The problem is, his supporters and the liberal press are keeping him in the news. How I wish everyone would ignore him!

Indeed, that is all Time and Newsweek do anymore, along with providing weekly pictures for the DNC propoganda machine via their covers.

I heartily echo timesink's suggestion about moving the magazines so they aren't visible, or covering them with another rag. Also, anyone who has a subscription should cancel it immediately, and demand a refund.

Berger wanted Ground Troops: On Nov. 7, 2000, Berger met with William Cohen, then Secretary of Defense, in the Pentagon. Berger wanted "boots on the ground"—U.S. special ops forces deployed inside Afghanistan on a search-and-destroy mission targeting bin Laden. Cohen said he would look at the idea, but he and General Hugh Shelton, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were dead set against it. They feared a repeat of Desert One, the 1980 fiasco when special ops commandos crashed in Iran during an abortive mission to rescue American hostages.

Riiiiight. None of the generals were concerned with the Delta Force deaths in Somalia that were a direct result of Clinton/Aspen failure to supply proper equipment for the mission. No, I'm sure that never crossed anyone's mind. Instead, let's go all the way back to 1980. That way, the Clinton Administration isn't (further) tarnished, and what's really nice is some of the younger readers might mistakenly think the reluctance might be due to something Reagan did. Excuses don't get much sweeter than that.

***Clinton delayed transition because from his perspective the election was in dispute.***

CORRECT! I figure Bush lost at least a month of prep time to battling Gore in court. That could translate into the Bush administration having revised the new aggressive version of Clinton's Osama Bin Laden plan by AUGUST 4th.

Perhaps the bitter truth of the matter is that because of his endless delays and appeals, GORE prevented Bush from taking out OBL.

Please add US News and World Report to your list of useless toilet paper. These three trashy mags are leftist propagandizers, nothing more.

Another preposterous piece of putrid propaganda from the liberal anti-American socialist SOB's at "Slime" magazine.

I'm asking this question without reading the article: Why didn't Clinton implement his own plan, he certainly had time to attack al Qaeda?

He tried. He tried harder than any President ever tried in history but his staff didnt bring him the completed plan until just before the election. Given his poor credibility because of what the terrible Republicans had done to him, he couldnt have unleased an attack without all the Republicans screaming "wag the dog," "October Surprise" and that Clinton was trying to throw the election to Gore. (Sarcasm/off)

no need to fire any more cruise missles at Bin Laden.

Besides that we were almost out of missiles because of his policies.

looks like they are swinging the boat around to play pin the blame on Bush. Clinton did nothing and admitted it.

Predator drones over Afghanistan would have prevented 9-11...yeah right, TIME.

Those predator drones would have had to be over Florida & New Jersey.

The highjackers were already here and deep into the planning stages.

TIME can try, but on April 24, 1980, when that crash occured attempting to rescue the Iranian hostages, Jimmy Carter was President. Regan was elected in November of 1980.

I don't know, maybe he likes them. I don't think he was serious about attacking them anyway.

"If we had done anything, say, two weeks before the election, we’d be accused of helping Al Gore," a former senior Clinton aide told TIME.

Gag me with a spoon.

> pathetic dentist's office throw-away

LOL That's the best description of that rag that I've ever seen!

LOL, too. I suppose TIME is a good alternative to anesthetics. After reading it, pain is really irrelevant.

BINGO!

This is THE way to counter this spin...throw it back on AlGore and Joe (Droopy) LIEberman...and say it's THEIR fault, as well as the DEMONRats! They caused the delays...(maybe we can also say the document reviews were delayed by the KLINTON/GORON trashing of the White House...)

Hell, throw Slick in as well...we needed to REPLENISH our ordinance levels, after his attempts to distract the public by WASTING THEM on some Camel's A$$, and irrelevant targets!

Start the faxes/e-mails...let's SPIN THIS OUR WAY for a change...don't wait/rely on any (R)'s in office to do this, let's just do it ourselves!

I'm on it! Nicely done, Hessian!
