman who created the Wall which blocked the flow of information, was again put in charge of blocking information to the Commission which was charged with finding out why information got blocked.
